Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around the left hand lady, see saw your taw
Join hands and circle left go walkin' round that hall
Whirl your girl with a half sashay, circle left again
Whirl the girls with a half sashay, circle to the left now hear me say
Do an allemande left with an allemande thar, go right & left & star
Put the men in the middle you've got a star, back up but not too far
Shoot the star and dosado, same lady promeno
You're gonna promenade her, serenade her, sweet Georgia Brown


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads star right in the middle of the land, it's once around you know
To the corner girl with a left hand star, turn it don't be slow
Heads star right in the middle of the land, turn it to your corner man
Allemande with the old left hand, partner right in a right & left grand
Go right & lef you know, when you meet partner do a dosado
Your corner swing and whirl go round and round you know
You swing twice, promenade go round the ring
Take a walk with the pretty little thing
Get back home and celebrate with sweet Georgia Brown

Sweet Georgia Brown
 
 

She just got here yesterday
Things are hot here, now they say
There's a big change in town
Gals are jealous, there's no doubt
Still the fellows rave about
Sweet, sweet Georgia Brown
And ever since she came the colored folks all claim, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she coos 'em down
Fellers she can't get are fellers she ain't met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her
Sweet Georgia Brown

Brownskin gals you'll get the blues
Brownskin pals you'll surely lose
And there's but one excuse
Now I've told you who she was
And I've told you what she does
Hand this gal her dues
This color'd maiden's pray'r is answer'd anywhere, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

All those tips the porter slips to sweet Georgia Brown
They buy clothes at fashion shows with one dollar down
Oh boy, tips your hats, oh joy, she's the "Cat's"
Who's that mister? T'ain't her sister! Sweet Georgia Brown

Composed by Maceo Pinkard.
Lyrics by Kenneth Casey.
Recorded by Ben Bernie; Brother Bones And His Shadows; Django Reinhardt; many others.
