Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK   

Now four ladies chain about 3/4 round I say
Turn the girl, eight to the middle and then back away
All four ladies grand chain, turn the girl again
Sides face, grand square, 'bout eight steps my friend
You got a boogie woogie boy, Chattanoogie shoe shine boy
Reverse
*Have you ever passed the corner of Fourth and Grand?
Why meet your partner, curlique, those boys run and then
Left allemande your corner, gonna dosado
Swing the corner lady, now you all promenade
You got a boogie woogie boy, Chattanoogie shoe shine boy


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) right & left thru, turn the girl
And then same two cross trail, go round one my friend
Why make a line of 4, gonna move it up and back
Go right & left thru, turn a little girl and then, star thru
You're gonna eight chain 5, count five hands, three, four,

You got a boogie woogie boy, Chattanoogie shoe shine boy

Chattanooga Shoe Shine Boy Lyrics ID: 1491

Have you ever passed the corner of Fourth and Grand
Where a little ball of rhythm has a shoe shine stand?
People gather 'round and they clap their hands
He's a great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

He charges you a nickel just to shine one shoe
He makes the oldest kind of leather look like new
You feel as though you want to dance when he gets through
He's a great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

It's a wonder that the rag don't tear the way he makes it pop
You ought to see him fan the air
With his hoppity hippity hoppity hippity hop-hop-hop!

He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get 'em early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise and shine
From the great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

It's a wonder that the rag don't tear the way he makes it pop
You ought to see him fan the air
With his hoppity hippity hoppity hippity hop-hop-hop!

He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get 'em early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise and shine
From the great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

The Chattanooga shoe shine boy

Lyrics by Harry Stone and Jack Stapp.
Recorded by Red Foley; Freddy Cannon; Leon McAuliffe.

Interesting application of Grand Square (do 8 steps then reverse it)
