OPENER - CLOSER    C4

8 to the center for a rainbow stroll
When I was a child, down in South Caroline
Soon as Saturday sun went on down
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone
Going to that big square dance

Left allemande and weave
Well my old radio would play that old opery show
So I never got lonesome or blue

Promenade
There ain't a thing in this world to make you fall in love, girl
Like a San Antonio Stroll


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the heads promenade halfway with your maid
Into the middle and square thru 4 hands around
All the way around and then a right & left thru my friend
Do an eight chain 6 across the town
And then the lights went down low, the fiddler picked up his bow
Swing that corner and you promenade her home
Now I'll sing it to you so we both can do
That old San Antonio Stroll


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
When my folks would come home, they'd be hummin' a song
Mama would smile and say child don't you know

Allemande left to an allemande thar, go forward 2 and star
Going to that big square dance in town
Slip the clutch, pass one girl, left allemande the corner girl
Dosado and you'll promenade her home

San Antonio Stroll
 
 

When I was a child down in South Caroline
Soon as Saturday sun went on down
My folks and sister would go and leave me home all alone,
Going to that big square dance in town.
Well my old radio would play that old opry show,
So I never got lonesome or blue.
I'd fall asleep in my chair and dream that I was right there,
Just singing the whole night through.
When my folks would come home, they'd be humming a song,
Mama'd smile and say: "Child, don't you know,
There ain't a thing in this world to make you fall in love girl,
Like the San Antonio Stroll?"

Well the day finally come when my mama said: "Hun,
It's 'bout time you came with us as well."
Well, I had me a time, yes, I danced all the night,
'Til they rang that ol' cracked - midnight bell.
Then the lights went down low, the fiddler picked up his bow,
And he played something stately and slow.
And my sister Eileen and her husband-to-be,
They held hands and began to stroll.
I've been away for a while, but it still brings a smile,
When I think of the way that it goes.
Now I'll sing it to you just so we both can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Yes, I'll sing it to you just so we all can do,
That old San Antonio Stroll.

Lyrics by Peter Noah.

Comments

Rainbow Stroll: from a square position. Everyone takes partner and walks 2 steps to the center, then do a u-turn back, turning toward the corner and then out each time (4 counts). Each man take as new partner the girl on the right (original corner) and take two steps from the center of square, then California twirl (4 counts). Repeat 3 times. Complete movement 32 counts.
