Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Honor your partner, swing your corner lady
Honor that corner, swing your pretty lady
Back to the corner with your left hand
Off you go in a right & left grand
Honey, baby, mine
Dosado your lady when you meet her
Swing her, boys, there's no one else that's sweeter
Now promenade to the crawdad hole
You dig the bait and I'll get a pole
Honey, baby, mine


FIGURE   

First old couple promenade the outside
Two side ladies chain across the inside
Head two couples right & left thru
Turn 'em boys, like you always do
Two head ladies chain across the ring
Side couples right & left thru, head couples swing
Two head ladies chain across, side couples swing
The two side gents will step across
And swing with the one you almost lost
Head two couples right & left back home


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande left with the old left hand,
Partner right and a right & left grand
I got a wife that's lean and tall
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feel in the hall
Now promenade to the crawdad hole
Big ol' frog and a little tadpole
Honey, baby, mine


(Repeat figure with second couple leading out
Repeat break;
Repeat figure with third couple leading out
Repeat break;
Repeat figure with fourth couple leading out
Repeat break for closer)

Crawdad Song
 
 

You get a line and I'll get a pole, Honey,
You get a line and I'll get a pole, Babe.
You get a line and I'll get a pole,
We'll go fishin' in the crawdad hole,
Honey, Baby mine.

Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold, Honey,
Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold, Babe,
Sittin' on the bank 'til my feet get cold,
Lookin' down that crawdad hole,
Honey, Baby mine.

Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Honey,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Babe,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back,
Packin' all the crawdads he can pack,
Honey, Baby mine.

The man fell down and he broke that sack, Honey,
The man fell down and he broke that sack, Babe,
The man fell down and he broke that sack,
See those crawdads backing back,
Honey, Baby mine.

I heard the duck say to the drake, Honey,
I heard the duck say to the drake, Babe,
I heard the duck say to the drake,
There ain't no crawdads in this lake,
Honey, Baby mine.

Lyrics by unknown; traditional.
Recorded by Lone Star Cowboys; Joe Turner; Pete Seeger; many others.
