Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain right across the ring
Men turn her with a 1/2 sashay
Girls chain him across
Girls turn him with a 1/2 sashay and everybody
Join hands circle to the left and you move it right along
Allemande left with the corner, come back and promenade
Promenade that lady, go walking round the hall
That's the way we dance down in Georgia


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Head couples reverse promenade just 1/4
Sides go right & left thru and turn 'em, too
Pass thru and now swing thru the outside pair
Boys run right, you bend the line from there
Star thru and now square thru and get to 3
Corner swing and you promenade for me
Promenade that lady, go walking round the hall
That's the way we dance down in Georgia


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Head couples reverse flutter wheel you know
Same four sweep 1/4 and go
Pass thru and now swing thru the outside two
Boys trade, boys run and bend the line
Square thru 3 hands and the corner lady swing
Swing the corner girl and then you promenade the ring
Promenade that lady, go walking round the hall
That's the way we dance down in Georgia

Marching Through Georgia
 
 

Bring the good old bugle, boys, we'll sing another song
Sing it with a spirit that will start the world along
Sing it as we used to sing it, 50,000 strong
While we were marching through Georgia.

Chorus
Hurrah! Hurrah! we bring the jubilee!
Hurrah! Hurrah! the flag that makes you free!
So we sang the chorus from Atlanta to the sea
While we were marching through Georgia.

How the darkies shouted when they heard the joyful sound
How the turkeys gobbled which our commissary found
How the sweet potatoes even started from the ground
While we were marching through Georgia.

Yes and there were Union men who wept with joyful tears,
When they saw the honored flag they had not seen for years;
Hardly could they be restrained from breaking forth in cheers,
While we were marching through Georgia.

"Sherman's dashing Yankee boys will never make the coast!"
So the saucy rebels said and 'twas a handsome boast
Had they not forgot, alas! to reckon with the Host
While we were marching through Georgia.

So we made a thoroughfare for freedom and her train,
Sixty miles of latitude, three hundred to the main;
Treason fled before us, for resistance was in vain
While we were marching through Georgia.

Lyrics by Henry Clay Work.
