Cue Sheet


Allemande left, four ladies star, once around but not too far
Allemande left, the gents star right 3/4 round
Turn your partner allemande thar, back on in a right hand star
Gents swing out, ladies chain 3/4 round
Allemande left, box the gnat with your maid
Swing her round and round, and then you promenade
She's the prettiest girl I've ever seen, so let me tell you friend
You better shut that gate and never let me in

FIGURE    C4, unknown progression

2 & 4 go right & left thru (backaway), 1 & 3 lead to
the right

Circle 4, head gents break and make a line
Forward 8 and back you whirl, you pass thru across that world
Centers arch, dixie twirl*, cross trail thru
Allemande left your corner, your partner right
hand swing

Box the flea with the corner girl, promenade that ring
**Say what you doing with my gal, I thought that we were friends
I'm gonna shut my gate, and never let you in


**She's been runnin around, with all those other men
You ought to shut that gate, and never let her in

**How come you're dancing with my gal, I thought that we were friends
I'm gonna shut my gate and never let you in

*Dixie twirl is done from any even numbered line of 4 or more people. It
resembles a California Twirl if done by couples. In this dance the line of 4 is
facing out and all join hands. The center couple makes an arch in the middle (inside
gent and inside lady) and while the left hand couple walks forward and around the
right hand couple (with the outside lady in the lead) ducks under the arch and pulls
the line straight to face back into the ring facing the opposite line.
