Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four little ladies chain, straight across the ring
Join hands circle left walk around the ring
Ladies center, men sashay, circle left
Ladies center, men sashay, circle left
Allemande left and weave around the ring
Go in and out, until you meet again
Swing with your gal, and promenade the ring
There's gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Walk in and square thru four hands around
Go all the way and do the right & left thru
Come on and pass thru, trade by, star thru and go
Square thru and roll it 3/4 round
Swing the corner lady promenade 'em down
My good friends, let's all shout and cheer
There's gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
One cold night when we were all in bed
Old aunt Sadie took a lantern to the shed
The old cow kicked it and she winked her eye and said
There's gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight

Circle left
My good friends, I'm so glad you could be here
Left allemande and promenade her home
My good friends, let's all shout and cheer
There's gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight

Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight Lyrics ID: 385

Come along, get you ready Wear your bran', bran' new gown
For there's gwine to be a meeting In that good, good old town
Where you knowded everybody And they all knowded you
And you've got a rabbit's foot To keep away de hoo-doo.

When you hear that the preaching does begin
Bend down low for to drive away your sin
And when you gets religion, you want to shout and sing
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

CHORUS:
When you hear dem a bells go ding ling ling
All join 'round and sweetly you must sing
And when the verse am through in the chorus all join in
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.

There'll be girls for ev'ry body: In that good, good old town,
For there's Miss Consola Davis And there's Miss Gondolia Brown
And there's Miss Johanna Beasly She am dressed all in red,
I just hugged her and I kissed her And to me then she said:

Please oh please, oh do not let me fall,
You're all mine and I love you best of all,
And you must be my man, or I'll have no man at all,
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

Composed by Theodore Metz.
Lyrics by Joe Hayden.
Recorded by Bessie Smith (1927).
