Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Everybody swing your honey, swing her high and low
Now allemande left with the old left hand
And around the ring you go
A grand old right and left, walk on your heel and toe
Now when you meet your honey, promenade her home
Lay that pistol down, babe, lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama, lay that pistol down


FIGURE   

1st and 3rd take a little whirl, forward to and fro
Forward again and pass right thru and swing her before you go
Separate, go around, go around the outside ring
When you meet your partner, it's everybody swing
Allemande left with your corner girl, sashay round your own
Go back and swing that corner girl and promenade her home
Lay that pistol down, babe, lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama, lay that pistol down

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER    Basic

It's allemande left with the lady on the left
It's a grand right & left all the way around
When you meet your own, promenade her home
You promenade that gay cavalero


FIGURE   

It's first couple divide and circle three hands around
Now swing with that opposite girlie
And after you have swung, go back where you begun
Now swing with that gay cavalero
It's on to the next and circle four hand round
Now swing with the opposite girlie
Then after you have swung go back to where you begun
And swing with your own senorita
And there they divide and circle three hands round
Now swing with that opposite lady
After you have swung, go back where you begun
Everybody swing their Spanish cavalero

(Repeat OPENER and FIGURE for 2, 3, 4th couple.)

Pistol Packing Mama
 
 

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, drinking beer in a cabaret
Was I having fun
Until one night she caught me right
And now I'm on the run

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, she kicked out my windshield
And she hit me over the head
She cussed and cried and said I lied
And she wished that I was dead

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, drinking beer in a cabaret
And dancin' with a blond
Until one night she shot out the light
Bang! that blond was gone

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, I'll sing you every night, babe
And I'll woo you every day
I'll be your regular daddy
If you'll put that gun away

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Now I went home this morning
The clock was tickin' four
Gun in her hand, says "You're my man,
But I don't need you no more."

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Now there was old Al Dexter
He always had his fun
But with some lead, she shot him dead
His honkin' days are done.

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Lyrics by Al Dexter.
Recorded by Al Dexter; Bing Crosby; Hoyt Axton; others.

Spanish Cavalier
 
 

A Spanish cavalier stood in his retreat
And on his guitar played a tune, dear
The music so sweet they would oft times repeat
The blessings of my country and you, dear

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear

I'm off to the war, to the war I must go
To fight for my country and you, dear
But if I should fall in vain I would call
The blessings of my country and you, dear

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear

When the war is over to you I'll return
Back to my country and you, dear
But if I am slain you may seek me in vain
Upon the battlefield you will find me

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear

Lyrics by William D. Hendrickson.
Recorded by The Sons Of The Pioneers; many others.
