Cue Sheet

OPENER   

Ladies center back to back, men promenade outside
All the way around the set, same lady, turn by the left
One time and a little bit more, men get back to back
Girls promenade outside around the ring, one time and hear me sing
You turn your partner left, the corner dosado
Come on back one and promenade back home you go
The man that she can't get, is a cat she hasn't met
Promenade her, serenade her, sweet Georgia Brown


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 you square thru 4 hands and then
With the outside pair you make a right hand star, my friend
Then go to the middle, left hand star and don't delay
Turn it once, pick up your corner, star promenade, I say
Back out a full turn, circle in a mixed up ring
You swing the nearest lady, give that gal a swing
Promenade, go two by two, strollin' down the avenue
*They all sign and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her

*Two left feet, but oh so neat is

*Gals despair, they don't compare with

*I like dancing and romancing


MIDDLE BREAK   

Ladies center back to back, men promenade outside
All the way around the set, same lady, turn by the left
One time and a little bit more, men get back to back
Girls promenade outside around the ring, one time and hear me sing
You turn your partner left, the corner dosado
Come on back one and promenade back home you go
Two by two you truck on down with the coolest one around
No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown


CLOSER   

Ladies center back to back, men promenade outside
All the way around the set, same lady, turn by the left
One time and a little bit more, men get back to back
Girls promenade outside around the ring, one time and hear me sing
You turn your partner left, the corner dosado
Come on back one and promenade back home you go
Two by two you truck on down with the coolest one around
T'ain't her sister, that's her mister, sweet Georgia Brown

Sweet Georgia Brown Lyrics ID: 585

She just got here yesterday
Things are hot here, now they say
There's a big change in town
Gals are jealous, there's no doubt
Still the fellows rave about
Sweet, sweet Georgia Brown
And ever since she came the colored folks all claim, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she coos 'em down
Fellers she can't get are fellers she ain't met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her
Sweet Georgia Brown

Brownskin gals you'll get the blues
Brownskin pals you'll surely lose
And there's but one excuse
Now I've told you who she was
And I've told you what she does
Hand this gal her dues
This color'd maiden's pray'r is answer'd anywhere, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

All those tips the porter slips to sweet Georgia Brown
They buy clothes at fashion shows with one dollar down
Oh boy, tips your hats, oh joy, she's the "Cat's"
Who's that mister? T'ain't her sister! Sweet Georgia Brown

Composed by Maceo Pinkard.
Lyrics by Kenneth Casey.
Recorded by Ben Bernie; Brother Bones And His Shadows; Django Reinhardt; many others.
