OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around that corner, see saw round your taw
Join your hands and circle left around that square dance hall
Allemande left and allemande thar, go right and left and star
Gents you're gonna back up, you got a right hand star
Shoot that star, weave by one, box the gnat, change hands
Allemande left that corner, the partner right & left grand
Oh, dang me, dang me
Promenade or they'll hang me
Hang me from the high ol' tree
Oh baby will ya swing with me


FIGURE    C1, corner progression

Head ladies chain to the right, turn with an arm around
Side ladies chain across, you turn with a left around
Head two 1/2 square thru, split the outside pair
Round one make a line of 4, dance forward and back right there
Star thru, substitute, back right over two
Allemande left that corner, grand right & left you do
Oh, dang me, dang me
Promenade or they'll hang me
Hang me from the high ol' tree
Oh baby don't swing with me

Dang Me
 
 

Boo-woo Boop boop boop boop boo - ba-oo-ba boo boo bow
Ba-boo-ba bam...
Ba-bye-oo ba ba ba ba - by-oo boo boo bow

Well here I sit-a high, gettin' ideas
Ain't nothing but a fool would live like this
Out all night and runnin' wild
Woman sittin' home with a month old child

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman would you weep for me

Just settin' around drinkin' with the rest of the guys
Six rounds we bought, and I bought five
Spent the groceries and half the rent
I lack fourteen dollars havin' twenty seven cents

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman would you weep for me

They say roses are red and violets are purple
Sugar's sweet and so's maple syrple
And I'm the seventh out of seven sons
My pappy was a pistol
I'm a son of a gun.

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman would you weep for me

Lyrics by Roger Miller.
Recorded by Roger Miller.
