Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

All four ladies promenade one time around
Get home and swing awhile with your man
Join up hands and circle to the left around the ring
Do a left allemande and weave the ring
Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
Why don't you dosado and promenade her
We sure make lots of waves on the water
Rock'n in Rosalie's boat


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads roll away
Zip into the middle and back
Star thru, make a right hand star
Heads star left in the middle, travel all the way around
Square thru 3 the outside two
Trade by, swing thru,
boys trade, girls turn back
Promenade the ring, go
*We sure make lots of waves on the water
Rock'n in Rosalie's boat

Rockin' In Rosalee's Boat
 
 

When the sun goes down we slip out of town
Down where the river flows
We take a sleepin' bag and a bottle of wine
And go rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
And down the river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

The night is thrillin' and Rosalee's willin'
We're takin' a midnight flow
We're eatin' fried chicken while the music is playing
On our transistor radio

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
And down the river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Rosalee honey, it ain't funny
Your Daddy's gonna murder me
'Cause I'm half drunk and the boat's half sunk
And we're almost to New Orleans

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
As down the river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
And down the river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
And down that river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Well the stars are bright and there's a moon out tonight
And down that river we go
And we sure make a lot of waves on the water
Rockin' in Rosalee's boat

Lyrics by Robert Lee McDill.

Comments

A fast-paced fun record. One of the best "classics". On the record label the title is spelled Rockin' in Rosalee's Boat.
 
Would like to get the chords to play the song, if possible.
