Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain go straight across the ring
Chain the ladies back home across I sing
Join hands and circle to the left go round the land
Left allemande, and weave the ring
Come on and weave it in, weave it out and when you meet your maid
Dosado and then you promenade and when you
Hear the band, come on and sing along
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

1 & 3 you pass thru, chase right you do
Boys run right and do the right & left thru, then you
Cross trail thru, corner ladies swing
Left allemande new corner, weave the ring
Weave it in and out and when you meet your maid
Dosado and then you promenade
When you hear the band come on, sing along
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight


TAG

Swing her, bow to the partner, corner too
Right there, you're through

Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight
 
 

Come along, get you ready Wear your bran', bran' new gown
For there's gwine to be a meeting In that good, good old town
Where you knowded everybody And they all knowded you
And you've got a rabbit's foot To keep away de hoo-doo.

When you hear that the preaching does begin
Bend down low for to drive away your sin
And when you gets religion, you want to shout and sing
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

CHORUS:
When you hear dem a bells go ding ling ling
All join 'round and sweetly you must sing
And when the verse am through in the chorus all join in
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.

There'll be girls for ev'ry body: In that good, good old town,
For there's Miss Consola Davis And there's Miss Gondolia Brown
And there's Miss Johanna Beasly She am dressed all in red,
I just hugged her and I kissed her And to me then she said:

Please oh please, oh do not let me fall,
You're all mine and I love you best of all,
And you must be my man, or I'll have no man at all,
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, My baby

Composed by Theodore Metz.
Lyrics by Joe Hayden.
Recorded by Bessie Smith (1927).
