OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Mention my name in Seattle
It's the greatest old town in the world
Tell all the folks you're an old friend of mine
And all the square dancers in town will put out a big welcome sign

Four ladies promenade once inside now
Swing with your own and then promenade
Mention my name, I said mention my mane
But, please don't tell them where I am


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain straight across the ring you go now
Join those hands and circle left around for me
Left allemande the corner to an allemande thar
It's a right pull by and turn left to make a star
Shoot the star and then box the gnat now
Pull by to swing the corner girl and promenade
Mention my name, I said mention my mane
But, please don't give them my address

(But, please tell them - sides face grand square)


(Use the name of your favorite cite in the Opener - Middle Break - Closer)

Mention My Name In Sheboygan
 
 

Mention my name in Sheboygan
It's the greatest little town in the world
Just tell them you're an old friend of mine
And every door in town will have a big welcome sign

So mention my name in Sheboygan
And if you ever get in a jam
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't them where I am

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Paducah
It's the greatest little town in the world
I know a gal there you'll simply adore
She was Miss Paducah back in 1904

So mention my name in Paducah
And if you ever get in a mess
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't give them my address

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Elmira
It's the greatest little town in the world
I told the mayor there that he would go far
I even gave the sheriff an exploding cigar

So mention my name in Elmira
And if they try to put you in jail
Mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't write to me for bail

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Tacoma
It's the greatest little town in the world
I know the big shots in the City Hall
They even got my picture on the post office wall

So mention my name in Tacoma
And if you ever get in a spat
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't tell them where I'm at

Please don't tell them where I'm at!

Lyrics by Bob Hillard, Dick Sanford, and Sammy Mysels.
Recorded by Beatrice Kay; The Everly Brothers.
