Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
* Put on that old grey bonnet, with that blue ribbon on it,
While I hitch old Dobbin to the shay

Left allemande the corner, dosado
Allemande left and weave the ring
Put on that old grey bonnet, with that blue ribbon on it
Swing and promenade
And through the fields of clover, ride on to Dover
On our golden wedding day


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* On the farm house veranda, there sat Silas and Miranda,
Thinking of the days gone by


* The birds were sweetly singing, and the same old bells were ringing
As they passed the quaint old church where they wed


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade halfway round that ring now
Down the middle pass the ocean, extend, swing thru
Spin the top, and when you're thru do the right & left thru
Square thru 3 hands, get me 3 hands around there
Swing the corner lady, promenade
And thru the fields of clover, ride on to Dover
On our golden wedding day

Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet Lyrics ID: 542

On an old farm house veranda there sat Silas and Miranda
Dreamin' of the days gone by
He said deary don't be weary you're always bright and cheery
Now a tear did dim your eye
She said they're not tears of sadness, Silas
They are tears of gladness
It was fifty years ago the day we wed
Then the old man's dim eyes brighten and his old heart it lightens
As he turned to her and said
Put on your old grey bonnet with all the blue ribbons on it
While I hitch old dobbin' to the shay
Through those fields of clover you'll ride up to Dover on our golden wedding day
Put on your old grey bonnet...
Put on your old grey bonnet...
On our golden wedding day

Lyrics by Perci Wenrich and Stanley Murphy.
Recorded by Pee Wee Hunt (1931); Eddie Tompkins (1937).
