Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Me and Big Don, we were getting it on
In a club down in New Orleans
When it was over we got half loaded
We picked up a couple of Queens

Swing her
Four ladies promenade, go one time around
Come home and swing that man around, promenade
Promenade her home, move her on around
Get it on around that town


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around
With that corner do a curlique
Walk & dodge, then a partner trade
A flutter wheel around will do
Square thru 3/4, find that corner
Swing, do a left allemande and promenade
We were really loaded when the law came in
And took us to the County jail


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They took us before the judge bright and early next morning
Was a swinger right to the end
Said I'm gonna tell you, son, just like it is
And you can tell it to your skinny friend


*Don't you be messing with Big John Law, son
It just ain't the thing to do
If you gonna mess with Big John Law, then
He ain't a-gonna mess with you


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads square thru 4 hands around
And with that corner do a dosado, curlique
Cast off 3/4, make an ocean wave
Then a spin chain thru you know, girls circulate
Find that corner and swing
Do a left allemande and promenade


TAG

That'll be a hundred dollars, get out of Louisiana
And I never wanta see you again
