Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left in the Alamo style, you balance out and in
Box the gnat and pull on by, the corner allemande
A grand right & left as you walk around the ring
When you meet with your lady, you will swing
Swing and whirl then allemande the corner waiting there
Dosado your own and you promenade the square
Promenade the ring boys, you're gonna step it light
To a square dance in the old red barn tonight


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

First and third lead out to the right, circle round the track
You break to a line and move it up and back
Pass thru and wheel & deal, then double pass thru
First two left, the next two right and do a right & left thru
*Turn the girls and square thru 3/4 'round I sing
Move onto the next and cross trail, your corner swing
Swing and whirl and promenade
**You're gonna step it light
To a square dance in the old red barn tonight


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Square thru 3/4 'round and make a line I sing
You bend the line and cross trail, the corner swing

**I could dance all night, we'll dance 'til broad daylight

(We're A-Dancin') In The Old Red Barn Tonight Lyrics ID: 2745

Just pile all the hay by the barn today
And when you get done don't you go away
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Got the boards all waxed cause the floor is cracked
If it get too slick with the gunny sack
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Oh Doc's done rosined up his bow
And Zeke just tuned his old banjo
That old accordion man is standing by

Got a special date, I can hardly wait
Gotta scrub up now, hope the folks ain't late
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Hey banjo is my cowboy style
Now swing your partner go hog wild
You swing your maw and you swing your paw
And don't forget old Arkansas

Folks gather round, some are out from town
Some of 'em here for a real hoedown
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Well shake a leg cause the gal named Peg
We will sit one out for the fatter kid
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

She's the cutest gal you ever did see
I hope she takes her time for me
The boys all wink at her when they pass by

We'll take a sips from the loving cup
And we're gonna dance till the sun comes up
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Lyrics by Robert Louis Carleton.
Recorded by Redd Harper; Texas Jim Lewis.
