Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies promenade one time around that ring
Gonna get back home and you swing there with your own
Join up all your hands and you circle left and then
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring
(Yodel)
Swing the girl and now you promenade
(Yodel)
Well, we're climbing them golden stairs


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) two, you promenade halfway around that ring
Side pair you do the right & left thru
You'll square thru to four, four hands around and then
Dosado this corner, eight chain four
(Yodel)
Swing the corner now, you promenade
(Yodel)
Well we're climbing them golden stairs

Climbing Up De Golden Stairs
 
 

Come, all you little darkies
Now watch your kickin' parties
Climbing up de golden stairs
If they think you are a dude
They will treat you rather rude
Climbing up de golden stairs
Ole Peter looked so wicked
When I ask'd him for a ticket
Climbing up de golden stairs
At the sight of half a dollar
He will grab you by the collar
And fire you up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Old Satan's not the dandy
To feed you on mix'd candy
Climbing up de golden stairs
But he'll give you brimstone hot
And he'll choke you on de spot
Climbing up de golden stairs
They'll lock you in the stable
Make you fight for Cain and Abel
Climbing up de golden stairs
Old man Adam and his wife
Will be there with drum and fife
And march you up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Go tell the Jersey Lily
The sights would knock her silly
Climbing up de golden stairs
And tell John L. Sullivan
He must be a better man
If he'd climb de golden stairs
Bob Ingersoll's respected
But is bound to be rejected
Climbing up de golden stairs
Oh, you bet he'll kick and yell
When they fire him into...well
Climbing up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Then hear them bells a-ringing!
'Tis sweet, I do declare
Oh, hear them darkies singing
Climbing up de golden stairs

Composed by F. Heiser.
Lyrics by F. Heiser.
