Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left in the alamo style, balance
Swing thru, balance
Swing thru again, turn thru
Allemande left, weave the ring
No one here can love or understand me
Swing and promenade
Make my bed and light the light
And I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye-bye


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4, dosado
Swing thru, boys run right
Tag the line, face right, ferris wheel
Centers pass thru, turn thru, left allemande
Swing, promenade
Make my bed and light the light
And I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye-bye

Bye Bye Blackbird
 
 

Pack up all my care and woe
Here I go feelin' low
Bye bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is he
Bye bye blackbird

No one here can love or understand me
Oh what hard luck stories they all hand me

Make my bed and light the light
I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye

Make my bed and light the light
I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by Mort Dixon.
Recorded by Eddie Cantor.
