Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
There was a man of New Orleans and he could rock & roll
He's a guitar man with a great big soul
He lays down a beat like a ton of coal
He goes by the name...

Allemande left and weave the ring
Well, he's gone, gone, gone
He's jumping like a catfish on a pole

Swing that girl and promenade, you know
Well, he's gone, gone, gone
Well, he's hip shakin' King Creole


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Those heads (sides) promenade and take it half way around
Walk in and square thru, count 4 hands around
Go all the way and then, do a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, star thru and then
Square thru my friend, 3 hands around the ring
Swing that corner, promenade I sing
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Well, he's hip shakin' King Creole


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
When the king starts to do it, it's as good as done
He holds his guitar like a tommy gun
He starts to growl from way down in his throat
He bends a string and that's all she wrote

Four boys promenade the ring one time, you know
Swing that girl and promenade her home
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Well, he's hip shakin' King Creole


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about a pork and greens
He sings some blues about New Orleans

Four ladies promenade inside, one time around
Swing that girl, you all promenade
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Well, he's hip shakin' King Creole


TAG

Allemande left and swing your own
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Well, he's hip shakin' King Creole

King Creole Lyrics ID: 2535

There's a man in New Orleans who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man with a great big soul
And he lays down a beat like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole, yeah
You know he's gone, gone, gone
And hip shaking King Creole

When the King starts to do it it's as good as done
He holds his guitar like a tommy gun
He starts to growl from way down in his throat
He bends a string and that's all she wrote

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
And hip shaking King Creole

He sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about pork and greens
He sings some blues about New Orleans

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole, yeah
You know he's gone, gone, gone
And hip shaking King Creole

He plays something evil then he plays something sweet
No matter how he plays you got to get up on your feet
And when he gets the rockin' fever baby, heaven sakes
He don't stop playin' 'til his guitar breaks

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole, yeah
You know he's gone, gone, gone
And hip shaking King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole

Lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
Recorded by Elvis Presley.
