OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade get one time around you know
Gonna come on back and swing that man, here we go
Hey join all your hands, circle to the left go moving then
You do an allemande left that corner girl
Now weave around that ring
And he's flat-footin' it, now he's glat getting it
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl
Promenade to the rhythm of the band
(music break)
And he is flat-footin' it all night long


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head 2 couples promenade go half around that floor
The side pair go right & left thru, turn the girl you know
You'll touch 1/4, then boys run right for me
Dosado and look her in the eye, and do an eight chain 4
And he's flat-footin' it, now he's flat getting it
Swing and whirl that corner girl
Promenade to the rhythm of the band
(music break)
And he is flat-footin' it all night long

Flat-Footin' It
 
 

It started in Roanoke a little whiles ago
A friend knew a dance that you ought to know
They call it flat-footin' and it sure looks fine
Right now it's flat-footin' it time

And you'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that guitar Pickin' it, pick it

Just let your arms hang right where they are
Then you'll start flat-footin' it to the bar
Turn yourself loose all the law will allow
And you're doing that flat footin' it now

You'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that Drummer pickin' it, pick it

It started in Roanoke and came a long way
Now it's a flat-footin' it USA
Good for your spirits and good for your health
You oughta try a little flat-footin' yourself

And you'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that bass Fiddle pickin' it, pick it

Well, all of the students at the university
Shocked and amazed the existing faculty
Some dropped biology and some cut their math
To enroll in a flat-footin' it class

Flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that band A-pickin' it, pick it

Lyrics by Tom T. Hall.
