Cue Sheet


Well now those 4 little ladies promenade inside of that ring
Go back home and swing and swing, and everybody swing
Walk around your corner, see saw with your taw
Men star right in the middle of the ring, go once around the hall
When you find your corner turn her left allemande
Dosado your partner, then a right & left grand
We'll do the square dance dance under brightest of lights
We'll wear our glad rags tonight
Swing your honey
We'll wear our glad rags tonight

FIGURE    A1, R-H lady progression

Head ladies chain, same 4 outside go single file
Side ladies chain, all follow them, go single file
Take down your curlers, then powder your nose
Face to the middle, 4 ladies chain
We'll wear our best clothes
Side couples cross trail, allemande the corner maid
Pass one and swing the next, and then we'll promenade
Never a ballroom held a prettier sight
We'll wear our glad rags tonight

Swing your honey
We'll wear our glad rags tonight

SEQUENCE: (Opener, figure twice for heads, break, figure twice for sides, closer)

Glad Rags

Now honey, you do the dishes and I'll feed the old sow
Also the chickens and our one Jersey cow
Take down your curlers and powder your nose
Big time at Jones' place, so wear your best clothes
There'll be no evening gowns, not even a tux
They'll come in wagons, buggies and pick-up trucks
We'll do square dancin' under kerosene light
We'll wear glad rags tonight, my honey
We'll wear glad rags tonight

Big time at Jones' place, so wear your best clothes

Silvester comin', hum and fiddle a tune
Red headed kids will swipe away his spittoon
Then run and hide behind a bale of hay
But that old sittin' hen will scare 'em away
Look for me beside the old cider keg
I'll set my cup down and we'll both shake a leg
Never a ballroom had a prettier sight
We'll wear glad rags tonight, my honey
We'll wear glad rags tonight

Lyrics by Johnny Bond.
