Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Hey, circle in a ring
Dem dry bones, Ezekiel connect dem dry bones
Then allemande left dem dry bones, dem bones
Do a right & left grand
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna walk around
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna
promenade
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna dance tonight
Now hear the words of the call


FIGURE (A)   

4 ladies chain across the square, turn 'em on around when they get there
Head 2 do a half sashay, up to the middle and back that way
Pass thru, on the dead run, split the ring and you go round 1
Dosado in the middle you go, to an ocean wave and you rock it so
Balance, then a right hand swing, girls in the middle and you rock it again
Same 2 a right & left thru, turn 'em on around and star thru
Now back right out and make a big ring, circle to the left and hear me sing
Allemande left dem ol' dry bones, dem bones do a right & left grand
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna walk around
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna
promenade
Dem bones, dem bones, ya gonna dance tonight
Now hear the words of the call


FIGURE (B)   

Allemande left, shout hallelujah, swing your own and hug 'er up to ya
Promenade 'em on down the aisle, girls in the lead, now single file
Men step out, take and backtrack, go twice around the other way back
Second time turn a right elbow, once and a half and here we go
Gents star left to beat the band, go once around to the promised land
Connect dem bones in a right & left grand,
Now hear the words of the call


TAG

Allemande left, shout hallelujah, swing your gal, hug her up to ya
Twirl her out and bow down low
That's all...no mo'!

Dry Bones
 
 

Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"
Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"
Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"
"Oh, hear the word of the Lord."

The foot bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the head bone,
Oh, hear the word of the Lord!

Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun'
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun'
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun'
Oh, hear the word of the Lord.

The head bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the foot bone,
Oh, hear the word of the Lord!

Lyrics by James Weldon Johnson.
Recorded by Deep River Boys; Fats Waller; Kingsmen; many others.
