Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    A1, unknown progression

Head couples separate, go round the land
While 2 and 4 trail thru and there you be
Allemande that corner, Swing your partner,
honey, can't you see (you'd better)
Star promenade along with me (and show your
Good intentions, - Good intentions

Back up and chain the ladies, chain tonight (and let 'em)
Star back home, to swing your own (pretty baby)
Come swing that gal and treat her right


Walk all around the corner, everybody make a
Left hand star and here we go all the men reach back and
Box the gnat and do a dosado (pretty baby)
Then circle 8 right after that (and show your)
Good intentions - Good intentions

Swing your partner, Don't you fuss and fight (and then you)
Promenade home She wants to be your own (pretty baby)
And you're available tonight


This music is in a syncopated type of rhythm and requires somewhat different phrasing than usual. Each of the above cue lines fits an 8-beat phrase in the music. The hyphen (-) in front of each line indicates a very brief pause between
the first downbeat of the music and upbeat on which the call starts. The words enclosed in brackets () at the end of most lines are used as "tail-out" words in each 8-beat phrase, rather then the usual "pick-up" words that frequently
occur at the start of phrases in most singing square dances. A little practice with this number should qualify you to do a good job with it.)
Cue Sheet side B


Bow to your partner, ladies chain across the ring
Join hands and circle to the left and once again
4 ladies grand chain, just to get across the set
Walk around your corner, come on back and swing your pet
And while the bells keep ringing allemande the corners all
Grand ol' right & left as you go walkin' round the hall
Promenade 'em when you meet your turtle dove
While the bells ring out with happy love


Head gents take the corner, forward up and back again
Star by the right and turn it once around the ring
Turn partners by the left, go to the corner, box the gnat
Gents star left and swing the girl across the track
And let the bells ring out, while you swing and dance with joy
Allemande left the corner, promenade each girl and boy
Go walkin' round the ring, then swing 'neath stars above
While the bells ring out with happy love
