Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    A1

4 ladies chain the ring, turn 'em boys, send 'em back
Star thru and promenade
Head 2 couples wheel around, go right & left thru
Cross trail thru and go left allemande
You weave the ring, now meet Johnny and Joe
You'll meet your partner, latch on and promeno
Sail right down that ol' green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples up and back, and 1/2 square thru
Circle 4 and break to a line
Forward 8 and back with you
And then you star thru
Dosado to an ocean wave, rock it up and back
You're gonna swing thru and then, when you do
Box the gnat, swing and promenade
And then you sail right down that ol' green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye

I've Been Floating Down The Old Green River
 
 

Half past four, Dan McGraw, came sneaking to his wifey's door.
She'd been waiting up all night, waiting for him to go to bed.
Danny smiled, like a child, but his wifey grew very wild
Where have you been all night long?, she cried
And this is what Danny replied:

Chorus:
I've been floating down the old green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye.
But I floated too far, I got stuck on a bar,
I was out there alone, wishing that I was home.

The ship got wrecked with the captain and crew,
And there was only one thing left to do,
So I had to drink the whole green river
Dry to get back home to you.

(Repeat chorus)

Composed by Joe Cooper.
Lyrics by Bert Kalmar.
Recorded by Firehouse Five Plus Two; Castle Jazz Band.
