Cue Sheet

FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you'll promenade
Just 1/2 around the town
Right and left thru, right down thru the middle
And you'll wheel those gals around
Lead to the right, join your hands
Circle 1/2 you do
Dive thru, pass thru
Swing the gal that's facing you
Join your hands, you circle left
You circle that ring
Swing on the corner, swing and you swing
It's all around your left hand lady
See saw round your taw
Take your corners, promenade
Go back to Arkansas
Singing: How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, R-H lady progression

Dosado your corner, See saw your taw
The gents star right, turn that gal across the hall
Put her on your right-join your hands
Circle left and hey
Rollaway with a 1/2 sashay
Swing the gal that's coming your way
The gents star left, a left hand star
It's nice around you go
Take that gal along with the arm around
The ladies rollback, go right & left around that big old ring
Meet your partner, promenade
And everybody sing
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree


SEQUENCE (Figure twice, middle break, figure twice)

How 'Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm Lyrics ID: 469

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
Said his wifey dear
Now that all is peaceful and calm
The boys will soon be back on the farm
Mister Reuben started winking and slowly rubbed his chin
He pulled his chair up close to mother
And he asked her with a grin

Chorus (sung twice after each verse):
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
They'll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'

Rueben, Rueben, you're mistaken
Said his wifey dear
Once a farmer, always a jay
And farmers always stick to the hay
Mother Reuben, I'm not fakin
Though you may think it strange
But wine and women play the mischief
With a boy who's loose with change

Chorus (sung twice after each verse):
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
Imagine Reuben when he meets his Pa
He'll kiss his cheek and holler "OO-LA-LA!"
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'?

Composed by Walter Donaldson.
Lyrics by Joe Young and Sam M. Lewis.
