Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Won't you come along with me
Way down the Mississippi

Left allemande and dosado your own
Allemande left the corner and weave that ring, you roam
Weave it in and weave it out until you meet your maid
Swing your girl and all promenade
Promenade this lady, to the land of dreams
*Down the Mississippi, they call it New Orleans


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Floatin' down the river, down to New Orleans

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade, go halfway
Down the middle and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel and then sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and touch 1/4, that's for sure
Scoot back and then, scoot back again
Swing your girl and promenade her
Promenade this lady, to the land of dreams
Down the Mississippi, they call it New Orleans


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade, go halfway
Down the middle and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel and then sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and do the right & left thru, turn her
Touch 1/4 and split circulate two times
Swing your girl and promenade her
Promenade this lady, to the land of dreams
Down the Mississippi, they call it New Orleans


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Now won't you come along with me
Down the Mississippi
We'll take a trip to the land of dreams
Floatin' down the river, down to New Orleans

Four ladies promenade, once around you go
Get back home and swing, swing and promenade
Promenade this lady to the land of dreams
Down the Mississippi, they call it New Orleans


TAG

Hey, walk around your corner, swing your partner
(Talk fast) I got them Basin Street Blues

Basin Street Blues Lyrics ID: 373

Won't you come and go with me
Down that Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Come along with me on, down to New Orleans

Now the band's there to greet us
Old friends will meet us
Where all them folks goin' to the St. Louis Cemetery meet
Heaven on earth... they call it Basin Street

I'm tellin' ya, Basin Street... is the street
Where all them characters from the First street they meet
New Orleans... land of dreams
You'll never miss them rice and beans
Way down south in New Orleans

They'll be huggin'... and a kissin'
That's what I been missin'
And all that music...lord, if you just listen'
New Orleans...I got them Basin Street Blues

Now ain't you glad you went with me
On down that Mississippi
We took a boat to the land of dreams
Heaven on earth...they call it Basin Street

Lyrics by Spencer Williams.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong (1928).
