Cue Sheet

FIGURE

Head couples center and back to the ring
Side couples center with a right hand star
Go all the way around
Back with a left and you're goin' to town
Pick up your corner as you come down
With a right foot up and your left foot down
Turn the outside in and the inside out
Turn that arkie star about
Turn the inside out and the outside in and
Turn that arkie star again
Break in the center and everybody swing
Allemande left just once and promenade the girl you've swung

(Repeat dance three more times until you get original partners back.)

 
Cue Sheet

FIGURE

(Part 1)
Swing boys swing, now everybody swing
Promenade around the ring go two by two
Back home again with Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Everybody swing now, swing Sioux City Sue

(Part 2)
Now first couple right and circle once around
Dosado that opposite gal right shoulder once and around
Dosado your partner and swing her too
Both couples swing, now swing Sioux City Sue

(Couple #1 repeats part 2 with couples 3 & 4. Then repeat Part 1 again,
and then repeat entire sequence for couples #2, 3 & 4.)

Sioux City Sue
 
 

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few"
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue
The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do"

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue
I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue
