OPENER    Basic, corner progression

Bow to the partner, swing with the pretty little lady
HEY - Bow to the corner, same thing, swing your partner
Go back to the corner with the ole left hand
Allemande left do the right & left grand
Honey sugar baby mine, mine, mine
Do a dosado that lady when you meet her, swing her
There's no one else that's sweeter, promenade
Promenade to the crawdad hole
You dig bait honey, I'll get a pole
Honey sugar baby mine

Well the (head couples)* promenade the outside, all the way

Head (side) couples do a right and left thru

Crawdad Song Lyrics ID: 442

You get a line and I'll get a pole, Honey,
You get a line and I'll get a pole, Babe.
You get a line and I'll get a pole,
We'll go fishin' in the crawdad hole,
Honey, Baby mine.

Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold, Honey,
Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold, Babe,
Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold,
Lookin' down that crawdad hole,
Honey, Baby mine.

Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Honey,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Babe,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back,
Packin' all the crawdads he can pack,
Honey, Baby mine.

The man fell down and he broke that sack, Honey,
The man fell down and he broke that sack, Babe,
The man fell down and he broke that sack,
See those crawdads backing back,
Honey, Baby mine.

I heard the duck say to the drake, Honey,
I heard the duck say to the drake, Babe,
I heard the duck say to the drake,
There ain't no crawdads in this lake,
Honey, Baby mine.

Lyrics by unknown; traditional.
Recorded by Lone Star Cowboys; Joe Turner; Pete Seeger; many others.
