Circle left *There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun Left allemande, come back a dosado Men star left around you run Turn partner by the right, go left allemande Swing your girl and promenade her son And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And I know I'm one
FIGURE Plus, corner progression
Heads square thru 4 hands you go Around your corner dosado Square thru again, get me 4 hands my friend Face out, chase right and go Now single hinge, ladies trade, swing thru and then Swing your corner, promenade for fun And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And I know I'm one
*My mother was a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans
*My father was a gambler Way down in New Orleans
And I know I'm one
