Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Workin' on a railroad, for a dollar a day
Walk around your corner, see saw your own
Allemande left, weave the ring
Workin' on a railroad
Swing and promenade her
Gotta have my money, boy gotta have my pay


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, round the corner dosado
Swing thru, spin the top
Slide thru, right & left thru
Pass to the center, center square thru 3
Swing corner, promenade
Tell him I'm gone, Buddy, you can tell him I'm gone

Take This Hammer
 
 

Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Tell him I'm gone
Tell him I'm gone

If he asks you was I runnin'
If he asks you was I runnin'
If he asks you was I runnin'
Tell him I was flyin'
Tell him I was flyin'

If he asks you was I laughin'
If he asks you was I laughin'
If he asks you was I laughin'
Tell him I was cryin'
Tell him I was cryin'

They want to feed me cornbread and molasses
They want to feed me cornbread and molasses
They want to feed me cornbread and molasses
But I got my pride
Well, I got my pride

Lyrics by traditional.
Recorded by Lead Belly; many others.
