Circle left *They heard the breeze in the trees Singing weird melodies Men star rightone 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
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
*From a whippoorwill, high up on a hill They took a new note
