American Square Dances
Fours to the Right; Call
First and Third out to the right with a Right and Left Through, - and a Right and Left back;-         - now the
Two Ladies Chain across the track, Turn 'em around and you chain right back
When you're back to your place again, Join your hands and form two rings. Ring up four and make them go, When you get right we'll Do-si-do. Partners left and Corners right, Swing those girls, don't take all night; One more change and one more swing, Balance home and everybody Swing.           -         -         -
Four Ladies Chain across the floor, and Chain those pretty girls back once more. Meet your Honey in the hall, All you folks listen to the call.
Chorus On the Corner with your left hand, a Right to your Partner, Right and Left Grand. Corn in the crib and wheat in the sack, Meet your Honey and turn right back with a Right Hand Swing on that old back-track.
Grand Right and Left 'till you meet again, Turn right back with a Right Hand Swing. Keep on going 'till you meet your own, and Promenade your Honey home. Promenade around the town, and Keep that calico off the ground.
Repeat the call with the Second and Fourth Couples leading
the dance.
