Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Left allemande & a grand old right & left around the town
When you meet your partner turn by the right hand half
Back by the left to the corner,
Back to the partner with a right and the corner with a left
4 ladies star across, men, turn 'em there
Your corner swing and promenade home with
Me and my shadow strolling down the avenue


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) couples rollaway and pass thru, u-turn back, star thru
Circle 1/2 and then pass thru, star thru
Rollaway and pass thru, u-turn back, star thru
Circle 4 go 1/2 round the floor, dive thru and 2 ladies chain
Zoom, flutter wheel
Pass thru, swing, and promenade home with
Me and my shadow strolling down the avenue


TAG

Me and my shadow
Walkin' home at midnight, swingin' in the moonlight
Strolling down the avenue


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4, dosado
Swing thru, boys run, bend the line
Reverse flutter wheel, star thru
Swing and promenade
Me and my shadow strolling down the avenue

Me And My Shadow Lyrics ID: 939

Me and my shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Oh, me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to

And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs
We never knock 'cause nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue

(Instrumental Break)

And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs
We never knock 'cause nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue

(Sinatra/Davis version:)
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
You'll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.

Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that flow in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog to all of L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

And when it's sleeping time
That's when we rise
We start to swing
Our clocks don't chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!

Me and my shadow
And now to repeat what I said at the start
They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We're alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more
We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's Shore
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
For my shadow and me!

And while we are swinging, to mention a few
We'll drop in at Danny's, The Little Club too
But wind up at Jilly's, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
Wow!
For my shadow and me!

Composed by Dave Dreyer and Al Jolson.
Lyrics by Billy Rose.
Recorded by "Whispering" Jack Smith; Perry Como; Frank Sinatra; Sammy Davis, Jr; Dean Martin (1962).
