Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A


Well you allemande your corner, and your partner right hand swing
Then the gents star left 3/4 round the square
Box the gnat and then change hands, catch her left, left allemande
And a grand ol right & left you go from there
Dosado when you meet
Swing her, 'cause she's mighty sweet
*Promenade in close relation, if she wants some conversation
Say Bless your pea pickin' heart

FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Well now the head 2 couples promenade go halfway with your maid
Then you lead out to the right and circle 4
Head gents break to make 2 lines, forward up and back in time
Bend the lines and chain the ladies cross the floor
Pass thru and promenade with this maid
Walk her all the way, don't be afraid
**Home you go and balance out, dosado and swing and shout
Bless your pea pickin' heart


*Promenade back home with sister, and you tell her how you've missed her

*Promenade and listen, brother, won't you say to one another

**When you've balanced out that way, dosado and swing and say

**When you get back home with sister, dosado and swing her, mister

**Get on home and balance, brother, dosado and swing with mother
Cue Sheet side B

FIGURE (4 times through)    C1, no progression

Walk all around your corner, turn a left hand round your pet
Go back and swing the corner, she's the one you can't forget
Circle round the land, you're walking hand in hand
Whirlaway, go right & left grand
And when you meet your lady, dosado, well I declare
Turn the corner left, the ladies chain across the square
Turn 'em there and then, you swing the corner Jane
Quickly circle 8 in a ring

Forward 8, come back, face the corner, box the gnat
Pull her by to dopaso, partner left
Corner right so nice, partner left, turn her twice
Hold her tight like allemande thar
Now everybody 1/2 sashay to put the ladies in
Your corners swat the flea, then promenade around the ring
Just walk along on down, with the sweetest girl in town
In her little calico gown

In A Little Second Hand Store

I saw the little table that stood in our breakfast nook
The stove we got from mother where you first learned how to cook
They looked so out of place without your pretty face
In a little second hand store

I found the little armchair and the Oriental rug
The cozy little sofa where we used to kiss and hug
They looked so dusty there, no one seemed to care
In a little second hand store

The little odds and ends that we got from our friends
How they thrilled my heart
Bringing back a day, a wedding day in May
When we said we'd never part

I seem to hear them whisper you're to blame for you did wrong
Why don't you kiss and make up, take us back where we belong
It broke my heart to see the home you'd planned for me
In the little second hand store

Lyrics by Dave Dreyer, Ed G. Nelson and Harry Pease.
