Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner, partner left a dopaso
Turn partner left, the corner by the right
Partner left for an allemande thar, boys back in and star
Slip the clutch, left allemande and weave
Listen to the mockingbird, listen to the mockingbird
Swing your partner, promenade
Listen to the mockingbird, listen to the mockingbird
That little bird is singing a happy song


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) a right & left thru and then you roll away
Pass thru and separate, around one (to a line) I say
Everybody a right & left thru, and turn the ladies there
Slide thru, touch 1/4, scoot back, twice
Listen to the mockingbird, listen to the mockingbird
Swing, swing your partner, promenade
Listen to the mockingbird, listen to the mockingbird
That little bird is singing a happy song

Listen To The Mockingbird
 
 

I'm dreaming now of Hally, sweet Hally, sweet Hally;
I'm dreaming now of Hally,
For the thought of her is one that never dies:
Shes sleeping in the valley, the valley, the valley
She's sleeping in the valley,
And the mocking bird is singing where she lies.

Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
The mocking bird still singing o'er her grave;
Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
Still singing where the weeping willows wave.

Ah! well I yet remember, remember, remember
Ah! well I yet remember,
When we gather'd in the cotton side by side;
'Twas in the mild September, September, September,
'Twas in the mild September,
And the mocking bird was singing far and wide.

Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
The mocking bird still singing o'er her grave;
Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
Still singing where the weeping willows wave.

When the charms of spring awaken, awaken, awaken,
When the charms of spring awaken,
And the mocking bird is singing on the bough.
I feel like one forsaken, forsaken, forsaken.
I feel like one forsaken,
Since my Hally is no longer with me now.

Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
The mocking bird still singing o'er her grave;
Listen to the mocking bird,
Listen to the mocking bird,
Still singing where the weeping willows wave.

Lyrics by Septimus Winner (aka Alice Hawthorne).
Recorded by Dick Milburn (Whistling Dick).
