Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's home from work we go
(Whistle 4 counts...) Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho
Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's home from work we go
(Whistle 4 counts...), four ladies chain
Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, you chain them back you know
Keep this girl and promenade, all the way you go
Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's home from work we go
Whistle 4 counts..., heads square thru 4


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig, in a mine the whole day through
Go right & left thru the outside two and turn a little girl you do
Touch 1/4 with the girl you know, split circulate and don't be slow
Boys run to the right and all do the right & left thru
Girls lead do a dixie style to an ocean wave my friend
Boys cross run and the girls trade, swing, promenade and then
*It ain't no trick to get rich quick,
If you dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick
In a mine, in a mine
, heads square thru 4


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*A thousand rubies, sometimes more,
But we don't know what we dig 'em for
In a mine, in a mine
, sides face grand square

Heigh-Ho
 
 

We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig in our mine the whole day through
To dig dig dig dig dig dig dig is what we really like to do
It ain't no trick to get rich quick
If you dig dig dig with a shovel or a pick
In a mine! In a mine! In a mine! In a mine!
Where a million diamonds shine!

We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig from early morn till night
We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig up everything in sight
We dig up diamonds by the score
A thousand rubies, sometimes more
But we don't know what we dig 'em for
We dig dig dig a-dig dig

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
It's home from work we go
(Whistle)

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
It's home from work we go
(Whistle)

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
(Whistle)

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho hum

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
It's home from work we go
(Whistle)

Heigh-ho

Heigh ho, heigh ho
To make your troubles go
Just keep on singing
All day long, heigh ho

Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho
For if you're feeling low
You positively can't go wrong
With a heigh, heigh ho

Heigh ho, heigh ho
It's home from work we go
Heigh ho, heigh ho
Heigh ho, heigh ho
All seven in a row
With a heigh, heigh ho

Composed by Frank Churchill.
Lyrics by Larry Morey.
Recorded by The Seven Dwarfs; Mannheim Steamroller.
