OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Here Rattler here, here, here Rattler here
Boys star by the ole right hand once around from there
Pick up partner, arm around, you going to star promenade
Girls step out and backtrack two times I said
Two times around and go left allemande
Come on back a dosado and promeande that land
Here Rattler here, here, here Rattler here
Call Ole Rattler from the barn and here Rattler here


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade go one time around
Sides square thru and go four hands around
Four hands around now and do a right & left thru
Swing thru two by two and boys run you do
Do a half tag trade and roll and the corner swing
Swing that girl around, you're going to promenade that ring
*Once I had a good ole dog and Rattler was his name
Big flop ears and a sad face, but I loved him just the same


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Ole Rattler's gettin' kinda old, I've had him many a year
I better call Ole Rattler from the barn and...


*Ole Rattler was a good old dog, but he just couldn't tree
And every time I'd leave the house he'd tag along with me


*It ain't no use goin' huntin' Jake, Ole Rattler's kinda blind
He'd rather sleep in that darn barn...

Ol' Rattler (Here, Rattler, Here)
 
 

Rattler was a good old dog, blind as he could be
But ev'ry night at suppertime, I believe that dog could see

Here, Here! Here Rattler, Here.
Call Old Rattler from the barn
Here, Rattler, Here!

Grandma had a yellow hen, she set her eggs you know
Set her on some buzzard eggs, she hatched out one old crow.

Here, Here! Here Rattler, Here.
Call Old Rattler from the barn
Here, Rattler, Here!

Grandpa had a muley cow, muley when she was born,
Took a jaybird forty years, to fly from horn to horn

Here, Here! Here Rattler, Here.
Call Old Rattler from the barn
Here, Rattler, Here!

Late one night I heard him howl, I thought he'd treed a coon,
When I went out to see what's up, he was barkin' at the moon!

Here, Here! Here Rattler, Here.
Call Old Rattler from the barn
Here, Rattler, Here!

Now old Rattler's dead and gone, where all good doggies go
You keep playin' the dog yourself, you'll be goin' there too!

Here, Here! Here Rattler, Here.
Call Old Rattler from the barn
Here, Rattler, Here!

Lyrics by Traditional.
Recorded by Mose "Clear Rock" Platt; Grandpa Jones.
