Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Casey would waltz with the Strawberry Blonde
And the band played on

Left allemande the corner, box the gnat at home
Girls star left around the ring you roam
You box the gnat at home then dosado your maid
Swing your girl around and promenade
He married the girl with the strawberry curl
And the band played on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round the track
Touch 1/4 and then scoot back
Single hinge then swing thru
Boy run right then wheel & deal tonight
Swing the corner facing you
Then go left allemande, come back promenade home
He married the girl with the strawberry curl
And the band played on


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Casey would waltz with the Strawberry Blonde
And the band played on
He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played...

Four ladies chain, turn those girls, chain them home
Then y'all promenade
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads separate, star thru and then
Do a double pass thru, track two
Relay the deucey go on your heel and toe
The band played on
He'd glide cross the floor
, all eight circulate
Swing corner and all promenade
He married the girl with the strawberry curl
And the band played on

The Band Played On
 
 

Matt Casey formed a social club that beat the town for style,
And hired for a meeting place a hall.
When payday came around each week they greased the floor with wax
And danced with noise and vigor at the ball.
Each Saturday you'd see them dressed up in Sunday clothes,
Each lad would have his sweetheart by his side.
When Casey led the first grand march they all would fall in line
Behind the man who was their joy and pride.
For ---

Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde
And the band played on;
He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played on;
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded
The poor girl would shake with alarm;
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on

Such kissing in the corner and such whisp'ring in the hall,
And telling tales of love behind the stairs
As Casey was the favorite and he that ran the ball
Of kissing and lovemaking did his share.
At twelve o'clock exactly they all would fall in line,
Then march down to the dining hall and eat.
But Casey would not join them although ev'ry thing was fine,
But he stayed upstairs and exercised his feet,
For ---

Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde
And the band played on;
He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played on;
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded
The poor girl would shake with alarm;
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on

Now when the dance was over and the band played Home Sweet Home,
They played a tune at Casey's own request.
He thank'd them very kindly for the favors they had shown
Then he'd waltz once with the girl that he loved best.
Most all the friends are married that Casey used to know,
And Casey, too, has taken him a wife.
The blond he used to waltz and glide with on the ballroom floor
Is happy Mrs. Casey now for life.
For ---

Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde
And the band played on;
He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played on;
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded
The poor girl would shake with alarm;
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on

Composed by Charles B. Ward.
Lyrics by John F. Palmer.
Recorded by Dan W. Quinn; Guy Lombardo; many others.
