Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
*They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies

Men star right one time around tonight
Left allemande, now you weave that ring
They nursed it, then they rehearsed it
Swing that girl, promenade
Then they called it the sound of the blues


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Down the middle, square thru 4
Go all the way, swing thru I say
Boys run right, couples circulate one notch
Chain down the line, square thru 3
Swing that corner, promenade that ring
Then the southland gave birth to the blues


CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time around
Get home and swing with that man
Join hands, circle to the left you go
Left allemande, now you weave that ring
They nursed it, then they rehearsed it
Swing that girl, promenade that ring
Then they called it the sound of the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

They took a new note

The Birth Of The Blues Lyrics ID: 1741

Oh they say some people long ago
Were searching for a different tune
One that they could croon as only they can

They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that the start of the blues

And from a jail came the wail
Of a down-hearted frail
And they played that as part of the blues

From a whippoorwill out on a hill
They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn till it was worn into a blue note

And then they nursed it, rehearsed it
And gave out the news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown.
Recorded by Cab Calloway; Frank Sinatra.
