THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND ME
Some callers so time this call that they manage to insert the line:
Swing that girl, that pretty little girl} Oh, swing that girl behind you.
THE EXPLANATION:
1.   See page 148 for directions or substitute any introduction given there.
2.   a) First couple advances to second couple.
b)   Who separate so that the first couple can pass between them. Each dancer balances by taking a step back­ward and making a deep bow to his partner, and then turns back to face the opposite. The first gentleman swings the second lady and the second gentleman swings the first lady.
c)   The first gentleman and second lady now pass between the second gentleman and the first lady. Each of these pairs bow and turn and each gentleman then swings his own partner.
d)   See page 160 for directions or for variations of this call.
e)   First couple advances to third couple and repeats from (b) ; next to fourth couple; and at last return to places.
3.   See page 159 for directions and for other calls of this type which can be alternated in the repetitions if desired.
