Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
It's only a shanty in old Shanty Town
Roof is so slanty, it touches the ground

Men star right, one time around tonight
Left allemande and weave the ring
I'd give up my palace, if I were a king
Swing your girl and promenade around that ring
There's a queen waitin' there with a silvery crown
In that shanty in old Shanty Town


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way around
Right & left thru, turn the girl around
Square thru 4 hands around you know
Dosado that corner, once around
Touch 1/4, follow your neighbor and spread
To the corner, swing that corner and promenade
Oh, there's a queen waitin' there with a silvery crown
In that shanty in old Shanty Town


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
There's a shanty in a town with a little bit of ground
Where the green grass grows all around, all around
Roof's down, roof's gone, how it tumbles to the ground
Yes a little grass shack, set way back, 25 feet from the railroad track
Hangs on my heart all the time

Ladies promenade
Be so happy, hiallie sallasie
If I was a king wouldn't mean a thing

Swing your lady there and promenade the ring
There's a queen waitin there in a rockin chair
Blowing her top and combin her hair
Whip it on round and truck it on down
Cause I got to get back to my Shanty Town

In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town Lyrics ID: 735

I'm up in the world,
But I'd give the world to be where I used to be,
A heavenly nest,
Where I rest the best,
Means more than the world to me.

It's only a shanty
In old Shanty Town
The roof is so slanty it touches the ground.
But my tumbled down shack by an old railroad track,
Like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back.

I'd give up a palace if I were a king.
It's more than a palace, it's my everything.
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
In a shanty in old Shanty Town.

Lyrics by Joe Young, Little Jack Little, and John Siras.
