Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky
Left allemande the corner, box the gnat at home
4 ladies star by the left, go round that old track
Box the gnat, go right & left grand, meet that girl
Swing awhile and then promenade home
Because I ain't had no lovin' since..
January, February, June or July


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) box the gnat & then you square thru 4
Sides you rollaway
Touch 1/4 then, scoot back, go girl
When you're thru, do a walk & dodge, partner trade
Reverse the flutter wheel, go a little bit more
Keep that girl, promenade her home
Because I ain't had no lovin' since..
January, February, June or July


MIDDLE BREAK   

4 ladies promenade, get back home
Swing awhile with this man
With the ladies back to back, boys promenade outside
Go all the way around, same girl, do a grand yellow rock
Left allemande, come back, swing awhile & promenade
Because I ain't had no lovin' since..
January, February, June or July

Shine On Harvest Moon
 
 

The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see
For the moon refused to shine
Couple sitting underneath a willow tree
For love they did pine
Little maid was kinds 'fraid of darkness
So she said, "I guess I'll go."
Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky,
Told the moon his little tale of woe:
"Oh, shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June or July
Snowtime ain't no time to stay outdoors and spoon
So shine on, shine on harvest moon - for me and my gal!"

I can't see why a boy should sigh
When by his side is the girl he loves so true
Aall he has to say is:
"Won't you be my bride,
For I love you,
Why should I be telling you this secret,
When I know that you can guess?,"
Harvest moon will smile
Shine on all the while
If the little girl should answer "yes."

"Oh, shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June or July
Snowtime ain't no time to stay outdoors and spoon
So shine on, shine on harvest moon - for me and my gal!"

Composed by Nora Bayes-Norworth.
Lyrics by Jack Norworth.
