Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle to the left
Well, I left my little bright eyed doll
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside, down by the riverside

Do an allemande left and an allemande thar, go forward two and star
Men back up in a right hand star
Shoot that star, go all the way around, you pull the partner by
Allemande left that corner girl, swing the partner, promenade
Well, I left my little bright eyed doll
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

The head two couples promenade 3/4 round the square
Side pair go right & left thru, turn that lady there
You slide thru, curlique, do a walk & dodge
Star thru, then do a right & left thru
Why don't you slide thru, box the gnat, hang on man
Right & left grand, go walking round the land
You promenade that square, promenade that lady there
Down by the riverside

Down By The Riverside (Study War No More)
 
 

I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
I'm gonna study war no more

* I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more
I ain't a gonna study war no more, I ain't a gonna study war no more

Well, I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside (Oh)
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna put on my long white robe, (Where?) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Well, I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (Where?) down by the riverside
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield, (A-ha) down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more

* Repeat

Lyrics by unknown; traditional.
Recorded by Pete Seeger; many others.
