BODY

Heads go right & left thru
Sides a dosado for you
Right hand star like a paddle wheel
Kicking up a spray
Be sure to turn it once around
Reverse the other way
Full around come out
Right & left thru
Dive thru, pass thru
Swing a girl that's new
Keep this little maiden
Do some promenading
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee


MIXER

Head couples star thru
Then right & left thru
Turn them and then you
Pass thru and split two
Make a line, move it up and back again
Box the gnat across the land
Right (pull by) & left allemande
Grand right & left and
You'll meet your pet and
Do a little dosado-ing
Then it's home you're going
Great fun my
Honey-bun a
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee

Waiting For The Robert E. Lee
 
 

Way down on the levy in old Alabamy
There's Daddy and Mammy
There's Ephraim and Sammy
On a moonlight night you can find them all
While they are waiting,
The banjos are syncopating

What's that they're saying?
What's that they're saying?
While they keep playing
A - humming and swaying
It's the good ship Robert E. Lee that's come to carry the cotton away!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along!
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy,
I said to the levy, and join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

The whistles are blowing, the smokestacks are showing
The ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going
To the place where all is harmonious
Even the preacher, he is the dancing teacher!
Have you been down there? Were you around there?
If you ever go there you'll always be found there,
Why, dog-gone, here comes my baby on the good old Robert E. Lee!

Watch them shuffling along,
See them shuffling along
Go take your best gal, real pal
Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,
And join that shuffling throng
Hear that music and song!
It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy
Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

Composed by Lewis F. Muir.
Lyrics by L. Wolfe Gilbert.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland; Dean Martin; many others.
