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
