Allemande left your corner, do a daisy chain
Go forward two, right and left, turn back one and then
Old Aunt Jemina, she's past eighty three
Shoutin' out so full of pep, watch your step, watch your step
*One legged Joe hoppin' round on his toe
*Throws away his crutches and hollers
For it's hail, hail the gang's all here
At the Alabama Jubilee


*Old Parson Brown jumpin' round like a clown
*Waves his parson's collar
, promenade around

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Allemande your corner, turn a right around your own
Four ladies promenade once around you roam
Partner box the gnat, four men promenade
One time around, dosado now with your maid
Corner lady swing, round and round
Left allemande new corner, promenade around
For it's hail, hail the gang's all here
At the Alabama Jubilee

Alabama Jubilee

Mandolins, violins
Hear the darkies tunin' up, the fun begins
Come this way, don't delay
Better hurry, honey dear, or you'll be missin'
Music sweet, ragtime treat
Goes right to your head and trickles to your feet
It's a reminder, a memory finder
Of nights down in old Alabam'

Hear that flute, it's a beaut'
And the tunes it's tootin', Tootsie, ain't they cute?
Let's begin, it's a sin
To be missin' all this syncopated music!
Oh, you Jane, once again
Give your legs some exercise to that refrain
Boy, that's what makes me so dreamy and takes me
Back home to my old Alabam'


You ought to see Deacon Jones when he rattles the bones
Old Parson Brown foolin' 'round like a clown
Aunt Jemima, who is past eighty-three
Shouting "I'm full of pep!
Watch yo' step, watch yo' step!"
One-legged Joe danced around on his toe
Threw away his crutch and hollered
"Let her go!"

Oh, honey hail, hail, the gang's all here
For an Alabama Jubilee

Composed by George Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by Collins & Harlan; Skillet Lickers; Red Foley; Chet Atkins; many others.
