Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Left allemande, come back and box the gnat now
Weave the wrong way round the ring you'll go
Meet your partner, box the gnat, dosado right after that
Go full around and then you weave the ring
*Weave in and out around, till you meet that girl you know
Dosado your honey, and then you promeno
Promenade that lady and sing this old refrain
Hop aboard and ride that good ole gravy train


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round and now the
Sides do a half square thru, make an ocean wave
Swing thru, go down the track, boys trade then box the gnat
Pull by and allemande left, and weave the ring
The gravy train is rolling and running down the track
Dosado and then, promenade 'em right on back
Is everybody waiting just to make that big old gain
Are we waiting just to ride that gravy train?


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*At Alcatraz in waiting there was a guy named Al
He said dosado your moll and promenade her pal
He left us there a-standing in the San Francisco rain
And he hopped aboard the last ole gravy train

*A little man I know, he says he's called Joe

He said to dosado and promenade that way
He says manana he is going to get out of the rain
I think Jose is looking for a gravy train

*Another little guy I know, he tells me "si, senor"

He says dosado and promenade while he does snore
All he does is sleep, he hasn't worked an hour this week
Pancho waits there for that gravy train

*I had a square dance friend, he wouldn't join you know

He said dosado and promenade and leave the work to Joe
That nice big club has folded while he sand this old refrain
All he wanted was to ride that gravy train
