Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Won't you come with me, Lucille
In my merry Oldsmobile

Allemande left the corner, turn partner by the right
Girls star left once inside tonight
Turn partner right, men star left once inside the set
Swing your girl and promenade that pet
You can go as far as you like with me
In my merry Oldsmobile


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 pass the ocean, recycle with that pet
Square thru 3 hands, in the center of the set
Pass the ocean again, recycle to a line
Step to a wave, swing thru and then without a stop
Spin the top for me, move it up, extend the tag
Swing the corner girl and drive back home
You can go as far as you like with me
In my merry Oldsmobile


CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Won't you come with me, Lucille, in my merry Oldsmobile
Down the road of life we'll fly, automobubbling, you and I

Allemande left the corner, box the gnat at home
Pull by, left allemande and drive back home

Merry Oldsmobile
 
 

Young Johnnie Steele has an Oldsmobile
He loves a dear little girl
She is the queen of his gas machine
She has his heart in a whirl
Now when they go for a spin, you know
She tries to learn his auto, so
He lets her steer while he gets her ear
And whispers soft and low

Chorus:
Come away with me Lucille in my merry Oldsmobile
Down the road of life we'll fly automo-bubbling you and I
To the church we'll swiftly steal, then our wedding bells will peal
You can go as far you like with me, in my merry Oldsmobile

They love to spark in the dark old park
As they go flying along
She says she knows why his motor goes
His sparker's awfully strong
Each day they spoon to the engine's tune
Their honeymoon will happen soon
He'll win Lucille with his Oldsmobile
And then he'll fondly croon

Come away with me Lucille in my merry Oldsmobile
Down the road of life we'll fly automo-bubbling you and I
To the church we'll swiftly steal, then our wedding bells will peal
You can go as far you like with me, in my merry Oldsmobile

Come away Lucille, 'cause if I may Lucille
I want to take you for my bride
And we'll chug along and always sing a song
As down the road of life we fly
Even though my car is old and squeaky now
It's better than a horse or train
When I pull the throttle out and put her into third
You think you're in a plane

To the church we're heading for a quiet wedding
Then I'll crank her up and take the wheel
And away we'll go my honey, they will know my honey
That our love is real
You can go as far you like with me, in my merry Oldsmobile
My merry Oldsmobile.

Composed by Gus Edwards.
Lyrics by Vincent Bryan.
Recorded by Bing Crosby.
