Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I'll take the leg from some old table
I'll take an arm from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse I'll take some hair,

Circle left
And then I'll put them all together
Left allemande, come back and promenade
And then I'll get more lovin' from a gosh-darned dummy
Than I've ever got from you


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle and count 4 hands and then
Dosado the corner girl
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Couples circulate, ferris wheel
Double pass thru, leaders partner trade and swing
Swing the little lady, promenade
And then I'll get more lovin' from a gosh-darned dummy
Than I've ever got from you


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Boys promenade, go walkin' around that ring
Get back and swing with your girl
Join those hands, circle to the left go around the ring
Left allemande and weave the ring
Wind it in and out and when you meet that girl
Dosado and promenade
And then I'll get more lovin' from a gosh-darned dummy
Than I've ever got from you


TAG

Than I've ever got from you
Than I've ever got from you

Washington And Lee Swing ("The Dummy Song") Lyrics ID: 1260

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

Get me some legs
Get me a chair
Ha ha ha, and a bottle too
Get me a horse
Get me some time
And baby when I'm through

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

I get more lovin', from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you
Yeah momma, I get more lovin' from that dummy than I ever got from you

Lyrics by Lew Brown, Billy Rose, and Ray Henderson.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong.
