Cue Sheet


Circle left
Won't you come along with me, come along with me
To the Mississippi, to the Mississippi

Left allemande, you do a dosado
Men star left, turn it one time you go
Turn thru at home now, left allemande the corner
Swing and promenade her, promenade your lady
Promenade your lady to the land of dreams
Steaming down the river down to New Orleans

FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Heads pass thru, cloverleaf my friend
Double pass thru, all face in
Pass thru again, wheel & deal and then
Ladies lead dixie style, you make a wave, balance a while
Slip the clutch, left allemande that corner one
Swing your lady around, promenade her son
Promenade on down
You've got the Basin Street Blues


Walk around your corner, swing with your partner
You've got the Basin Street Blues

Basin Street Blues

Won't you come and go with me
Down that Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Come along with me on, down to New Orleans

Now the band's there to greet us
Old friends will meet us
Where all them folks goin' to the St. Louis Cemetery meet
Heaven on earth... they call it Basin Street

I'm tellin' ya, Basin Street... is the street
Where all them characters from the First street they meet
New Orleans... land of dreams
You'll never miss them rice and beans
Way down south in New Orleans

They'll be huggin'... and a kissin'
That's what I been missin'
And all that music...lord, if you just listen'
New Orleans...I got them Basin Street Blues

Now ain't you glad you went with me
On down that Mississippi
We took a boat to the land of dreams
Heaven on earth...they call it Basin Street

Lyrics by Spencer Williams.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong (1928).
