Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Honor your partner, give her a swing
Sashay the corner on the left of the ring
See saw round your darlin' and bow real low
Go back swing the corner, get set to go
Allemande left and you pass this sweet
Swing with the next, she's the Belle of the fleet
Promenade home, go sailing on the levee
Swing 'em on the Robert E. Lee


FIGURE   

Head couples balance and swing
Promenade just half of the ring
Right & left thru, then turn 'em around
4 ladies chain right across the town
Heads veer right, gents will hook on

(active couples go right, gents hook left, form weather vane)

Spread the line as you travel along
Gals duck under, turn back when you're under
Go spinning on the Robert E. Lee

(Harlem Rossette figure)

Ladies chain to your man
Circle 4 on the side of the land
Once and a half, sides break to a line
Forward and back while you keep in time
Pass thru, gents will face right, swing her
Swing the girl with all of your might
Promenade home, go sailing on the levee
Swinging on the Robert E. Lee


TAG

I don't mean maybe
Swinging on the Robert E. Lee

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

All round your corner girl, see saw your pet
Gents star right, turn the gal across the set
Put her on your right and form a ring
And around the ring you go
Whirlaway a 1/2 sashay
And circle left you know
Whirlaway, go right & left grand
Around the big old ring
Right hand round your partner
Promenade that pretty little thing
If you've got the same gal hangin' around
Don't blame it all on me


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Head 2 couples forward, come back to the ring
Cross trail and turn back, the opposite lady swing
Face in the middle and pass thru
Go round just one you know
Star by the right in the middle of the set
Around the ring you go
Then allemande left your corner
Allemande right your own
Box the flea with the corner
Promenade that corner home
If you've got a new gal hangin' around
Don't blame it all on me

Waiting For The Robert E. Lee
 
 

Way down on the levy in old Alabamy
There's Daddy and Mammy
There's Ephraim and Sammy
On a moonlight night you can find them all
While they are waiting,
The banjos are syncopating

What's that they're saying?
What's that they're saying?
While they keep playing
A - humming and swaying
It's the good ship Robert E. Lee that's come to carry the cotton away!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along!
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy,
I said to the levy, and join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

The whistles are blowing, the smokestacks are showing
The ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going
To the place where all is harmonious
Even the preacher, he is the dancing teacher!
Have you been down there? Were you around there?
If you ever go there you'll always be found there,
Why, dog-gone, here comes my baby on the good old Robert E. Lee!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,
And join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

Composed by Lewis F. Muir.

Don't Blame It All On Me
 
 

If our love should fade like a cold winter day
Don't blame it all on me
Their true love has flown I have known friends will say
Don't blame it all on me

There was a time dear when we were so gay
I heard you say love only you
But some day with the dawn all our love may be gone
Don't blame it all on me

Now you left and know all our love is so wrong
Don't blame it all on me
For there was a time when our love was a song
Don't blame it all on me

For after all dear I too have a heart
You have it now don't break it apart
Someday our romance may break up just by chance
But don't blame it all on me

You just can't go on with no smile in your heart
Don't blame it all on me
Our friends they all say that we too soon must part
Don't blame it all on me

Now if you'll change dear I will change too
And maybe then we'll find love anew
Someday with the dawn all our love may be gone
But don't blame it all on me

Lyrics by Curt Barrett and Charles Wilkins.
Recorded by Roy Rogers; Tex Ritter; Mac Wiseman; many others.
