Cue Sheet


Allemande left and allemande thar, right & left and make a star
Bye, bye, blackbird
Shoot that star to the heavens whirl, go right & left to the second girl
Bye, bye, blackbird
Shoot that star, grand right & left around the ring you go
And when you meet 'er you can promenade, you know
Pack up all our cares and woe, here we go, singin' low
Blackbird, bye, bye

FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Let's circle to the left on the heel and toe, partner left, dopaso
Bye, bye, blackbird
4 ladies chain the track, when you do, chain 'em back
Bye, bye, blackbird
Whirlaway, weave by two, the next girl swing
You swing that pretty little girl and promenade that ring
Where somebody waits for me, sugar sweet, so is she
Blackbird, bye, bye

Bye Bye Blackbird

Pack up all my care and woe
Here I go feelin' low
Bye bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is he
Bye bye blackbird

No one here can love or understand me
Oh what hard luck stories they all hand me

Make my bed and light the light
I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye

Make my bed and light the light
I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye

Composed by Ray Henderson.
