4 ladies promenade inside the ring, get home and swing, everybody swing Join hands and circle, go walkin' tonight Allemande your corner, turn partner by the right 4 men star by the left hand, one time and then Turn thru the partner, and go left allemande Grand right & left now, go movin' round the land When you meet you promenade go hand in hand Promenade your lady go round the hall To the banjo pickers ball
FIGURE Mainstream, corner progression
Head couples square thru 4 hands you go Dosado with the corner you know Make a wave, ladies trade, swing thru and go Boys run right, and then couples circulate my friend Tag the line all the way thru, face to the left you do Boys trade, boys run, recycle too Swing the corner girl around and go left allemande Grand right & left now movin' round the land When you meet the lady promenade the hall To the banjo pickers ball

I'll be down to get you in a taxi, Honey
You better be ready about half past eight
Now dearie, don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember when we get there, Honey
The two-steps, I'm goin' to have 'em all
Goin' to dance out both my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutters' Ball
