Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies chain across, turn 'em by the riverside
Roll away 1/2 sashay, circle round the ring you glide
Allemande left, allemande thar, go right & left, make that star
Down by the riverside
Well slip the clutch, left allemande, then do the right & left grand
Hand over hand around the ring you go
Promenade go all the way round, go full around that town
Down by the riverside


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Head 2 ladies chain across, turn 'em by the riverside
Star thru, make a right hand star, down by the riverside
Star promenade your corner round that town
Inside ladies roll away, turn that star the same old way
Back straight out, left allemande
Promenade go all the way round, go full around that town
Down by the riverside

Down By The Riverside (Study War No More)
 
 

I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
I'm gonna study war no more

* I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more

Well, I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside (Oh)
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Well, I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (Where?) down by the riverside
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (A-ha) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Lyrics by unknown; traditional.
Recorded by Pete Seeger; many others.
