Cue Sheet side A

OPENER    Basic

Oh you honor to your partners, and to your corners all
All join hands and circle, to the left around the hall
Reverse back, go single file, when you're home you swing a while
Swing that mountain gal and watch her smile


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Oh, the head couples ladies chain, side couples swing
Chain 'em around the mountain, chain 'em home
Oh, the side couples ladies chain, head couples swing again
Chain 'em around the mountain, chain 'em home
Now you allemande left your corner, pass on by your partner
Swing that little lady on your right
Now promenade that lady fair, all the way back home from there
Promenade the mountain, promenade


BREAK    Basic

Then you allemande left that corner, and a grand ol' right & left
When you meet your partner, just promenade the set
Don't you worry, don't you fret, judgment day ain't comin' yet
Promenade the mountain, promenade

(Repeat FIGURE and BREAK three times)


CLOSER    Basic

Now honor to your partner, and to your corners all
Now your right hand lady, then the one across the hall
Dosado your corners all, go back home and swing with ma
Swing your mountain gal and thank you, gents...that's all!

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER    Basic

Let's all join hands and circle to the left
Break that ring and swing, with the girl you love the best
Then you promenade back home, with the cutest gal in sight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Oh, the first couple right, and circle four hands round
Pick up two more, and circle six hands round
Pick up two more and circle eight hands round
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight


BREAK   

It's the allemande left with the lady on your left (Hey!)
Allemande right with the lady on your right (Hey!)
Allemande left with the lady on your left (Hey!)
Then a grand ol' right and left, go round the ring
When you meet your honey, you dosado around
Take her in your arms and swing her off the ground
Promenade back home, with the sweetest gal in sight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight

(Repeat FIGURE and BREAK three times with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th couple leading out)


CLOSER    Basic

Now you all join hands and stretch the ring way out
Rush in to the center and everybody shout
Back right out and swing, with the cutest gal in sight
There's been a hot time in the old town tonight

She'll Be Coming Around The Mountain
 
 

She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain, she'll be coming round the mountain,
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses, she'll be driving six white horses,
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her, we'll all go out to meet her,
We'll all go out to meet her when she comes

We will kill the old red rooster when she comes
We will kill the old red rooster when she comes
We will kill the old red rooster, we will kill the old red rooster,
We will kill the old red rooster when she comes

Oh, we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
Oh, we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
Oh, we'll all have chicken and dumplings, we'll all have chicken and dumplings,
Oh, we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes

She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes
She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes
She'll be wearing red pajamas, she'll be wearing red pajamas,
She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes

She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma, she will have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes

Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight
 
 

Come along, get you ready Wear your bran', bran' new gown
For there's gwine to be a meeting In that good, good old town
Where you knowded everybody And they all knowded you
And you've got a rabbit's foot To keep away de hoo-doo.

When you hear that the preaching does begin
Bend down low for to drive away your sin
And when you gets religion, you want to shout and sing
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

CHORUS:
When you hear dem a bells go ding ling ling
All join 'round and sweetly you must sing
And when the verse am through in the chorus all join in
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.

There'll be girls for ev'ry body: In that good, good old town,
For there's Miss Consola Davis And there's Miss Gondolia Brown
And there's Miss Johanna Beasly She am dressed all in red,
I just hugged her and I kissed her And to me then she said:

Please oh please, oh do not let me fall,
You're all mine and I love you best of all,
And you must be my man, or I'll have no man at all,
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

Composed by Theodore Metz.
Lyrics by Joe Hayden.
Recorded by Bessie Smith (1927).
