Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left on the Sloop John B
Girls star right 3/4 you see
Find your corner, courtesy turn
Join your hands, circle left you will go
4 ladies roll away
We were drinking all day
Allemande left, come back and swing
We were fighting all night
Promenade around the ring
And I feel so broke up I want to go home


FIGURE (1)    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru and go
Sides 1/2 sashay, gonna meet someone
Swing thru, boys run right
Go right & left thru, turn your girl
Pass thru, bend the line
You pass the ocean, two ladies trade
Swing the man and then you all promenade
I feel so broke up I want to go home


FIGURE (2)   

Sides pass thru, separate round one make lines,
Pass thru and then wheel & deal
Girls square thru 3 hands
Boys reach and get her, courtesy turn, you make a line
Pass thru, bend the line
You pass the ocean, girls trade
Swing him and promenade everyone
I feel so broke up I want to go home


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Now circle left
Hoist up the John B sail, see how the mainsail's set
The boys star right one time around you will go
Left allemande and weave
We were drinking all day
Turn thru, left allemande
Come back, swing and promenade
And I feel so broke up I want to go home


TAG

4 ladies chain across and back
I feel so broke up I want to go home
Go up to the middle and back
You bow to the partner and the corner too

The John B. Sails (aka "The Sloop John B.")
 
 

We come on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

The first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Cap'n's trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don't you let me go home

Hoist up the John B
I feel so broke up I wanna go home
Let me go home

The poor cook he caught the fits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don't they let me go home
This is the worst trip I've ever been on

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don't you let me go home

Lyrics by Lee Hays and Carl Sandburg.
Recorded by The Kingston Trio; The Weavers; The Beach Boys; many others.
