Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER    Basic

Why don'tcha say "hello!", why don'tcha dosado (partner?)
Now join up hands and circle eight, you know
Hey, stop that foolin' round and swing 'er boys, swing with your pet
Allemande left and then that grand ol' right and left
You won't be satisfied until she's by your side
A-promenadin' 'til that moment when
You'll say "hello!" and see her smile
and swing her in your arms again


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade 3/4, that ain't far
Cut through the sides and form a right hand star
Now turn your corners by the left, your partners by the right
Go back and swing that corner, boys, with all your might
Four men will left hand star, and travel round the set
Now put your arm around the girl you just left
It's a star promenade, take her back home with you
Now balance out, then swing 'em 2 by 2


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Your corners dosado, now tell your own "hello!"
Now join up hands and circle left, you know
Hey, stop that messin' round and swing 'er boys, swing with your pet
Allemande left and then that grand ol' right and left
You won't be satisfied until she's by your side
A-promenadin' 'til that moment when
You'll say "hello!" and see her smile,
and swing her in your arms again


CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

Your corners dosado, then tell your own "hello!"
And then ya swing 'er, boys, she's nice to know
Four ladies right hand star across and turn the opposite man
Gents star back 3/4 to a left allemande
It's grand ol' right and left, ya travel round the set
And when you meet you promenade with your pet
Promenade home and fellas you ought to know
Enough to swing your gal in calico
Then you step right back and say "hello!"

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

You join up hands and circle round the town (all sing) round the town
Now swing your corner lady round and round (all sing) round and round
Then do that allemande left and around the ring you go
A grand ol' right and left, walk on the heel and toe
A right hand by this pretty baby, dopaso the right hand lady
Partner left, the corner right, partner left, then turn in place
Then all four ladies chain across the way (all sing) cross the way
You chain 'em back and there you let 'em stay (all sing) let 'em stay
And then you promenade back home to the weeping willow tree
(All sing) and may the world go well with thee


FIGURE   

Allemande left your corner, partners right, now box the gnat
The girls go right, the gents go left, around the outside track
And now you pass 'er once and on you go, until you get back home
And dosado that girl you call your own, go full around
Allemande left corner girl, turn your own with a right hand whirl
Gents step in with a left hand star, go once from where you are
You catch all eight with a right hand half around, back by the left
And corners promenade, go round the set, round the set you go
You promenade 'em home to the weeping willow tree
(All sing) and may the world go well with thee


FIGURE   

1 & 3 a right & left thru, the same two ladies chain
You turn this new little girl and promenade back home again
And then you lead out to the right, circle 4 with all your might
You circle four on the inside ring, go once around with the dear old things
Then pass right thru and swap and swing the girls, swing the girls
And promenade this lady round the world, round the world you go
You promenade 'em home to the weeping willow tree
(All sing) and may the world go well with thee

There Is A Tavern In The Town Lyrics ID: 2407

There is a tavern in the town, in the town,
And there my dear love sits him down, sits him down,
And drinks his wine 'mid laughter free,
And never, never thinks of me.

Fare thee well, for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends must part, must part
Adieu, adieu, kind friends adieu, adieu, adieu,
I can no longer stay with you, stay with you,
I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee.

He left me for a damsel dark, damsel dark,
Each Friday night they used to spark, used to spark,
And now my love, once true to me,
Takes that dark damsel on his knee.

Fare thee well, for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends must part, must part
Adieu, adieu, kind friends adieu, adieu, adieu,
I can no longer stay with you, stay with you,
I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee.

Oh! dig my grave both wide and deep, wide and deep,
Put tombstones at my head and feet, head and feet,
And on my breast carve a turtle dove
To signify I died of love.

Fare thee well, for I must leave thee,
Do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends must part, must part
Adieu, adieu, kind friends adieu, adieu, adieu,
I can no longer stay with you, stay with you,
I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee.

Lyrics by traditional; F. J. Adams.
Recorded by Amy Birch; Rudy Vallee; Woody Guthrie; others.
