Jack O'Leary
Cue Sheet


Sides face, grand square
Hair of gold eyes of blue, prettiest girl I ever knew
Skin as white as precious pearl, she was my Tipperary girl
She just chanced to pass me by, pretty as a peach in a pumpkin pie
She could dance she could swing, like a newborn lamb in spring

All four ladies promenade once around that ring I say
Swing that man when you get there, promenade around the square
Now young and foolish, old and wise, enter love with open eyes
Treat her right from the start, Tipperary girls will break your heart


I was courting pure romance, I asked her if she'd like to dance
Smiled at me and took my hand, swung me 'til I couldn't stand
I fell heads and over heels, heart was thumping jigs and reels
Twiched and twittered, ill at ease, like a hound dog scratching fleas

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade let's go, halfway around you know
Square thru in the middle you see, four hands around with me
All the way around you do, swing thru with outside two
Boys run right and then couples circulate my friend
Ladies chain down the line, keep her, promenade so fine
Promenade get around that ring, take that lady back home again
Now young and foolish, old and wise, enter love with open eyes
Treat her right from the start, Tipperary girls will break your heart


Up and down, to and fro
Round and round and round we go
