Four ladies (boys) promenade go once around that ring Back home swing that man around Join hands and circle, circle to the left go round Do an allemande left and weave the ring Well I am a man of constant sorrow Swing that girl and promenade I bid farewell to old Kentucky The place where I was born and raised
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go Walk in and square thru go four Go all the way around and you do the right & left thru Veer to the left and ferris wheel Well the center two square thru 3/4 round Swing with the corner girl and promenade *I am a man of constant sorrow I've had trouble all my days
*For six long years I've been in trouble *I am a man that's bound to ramble
I've had trouble all my days
