Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies promenade, one time you go
Get on back and swing that pretty little boy you know
Join hands and circle left, go walking round the land
Left allemande that corner, grand right & left you go
Grand right & left you go, when you meet your maid
Dosado, it's back to back, then you promenade
Promenade go walking round, take that lady right up town
Walk and talk with a pretty little girl named Sweet Georgia Brown


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

1st and 3rd you promenade halfway around
Into the middle and square thru 4 hands around
Pull 'em thru, go right & left thru with the outside two so grand
Dive thru, pass thru, left allemande
Grand ole right & left, go walking that ole ring
Dosado your own, and the corner lady swing
Swing that lady, promenade, go two by two that way
Walk and talk with a pretty little girl named Sweet Georgia Brown

Sweet Georgia Brown
 
 

She just got here yesterday
Things are hot here, now they say
There's a big change in town
Gals are jealous, there's no doubt
Still the fellows rave about
Sweet, sweet Georgia Brown
And ever since she came the colored folks all claim, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she coos 'em down
Fellers she can't get are fellers she ain't met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her
Sweet Georgia Brown

Brownskin gals you'll get the blues
Brownskin pals you'll surely lose
And there's but one excuse
Now I've told you who she was
And I've told you what she does
Hand this gal her dues
This color'd maiden's pray'r is answer'd anywhere, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

All those tips the porter slips to sweet Georgia Brown
They buy clothes at fashion shows with one dollar down
Oh boy, tips your hats, oh joy, she's the "Cat's"
Who's that mister? T'ain't her sister! Sweet Georgia Brown

Composed by Maceo Pinkard.
Lyrics by Kenneth Casey.
Recorded by Ben Bernie; Brother Bones And His Shadows; Django Reinhardt; many others.
