Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*There were three old gypsies came to our door
They came brave and boldly-o
And one sang high and the other sang low
And the other sang a raggle taggle

Allemande left and weave
**It was upstairs downstairs the lady went
Put on her suit of leather-o
And there was a cry from around the door
She's away wi' the raggle taggle gypsy-o


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*It was late that night when the lord came in
Enquiring for his lady-o
And the servant girl - she said to the lord
She's away wi' the raggle taggle

...
**Then saddle for me my milk white steed
My big horse is not speedy-o
And I will ride till I seek my bride
She's away wi' the raggle taggle gypsy-o


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Now, he rode east, and he rode west
He rode north and south also
Until he came to a wide open place
It was there that he spied

...
**Well, how could you leave your house and your land?
How could you leave your money-o?
How could you leave your only wedded lord
All for a raggle taggle gypsy-o


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru, come on, 4 hands around the ring you go
Go all the way around the ring you know
Single circle make your wave, boys trade
Boys run, ferris wheel
Centers pass thru, touch 1/4 go
Roll to face, swing the corner girl, promenade
And one sang high and the other sang low
And the other sang a raggle taggle gypsy-o


TAG

All for a raggle taggle gypsy-o
Let's bow to the partner, and the corner too
