Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Allemande your corners, go right & go left
Turn back one, box the gnat with your pet
Dosado, the ladies promenade the town
Get back home and dosado go all the way round
Allemande left, do a right & left grand
Hand over hand, you travel round the land
Turn right back, go the wrong direction
And when you're home you box the gnat

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Swing your partners, then couples 1 & 3
Right & left thru and turn her there for me
Heads 1/2 square thru, face the sides, eight chain thru
While you square dance you just can't feel blue
While you're gone, sugar candy

Promenade her it's fine and dandy
To dance the blues away with you

Cue Sheet side B


Allemande left your corners, then partners box the gnat
Box it back, gents star left 3/4 round the track
Turn your corner right hand, your partner left and then
4 little ladies star by the right 3/4 round the ring
Allemande left with your left hand, and a grand ol' right & left
Meet your partner over there, and promenade the set
That old accordion's playing a sentimental tune
Cruisin' down the river on a Sunday afternoon


Heads go forward up and back then California twirl
Separate, go halfway round and when you meet your girl
Come down the middle, 1/2 square thru, your corners dosado
All the way round to an ocean wave, then balance to and fro
Right & left thru, turn 'em boys, cross trail thru, u-turn back
Swing the opposite lady there, and promenade her back
Go strollin' with your honey around that big ol' room
Like cruisin' down the river on a Sunday afternoon

Cruising Down The River Lyrics ID: 723

Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon
With one you love, the sun above, waiting for the moon
The old accordian playing a sentimental tune
Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon

The birds above all sing of love, a gentle sweet refrain
The winds around all make a sound like softly falling rain
Just two of us together, we'll plan a honeymoon
Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon

Lyrics by Eily Beadell and Nell Tollerton.
Recorded by Blue Barron & His Orchestra.
