Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time around
Gonna get back home, swing the one you know
Join your hands and circle left, go walkin' round with your pet
Left allemande that corner, gonna weave around that old set
Go in and out around, when you meet this girl you know
Dosado and promenade
And we'll go sailing down that old green river
On the good ship rock and rye


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around
Gonna meet those sides and make a right hand star
Heads star left one time around to the same old 2 you found
Right & left thru I say, turn this girl and roll away
Touch 1/4, scoot back and the corner girl you swing
Swing that girl and promenade
And we'll go sailing down that old green river
On the good ship rock and rye

I've Been Floating Down The Old Green River
 
 

Half past four, Dan McGraw, came sneaking to his wifey's door.
She'd been waiting up all night, waiting for him to go to bed.
Danny smiled, like a child, but his wifey grew very wild
Where have you been all night long?, she cried
And this is what Danny replied:

Chorus:
I've been floating down the old green river
On the good ship Rock and Rye.
But I floated too far, I got stuck on a bar,
I was out there alone, wishing that I was home.

The ship got wrecked with the captain and crew,
And there was only one thing left to do,
So I had to drink the whole green river
Dry to get back home to you.

(Repeat chorus)

Composed by Joe Cooper.
Lyrics by Bert Kalmar.
Recorded by Firehouse Five Plus Two; Castle Jazz Band.
