Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I met my little brown eyed girl down by the riverside
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside

Allemande left your corner girl,
Turn a right hand around your own pretty girl
Allemande left and weave the ring
She said have patience little man
Swing with your girl and promenade
And maybe some sweet day I can find a way
That my name and yours can be the same


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two couples promenade halfway around
Down the middle and square thru four
Go all the way and then do a right & left thru
Veer to the left and ferris wheel
Square thru 3/4 round and the corner lady swing
Swing with your girl and promenade
And maybe some sweet day I can find a way
That my name and yours can be the same


TAG

That my name and yours can be the same

Down By The Riverside (Study War No More)
 
 

I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
I'm gonna study war no more

* I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more

Well, I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside (Oh)
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Well, I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (Where?) down by the riverside
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (A-ha) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Lyrics by unknown; traditional.
Recorded by Pete Seeger; many others.
