Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner, see saw your taw
Join hands and circle the hall
Now gents star by the right and roll the star around the land
It's a left allemande, come on and weave around that ring
And can't you see them shufflin' along
Swing a little while and ya promenade on home
It's simply great - mate - waitin' on the levy
Waitin' for the Robert E. Lee


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the heads (sides) you promenade get half way around there
Heads (sides) come down and square thru in the middle dance 'em four
It's a right hand star like a paddle wheel, kickin' up a spray
Heads (Sides) star left in the middle and roll it round that way
To the same two and do a right and left thru
Dive thru and pass thru and the corner swing
Well you promenade a new maiden, gonna do a little serenadin'
Waitin' for the Robert E. Lee

Waiting For The Robert E. Lee
 
 

Way down on the levy in old Alabamy
There's Daddy and Mammy
There's Ephraim and Sammy
On a moonlight night you can find them all
While they are waiting,
The banjos are syncopating

What's that they're saying?
What's that they're saying?
While they keep playing
A - humming and swaying
It's the good ship Robert E. Lee that's come to carry the cotton away!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along!
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy,
I said to the levy, and join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

The whistles are blowing, the smokestacks are showing
The ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going
To the place where all is harmonious
Even the preacher, he is the dancing teacher!
Have you been down there? Were you around there?
If you ever go there you'll always be found there,
Why, dog-gone, here comes my baby on the good old Robert E. Lee!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,
And join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

Composed by Lewis F. Muir.
Lyrics by L. Wolfe Gilbert.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland; Dean Martin; many others.
