Cue Sheet


4 little ladies chain across that ring
Turn and chain the ladies right back home again
Join hands and circle go walking around that ring
Left allemande then you weave around I sing
Weave that ring go in and out when you meet your girl
Dosado go once around then promenade that world
She's kinda short and real cute to boot
She's my Coney Island washboard gal

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru 4 hands around you go
Around that corner, dosado
Swing thru and then girls fold behind that man
Peel off, couples circulate 1 place around and then
Wheel & deal, pass thru, trade by and swing
Left allemande that corner you promenade that ring
Promenade like that, go walking down that track
With your Coney Island washboard gal


All 4 ladies chain across the ring
You turn and chain them right back home again
Walk all around the corner, see saw your own
Men star by the right and travel once around tonight
Turn your partner left and then your corner dosado
You run home and swing and promenade
She washed a hole right through the knees of
a brand-new pair of BVDs
My Coney Island washboard gal


Heads right & left thru, sides do the same
The heads square thru 4 hands inside the ring
Get to the corner dosado, all the way round you go
Make a wave and balance up and back, all 8 circulate
Star thru and right & left thru, turn a girl you know
Slide thru, swing a little girl around and promenade
You promenade her high and wide
Won't she make a lovely bride
That Coney Island washboard gal

Coney Island Washboard

Down by the beach there's the cutest little peach
And I must say she has the cutest way
Playing a chord upon her washboard
Folks would gather 'round from everywhere in town
Just to hear that sound! On a...

Coney Island washboard she would play,
You could hear her on the boardwalk every day
Soapsuds all around, bubbles on the ground
Rub a dub a dub in her little tub all those tunes she found
Thimbles on her fingers made a noise
She played Charleston on the laundry for the boys
She could rag a tune right through the knees
Of a brand new pair of BVDs,
Coney Island Washboard roundelay

Lyrics by Ned Nestor, Claude Shugart, Hampton Durand, Jerry Adams.
Recorded by Hoagy Carmichael; Firehouse Five Plus Two; Mills Brothers; many others.
