Cue Sheet side A

OPENER    Basic

Well, bow to your partner, the gal by your side
All join hands and circle left, you circle out wide
Walk all around that left hand lady, see saw round your taw
Back to the corner with your left hand, allemande left, go right & left grand
Right foot high, the left foot low, meet your honey and you dosado
Dosado on the heel and toe, then step right up and swing her, Joe
You swing her once, and swing her again, then promenade the ring
To the Alabama Jubilee, whoo-ee (tag) to the Alabama Jubilee


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

4 little ladies promenade, go round the inside ring
Come back home and swing your man, you swing and you swing
Walk all around that left hand lady, bow down to your own
Now swing your honey, go round and round, any ol' way but upside down
4 men promenade, you go round the inside ring
Come back home and dosado, then corners you'll swing
Swing that corner round and round, then you promenade to town
To the Alabama Jubilee, oh me (tag) to the Alabama Jubilee


MIDDLE BREAK   

Well, turn the left hand lady with the left hand round,
back to your honey with a right hand round
Twice around your partners go, to the right hand lady with a left elbow
Back to your honey and swing her, men, swing her quick, we're gone again
Allemande left with your left hand, here we go, right & left grand
Big foot high, little foot low, meet your gal and you dosado
One time around on the heel and toe, then step right up and swing her, Joe
You swing her once, and swing her again, then promenade the ring
To the Alabama Jubilee, whoo-ee (tag) to the Alabama Jubilee

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around your corner, she's the gal from Arkansas
See-saw round your partners, gents star right around that hall
And when you meet your corners, do a left allemande
Now walk around that circle with a right & left grand
When you meet your honey, do a dosado
Step right up and swing her high and low
Then promenade that ring, throw your heads right back and sing
Because, just because...


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well, the 2 head ladies chain right on over
Same 2 ladies chain back again
Side 2 ladies chain right on over
Same 2 ladies chain back again
Allemande left your corners, allemande right your partners
Go back and swing that sweet corner gal
Then promenade that corner, boys, shout and sing with joy
Because, just because...


TAG

Because, just because...

Alabama Jubilee Lyrics ID: 1

Mandolins, violins
Hear the darkies tunin' up, the fun begins
Come this way, don't delay
Better hurry, honey dear, or you'll be missin'
Music sweet, ragtime treat
Goes right to your head and trickles to your feet
It's a reminder, a memory finder
Of nights down in old Alabam'

Hear that flute, it's a beaut'
And the tunes it's tootin', Tootsie, ain't they cute?
Let's begin, it's a sin
To be missin' all this syncopated music!
Oh, you Jane, once again
Give your legs some exercise to that refrain
Boy, that's what makes me so dreamy and takes me
Back home to my old Alabam'

Chorus

You ought to see Deacon Jones when he rattles the bones
Old Parson Brown foolin' 'round like a clown
Aunt Jemima, who is past eighty-three
Shouting "I'm full of pep!
Watch yo' step, watch yo' step!"
One-legged Joe danced around on his toe
Threw away his crutch and hollered
"Let her go!"

Oh, honey hail, hail, the gang's all here
For an Alabama Jubilee

Composed by George Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by Robert Crumb, Merle Travis, the Skillet Lickers, Chet Atkins, Hank Snow, and many others.

Just Because Lyrics ID: 593

Well, well, well,
Just because you think you're so pretty,
And just because your momma thinks you're hot,
Well, just because you think you've got something
That no other girl has got,
You've caused me to spend all my money.
You laughed and called me old Santa Claus.
Well, I'm telling you,
Baby, I'm through with you.
Because, well well, just because.

Well, well, well,
There'll come a time when you'll be lonesome
And there'll come a time when you'll be blue.
Well, there'll come a time when old Santa
He won't pay your bills for you.

You've caused me to lose all my women
And now, now you say we are through.
Well, I'm telling you
Baby, I was through with you
A long long time ago.

Well, just because you think you're so pretty
And just because your mama thinks you're the hottest thing in
town
Well, just because you think you've got something
That nobody else has got,
You've caused me to spend all of my money.
Honey, you laughed and called me your old Santa Claus.
Well, I'm telling you I'm through with you
Because, well well, just because.

Lyrics by Bob Shelton, Joe Shelton and Sid Robin.
Recorded by Nelstone's Hawaiians.
