Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
Come on get rhythm, when you get the blues

Do an allemande left with the corner girl
Turn your partner by the right you whirl
Do an allemande left and a right & left grand
Well it's a grand ole right and a right & left grand
Every other girl with every other hand
Swing... and you promenade the land
It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe
But oh what good it'll do for you
Get rhythm, when you get the blues


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade your girl
Get halfway round that big old world
Down the middle and square thru
You get 4 hands round that ring you do
Go all the way and do a right & left thru
Veer to the left and ferris wheel
Walk right in you do
Square thru 3/4 round that ring
That corner swing, you promenade that ring
It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe
But oh what good it'll do for you
Get rhythm, when you get the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

The rock and roll feelin' in your bones
Put taps on you toes, and get going
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

Get Rhythm
 
 

Get rhythm when you get the blues
Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones
Get taps on your toes and just get gone
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Little shoeshine boy never gets low down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin' low at the peoples' feet
On the windy corner of the dirty street
Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes
How'd he keep from gettin' the blues
He grinned as he shook his little head
Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

Get rhythm when you get the blues
Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe
Does a million dollars worth of good for you
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Well, I started to listen to the shoeshine boy
And I thought I was gonna jump for joy
Slapped on the shoe polish left and right
He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away
I said you're a mighty little boy to be a-workin' that way
He said "I like it", with a big wide grin
And he kept on poppin' and he said again

Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
Yes a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine
It shakes all the trouble from your worried mind
Get rhythm when you get the blues
Get rhythm when you get the blues
Get rhythm when you get the blues
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones
Get taps on your toes and get gone
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Lyrics by Johnny Cash.
Recorded by Johnny Cash.
