Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Hoist up the John B. sail
See how the man sail sets
Call for the captain ashore
Let me go home
allemande left and weave
Drinking all night, got into a fight
Swing and promenade
I feel so broke up
I wanna go home


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Those heads square thru four
Round your corner dosado
Swing thru and then spin the top
Boys move up and right and left thru
Square thru fo three
Swing your corner, promenade
I feel so broke up
I wanna go home


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
We come on the sloop John B.
My grandfather and me
Around Nassay town
we do roam

Drinking all night, got into a fight
Swing and promenade
I feel so broke up
I wanna go home


CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade once around the ring
Come back and swing your man
Join hands, circle left

Drinking all night, got into a fight
Swing and promenade

I wanna go home

I wanna go home
I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

The John B. Sails (aka "The Sloop John B.") Lyrics ID: 657

We come on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

The first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Cap'n's trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don't you let me go home

Hoist up the John B
I feel so broke up I wanna go home
Let me go home

The poor cook he caught the fits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don't they let me go home
This is the worst trip I've ever been on

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don't you let me go home

Lyrics by Lee Hays and Carl Sandburg.
Recorded by The Kingston Trio; The Weavers; The Beach Boys; many others.
