Cue Sheet


Sides face, grand square
Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny how you can love
Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny heavens above
You make my sad heart jump with joy
And when you're near, oh dear

Four ladies chain across the ring
Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, you chain 'em back
Turn a little girl and promenade
He's not handsome it's true, but when I look at you
I sing Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny Oh

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads right & left thru and turn 'em, then a half square thru
Two hands and now, swing thru with these two
Boys trade, boys run
Bend the line and a right & left thru, turn a little girl, a keep in time
Flutter wheel across, and when you do
Reverse the flutter wheel, then promenade
He's not handsome it's true, but when I look at you
I sing Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny Oh

FIGURE (elementary Basic - no partner progression)   

Head couples pass thru and then separate go around two
Meet back home, dosado your own you do
Side two pass thru, separate
Go around two people, meet back home again and do a
Dosado your partner, back-to-back and now
Everybody swing with your girl and promenade
He's not handsome it's true, but when I look at you
I sing Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny Oh

Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!

Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
How you can love!
Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
Heavens above!
You make my sad heart jump with joy,
And when you're near I just
Can't sit still a minute.
I'm so, Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
Please tell me dear.
What makes me love you so?
You're not handsome, it's true,
But whan I look at you,
I just, Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny! Oh!

Lyrics by Abe Olman and Ed Rose.
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald.
