Cue Sheet


Now face your corner, dosado, right shoulder round you go
Your partner dosado, that's on a heel & toe
All join hands, circle to the left, go walking round the ring
Hey all the way around till you're home again
Left hand to the corner, allemande left, come home and find your own
You swing your partner, swing the girl, promenade her home
You promenade, come on and sing with me
In the good old summertime

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now head (side) two ladies chain, go straight across the ring
Side (head) ladies chain, it's straight across again
Head (side) ladies chain home, you turn the girl
Side (head) ladies chain (home), now face your corners all
Dosado that corner girl, now bow to her, swing
Swing that corner lady, keep that girl, promenade
You promenade, come on and sing with me
In the good old summertime

In The Good Old Summertime

There's a time in each year that we always hold dear,
Good old summertime.
With the birds and the trees and sweet scented breezes,
Good old summertime.

When your day's work is over then you are in clover,
And life is one beautiful rhyme,
No trouble annoying, each one is enjoying
The good old summertime.

In the good old summertime,
In the good old summertime,
Strolling through the shady lanes with that baby of mine
You hold her hand and she holds yours,
And that's a very good sign,
That she's your tootsey-wootsey
In the good old summertime,

Oh to swim in the pool you'd play hooky from school
Good old summer time
You would play "ring-a-rosie" with Jim, Kate and Josie
Good old summer time
Those are days full of pleasure we now fondly treasure
When we never thought it a crime
To go stealing cherries with face brown as berries
In the good old summer time

Composed by George Evans.
Lyrics by Ren Shields.
