Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade, go one time around
Get back and swing your man, go one time and now
Join hands and make a big ring, you circle left go round
Allemande left that corner then weave your ring
*He carries his guitar in a gunny sack
You swing your lady go around promenade like that
**He plays in a big band, playing his guitar
Go, Johnny, go...go, Johnny, go


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) Promenade 1/2 way around
Walk in and square thru go 4 hands and now
Go all the way do the right & left thru, hey
Veer left, couples circulate, move up
Do a half tag, scoot back and that corner swing
You swing your lady go round, promenade that ring
*He never ever learned to read or write so well
**But he could play guitar just like a ringing a bell


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*He's down in Louisiana, close to New Orleans
Well back up in the woods among the evergreens
Stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Lived a country boy named Johnny B Good

4 ladies promenade, go walking round, get back
Get back and swing
You swing your man and promenade your ring
*He plays in a big band, playing his guitar
Go Johnny, go...go Johnny, go


TAG (suggestion)

Do a ramblin roll:
Face partner, single circle (no wave) , star thru and
roll
,
Step apart and bow

Johnny B. Goode Lyrics ID: 44

Way down Louisiana close to New Orleans,
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens...
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood,
Where lived a country boy name of Johnny B. Goode...
He never ever learned to read or write so well,
But he could play the guitar like he was ringing a bell.

Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go
Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
And sit beneath the trees by the railroad track.
Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade,
Playing to the rhythm that the drivers made.
People passing by would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play

Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go
Johnny B. Goode

His mama told him someday he would be a man,
And he would be the leader of a big old band.
Many people coming from miles around
To hear him play his music when the sun go down
Maybe someday his name would be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight.

Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go
Johnny B. Goode

Lyrics by Chuck Berry.
