Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, unknown progression

Walk all around your left hand lady
See saw round your taw
Join your hands and circle to the left
Go walkin' round the hall
Whirl away 1/2 sashay and
Circle to the left again
Whirl away 1/2 sashay
Circle to the left and hear me say
Allemande left and allemande thar
Go right and left and star
With the men in the middle you've got a star
Back up but not too far
Shoot the star and dosado
Promenade and home you go
Promenade and serenade with Sweet Georgia Brown


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

The heads star right in the middle of the land
It's one full turn you know
To the corner pair a left hand star
You turn it don't be slow
Heads star right in the middle of the land
Turn it to your corner again
You do an allemande left with the old left hand
Partner right go right and left grand
It's right and left around you go
When you meet her do a dosado
With the corner girl you swing and whirl
It's twice around you go
You swing that gal around
Twirl, promenade the town
When you get back home you balance out 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.
