Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Roll out the barrel
We'll have a barrel of fun

Allemande left with the corner, come home and box the gnat
4 ladies promenade, one time you run
Turn your partner right, a full turn
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Everybody roll out the barrel
Because the gang's all here


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The 4 little ladies chain 3/4
The sides promenade go halfway
The new head ladies chain 3/4
Side men turn that girl and roll away
Go forward 6 and back - slide thru
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Everybody roll out the barrel
Because the gang's all here

I said the gang's all here

Beer Barrel Polka (Roll Out The Barrel)
 
 

There's a garden, what a garden,
Only happy faces bloom there,
And there's never any room there,
For a worry or a gloom there
Oh there's music and there's dancing,
And a lot of sweet romancing
When they play the polka
They all get in the swing

Every time they hear that oom-pa-pa,
Everybody feels so tra-la-la
They want to throw their cares away,
They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay
Then they hear a rumble on the floor,
It's the big surprise they're waiting for
And all the couples form a ring,
For miles around you'll hear them sing...

Roll out the barrel,
We'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel,
We've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel,
Ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel,
For the gang's all here

Composed by Jaromir Vejvoda.
Lyrics by Wladimir A. Timm and Vasek Zeman.
Recorded by Frankie Yankovic; The Andrews Sisters; many others.
