Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left your corner, go forward 3 you know
Go right, left, right, then turn back 1 & allemande left &
Go forward 3 once again, go right, left, right, my friend
Then turn back one, left allemande and weave around the land
Go in and out around until you meet your lady fair
Dosado your partner and promenade the square
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
Let's swing her in ol' Shantytown


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All 4 ladies chain, 3/4 'round you go
And 1 & 3 (2 & 4) lead to the right & circle 4 you know
Yes, you circle to a line, go up and back in time
You do a right & left thru, turn the girl and slide thru
Dosado, go once around, now swing thru and then
Boys trade, girls turn back and promenade the land
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
Let's swing her in ol' Shantytown


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Basic

4 ladies chain, go across the ring
Join your hands and circle left I sing
Ladies center, the men sashay
Circle left till you hear me say
Ladies center, the men sashay
Left allemande, weave the ring
Go in and out around until you meet your lady fair
Dosado your partner and promenade the square
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
Let's swing her in ol' Shantytown


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)

Heads promenade 3/4 round
Sides will do a right and left thru
Pass thru and circle 4, 1/2 way round and 1/4 more
Go right and left thru, turn the girl and then cross trail
Allemande left that corner maid, walk by the one you know
Swing the right hand lady once & promenade her home
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
Let's swing her in ol' Shantytown

In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town
 
 

I'm up in the world,
But I'd give the world to be where I used to be,
A heavenly nest,
Where I rest the best,
Means more than the world to me.

It's only a shanty
In old Shanty Town
The roof is so slanty it touches the ground.
But my tumbled down shack by an old railroad track,
Like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back.

I'd give up a palace if I were a king.
It's more than a palace, it's my everything.
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
In a shanty in old Shanty Town.

Lyrics by Joe Young, Little Jack Little, and John Siras.
