Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
They heard the breeze in the trees singing weird melodies
And they called that the start of the blues

You'll walk around your corner, then
See saw round your own
Men star right now, in the middle you do
Left allemande your corner, then do a right & left grand
When you meet your partner, promenade hand in hand
They nursed it, rehearsed it, and sang out the news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads slide thru, then partner trade you do
Sashay thru with the outside two, and wheel & deal
You'll dive thru and square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing your corner around the world
Left allemande new corner, then weave around that ring
Hands in the air and you'll promenade and sing
They nursed it, rehearsed it, and sang out the news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues


TAG

They nursed it, rehearsed it, and sang out the news
That (New Orleans*) gave birth to the blues


(*Substitute any city name you like.)

The Birth Of The Blues Lyrics ID: 1741

Oh they say some people long ago
Were searching for a different tune
One that they could croon as only they can

They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that the start of the blues

And from a jail came the wail
Of a down-hearted frail
And they played that as part of the blues

From a whippoorwill out on a hill
They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn till it was worn into a blue note

And then they nursed it, rehearsed it
And gave out the news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown.
Recorded by Cab Calloway; Frank Sinatra.
