Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
Put on your old grey bonnet
With the blue ribbons on it
While I hitch old Dobbin to the shay

Allemande left with your corner, dosado with your partner
Men star left once I say
Turn thru with the partner, left allemande your corner
Swing your partner around then promenade
'Cross the fields of clover, we'll go down to Dover
On our golden wedding day


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade go half around with the pretty little maid
2 & 4 (1 & 3) flutter wheel I say
Star thru, pass thru, go right & left thru with the outside two
Dosado and you make a little ocean wave
Recycle when you're through, square thru 3/4 do
Swing your corner lady, promenade
'Cross the fields of clover, we'll go down to Dover
On our golden wedding day

Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet Lyrics ID: 542

On an old farm house veranda there sat Silas and Miranda
Dreamin' of the days gone by
He said deary don't be weary you're always bright and cheery
Now a tear did dim your eye
She said they're not tears of sadness, Silas
They are tears of gladness
It was fifty years ago the day we wed
Then the old man's dim eyes brighten and his old heart it lightens
As he turned to her and said
Put on your old grey bonnet with all the blue ribbons on it
While I hitch old dobbin' to the shay
Through those fields of clover you'll ride up to Dover on our golden wedding day
Put on your old grey bonnet...
Put on your old grey bonnet...
On our golden wedding day

Lyrics by Perci Wenrich and Stanley Murphy.
Recorded by Pee Wee Hunt (1931); Eddie Tompkins (1937).
