Cue Sheet


Walk all around the left hand lady, see saw your taw
4 men to the middle make a right hand star and roll it around the hall
You do an allemande left that corner lady, turn thru at home
Left allemande and weave the ring
After the ball is over, after the ball
Swing your honey go around and around and promenade that hall
You promenade your lady, gotta get back home and swing
You swing a little girl around and have a ball

FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head 2 couples square thru gotta get 4 hands you go
All the way around to the corner girl, dosado you know
Well now you curlique, follow your neighbor
Boys cross run to the other end, recycle gone again
Touch 1/4, scoot back, you roll to face
Swing a little corner lady round and then you promenade
You go walking with that lady, dancing around that hall
Get back home and clap your hands and have a ball

FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 you promenade you go halfway around that square
Into the middle do a 1/2 square thru, gonna get 2 hands from there
Now curlique, walk & dodge, a partner trade you know
Well flutter wheel it's full around you go
Star thru, pass to the center, square thru 3/4 round I sing
Swing a little corner girl around and promenade that ring
Promenade that lady go full around that hall
Get back home, clap your hands and have a ball


Bow to the partner, corners all
And keeno kids, that's it, that's all

The first figure uses a "Scoot Back" and "Roll to face", which is not generally accepted as 'legal'.
