OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain go 3/4 around
Roll on away circle left
Arm in arm over meadow and farm
Left allemande weave the ring
We stroll along harmonizing a song
Swing with this girl and promenade
One kiss and then we'll continue again
Walking my baby back home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Come in a right and left thru
Touch 1/4 then boys will run right
Swing thru and now spin that old top
You move right along and recycle again
Reverse flutter wheel promenade
One kiss and then we'll continue again
Walking my baby back home

Walking My Baby Back Home

Gee, it's great after bein' out late
Walkin' my baby back home
Arm in arm over meadow and farm
Walkin' my baby back home

We go 'long harmonizing a song
Or I'm recitin' a poem
Owls go by and they give me the eye
Walkin' my baby back home

We stop for a while, she gives me a smile
And snuggles her head on my chest
We start in to pet and that's when I get
Her talcum all over my vest

After I kinda straighten my tie
She has to borrow my comb
One kiss then I continue again
Walkin' my baby back home

She's 'fraid of the dark so I have to park
Outside of her door till its light
She says if I try to kiss her she'll cry
I dry her tears all through the night

Hand in hand to a barbecue stand
Right from her doorway we roam
Eats and then it's a pleasure again
Walkin' my baby
Talkin' my baby
Lovin' my baby
I don't mean maybe
Walkin' my baby back home

Lyrics by Roy Turk and Fred Ahlert.
Recorded by Nick Lucas (1931); Nat King Cole (1952).
