Cue Sheet

FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

4 ladies chain across and turn the girls and then
Head 2 square thru 4 hands around my friend
With the sides a dosado once around will do
And ocean wave rock up and back, a spin chain
thru

Turn a right, a left 3/4, turn a right again
Left 3/4, rock it, box the gnat pull 'em
thru

Allemande the corner, come back a dosado
Same girl, look her in the eye, pass by and promeno
They're raisin' a fuss and a hullabaloo
Awaiting down yonder for you


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande left your corner, come home a dosado
Boys star left in the middle, it's once around you go
Meet your partner, dosado once around and then
With your corner star thru, circle left again
All the ladies star by the right, go once around tonight
Same man a left hand round, corner with a right hand round
Partner left an allemande thar, the men back up and star
Shoot the star and find your maid and then you promenade
Your sister and your brother, your daddy and your mother
Are waiting down yonder for you

Down Yonder
 
 

Railroad train, railroad train, hurry some more
Put a little steam on just like never before
Hustle on, bustle on, I've got the blues
Yearning for my Swanee shore, brother if you only knew
You'd want to hurry up too

Down yonder someone beckons to me
Down yonder somone reckons on me
I seem to see a race in memory
Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee
Swanee shore, I miss you more and more
Every day, my mammy land, you're simply grand

Down yonder when the folks get the news
Don't wonder at the hullabaloos
There's daddy and mammy, there's Ephraim and Sammy
Waiting down yonder for me

Summer night, fields of white, bright cotton moon
My, but I feel glad, I'm gonna see you all soon
'Lasses cakes, mammy bakes, I taste them now
I can hear the darkies croon
I'll see my sweetie once more
There's lots of kissing in store

Down yonder someone beckons to me
Down yonder somone reckons on me
I seem to see a race in memory
Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee
Swanee shore, I miss you more and more
Every day, my mammy land, you're simply grand

Down yonder when the folks get the news
Don't wonder at the hullabaloos
There's daddy and mammy, there's Ephraim and Sammy
Waiting down yonder for me

Lyrics by L. Wolfe Gilbert.
Recorded by Del Wood; many others, often as an instrumental.
