FIGURE C4, corner progression
Headsslide 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
They nursed it, rehearsed it, and sang out the news That (New Orleans*) gave birth to the blues
