Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left your corner, then a grand ol' right & left
Hand over hand around the ring, until you meet again
Meet your girl and box the gnat, now weave the wrong way back
Go in and out around, and meet her once again
Gonna box the gnat, and now the men star left go once around
Turn partner right,
Left allemande, and then you promenade
I'm so lonesome, oh, so lonesome, 'cause I love her still
I'll take my honey right on back to Mockingbird Hill


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)   

Side 2 ladies chain across, turn that gal in time
Now the heads pass thru, around 1, make a line
Move up to the middle and back,
Pass thru, wheel & deal
Girls in the middle slide thru, star left, go once around
Same ones turn by the right, go to the corner, swing
New corner allemande, come right back and promenade
*I'm achin', breakin', shakin', 'cause I love her still
I'll promenade my baby back to Mockingbird Hill


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*My heart is achin', shakin', breakin' for Adirondack thrills
I wanta get back to my little home on Mockingbird Hill

Mockingbird Hill Lyrics ID: 2114

When the sun in the morning peeps over the hill
And kisses the roses 'round my windowsill
Then my heart fills with gladness when I hear the trill
Of the birds in the treetops on Mockingbird Hill

Tra-la-la, twiddle-lee-dee-dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird's trill
Tra-la-la, twiddle-lee-dee-dee, there's peace and goodwill
You're welcome as the flowers on Mockingbird Hill

When it's late in the evening I climb up the hill
And survey all my kingdom while everything's still
Only me and the sky and an old whippoorwill
Singing songs in the twilight on Mockingbird Hill

Tra-la-la, twiddle-lee-dee-dee, it gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird's trill
Tra-la-la, twiddle-lee-dee-dee, there's peace and goodwill
You're welcome as the flowers on Mockingbird Hill

Lyrics by Vaughn Horton.
Recorded by Les Paul and Mary Ford; Patti Page.
