Cue Sheet


Circle left
You oughta see Deacon Jones as he rattles his bones
Old Parson Brown jumpin' straight up and down

When you're home, walk all around your corner
Turn your partner by the left
Head ladies center for a tea cup chain
Sides to the right and you turn that Jane
One-legged Joe hopping round on his toe
Threw away his crutches and he hollered "let her go!"
For it's hail, hail, the gang's all here
For the Alabama Jubilee

FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle 4 hands I sing
Meet the sides with a right & left thru
Veer to the left and the girls will hinge
Do a diamond circulate, flip your diamond
Girls will trade, swing thru, come down that way
Spin the top, keep moving boy, walk up and slide thru
Swing that corner lady, promenade, oh yes you do
For it's hail, hail, the gang's all here
For the Alabama Jubilee

Alabama Jubilee Lyrics ID: 1

Mandolins, violins
Hear the darkies tunin' up, the fun begins
Come this way, don't delay
Better hurry, honey dear, or you'll be missin'
Music sweet, ragtime treat
Goes right to your head and trickles to your feet
It's a reminder, a memory finder
Of nights down in old Alabam'

Hear that flute, it's a beaut'
And the tunes it's tootin', Tootsie, ain't they cute?
Let's begin, it's a sin
To be missin' all this syncopated music!
Oh, you Jane, once again
Give your legs some exercise to that refrain
Boy, that's what makes me so dreamy and takes me
Back home to my old Alabam'


You ought to see Deacon Jones when he rattles the bones
Old Parson Brown foolin' 'round like a clown
Aunt Jemima, who is past eighty-three
Shouting "I'm full of pep!
Watch yo' step, watch yo' step!"
One-legged Joe danced around on his toe
Threw away his crutch and hollered
"Let her go!"

Oh, honey hail, hail, the gang's all here
For an Alabama Jubilee

Composed by George Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by Robert Crumb, Merle Travis, the Skillet Lickers, Chet Atkins, Hank Snow, and many others.
