Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    C4

Join hands and circle left around that ole ring
Turn the corner under, bow and you swing
The men star left once around this land
Box the gnat, change hands, left allemande
Grand right and left round the ring you will go
Meet your lovin' baby, back to back dosado
Promenade her home to the message I shout
Nobody knows ya when you're down and out


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade, but only go halfway
Square thru 4 hands and don't delay
You face the nearest side and do the right & left thru
Dive thru and circle 4, one time'll do, and when you're straight
Pass thru, swing thru the couple there
Boys trade and then promenade round the square
Ya know it's mighty strange but without any doubt
Nobody knows ya when you're down and out


TAG

Swing her there, that's it you're through

SEQUENCE (Opener, figure twice for heads, break, figure twice for sides, tag)

Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out Lyrics ID: 1573

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
I carried my friends out for a good time
Buying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low
I didn't have a friend, and no place to go
So if I ever get my hand on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till them eagle's green

Nobody knows you when you're down and out
In my pocket, not one penny
And my friends, I haven't any
But if I ever get on my feet again
Then I'll meet my long lost friend
It's mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out
I mean when you're down and out

Mmmmmmmm.... when you're down and out
Mmmmmmmm... not one penny
And my friends, I haven't any
Mmmmmmmm... Well I felt so low
Nobody wants me round their door
Mmmmmmmm... Without a doubt,
No man can use you when you're down and out
I mean when you're down and out

Lyrics by Jimmy Cox.
Recorded by Bessie Smith; Jimmy Witherspoon; others.
