Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade that ring
Swing at home, everybody swing
Join hands and circle left, walkin' you bet
Allemande that corner girl, weave that ole set
And can't you see them shufflin' along (whistle)
Swing and promenade on
It's simply great mate, waitin' on the levee
Waitin' for the Robert E. Lee


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Here's where the heads promenade halfway round
Sides star thru, pass thru
You star thru, pass thru, do a partner trade
Load that boat, we've got it made
And can't you see that paddle wheel turn
Swing and promenade 'em you'll learn
It's simply great mate, waitin' on the levee
Waitin' for the Robert E. Lee

Waiting For The Robert E. Lee
 
 

Way down on the levy in old Alabamy
There's Daddy and Mammy
There's Ephraim and Sammy
On a moonlight night you can find them all
While they are waiting,
The banjos are syncopating

What's that they're saying?
What's that they're saying?
While they keep playing
A - humming and swaying
It's the good ship Robert E. Lee that's come to carry the cotton away!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along!
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy,
I said to the levy, and join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

The whistles are blowing, the smokestacks are showing
The ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going
To the place where all is harmonious
Even the preacher, he is the dancing teacher!
Have you been down there? Were you around there?
If you ever go there you'll always be found there,
Why, dog-gone, here comes my baby on the good old Robert E. Lee!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,
And join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

Composed by Lewis F. Muir.
Lyrics by L. Wolfe Gilbert.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland; Dean Martin; many others.
