Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Turn your corner by the left, your partner right
And then the gents star left around
Turn your own with the right elbow, once and a half around you go
Now those gals left hand star, don't get suck on a bar
Star promenade, grab right on to your boy
And when you are home, roll them out*, ship ahoy
Then go swingin' down the old green river
On that good ship "Rock and Rye"


FIGURE    C4, unknown progression

Head ladies wheel chain round now, turn 'em boys
Then chain 'em right, let's hold 'em tight
Now chain 'em on don't you roam, turn 'em alone
Do a left allemande, then walk by your own
Now swing the next one, she'll travel with you
Then promenade with that lady in blue
Then go sailing down that old green river
On that good ship "Rock and Rye"


TAG

On the good ship "Rock and Rye"

*NOTE: When you are at home position the lady rolls to the outside (half sashay) then partners swing (this is a long swing - some may prefer to roll to arm's lenth, balance, then swing).

I've Been Floating Down The Old Green River
 
 

Half past four, Dan McGraw, came sneaking to his wifey's door.
She'd been waiting up all night, waiting for him to go to bed.
Danny smiled, like a child, but his wifey grew very wild
Where have you been all night long?, she cried
And this is what Danny replied:

Chorus:
I've been floating down the old green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye.
But I floated too far, I got stuck on a bar,
I was out there alone, wishing that I was home.

The ship got wrecked with the captain and crew,
And there was only one thing left to do,
So I had to drink the whole green river
Dry to get back home to you.

(Repeat chorus)

Composed by Joe Cooper.
Lyrics by Bert Kalmar.
Recorded by Firehouse Five Plus Two; Castle Jazz Band.
