Cue Sheet

BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square (16 beats)
Reverse (16 beats)
Go round inside the land
come home, swing and whirl and promenade again
We'll sail along that old Green River
On the good ship Rock and Rye


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 right & left thru (backaway), sides star thru
Pass thru, star thru, pass thru
Tag the line, do a cloverleaf in time
Centers turn thru, go left allemande
Dosado your partner, then corner swing
Swing that lady round and you can promenade the ring
We'll sail along that old Green River
On the good ship Rock and Rye

I've Been Floating Down The Old Green River
 
 

Half past four, Dan McGraw, came sneaking to his wifey's door.
She'd been waiting up all night, waiting for him to go to bed.
Danny smiled, like a child, but his wifey grew very wild
Where have you been all night long?, she cried
And this is what Danny replied:

Chorus:
I've been floating down the old green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye.
But I floated too far, I got stuck on a bar,
I was out there alone, wishing that I was home.

The ship got wrecked with the captain and crew,
And there was only one thing left to do,
So I had to drink the whole green river
Dry to get back home to you.

(Repeat chorus)

Composed by Joe Cooper.
Lyrics by Bert Kalmar.
Recorded by Firehouse Five Plus Two; Castle Jazz Band.
