An “accumulation” called by Marvin Shilling from La Veta, Colorado

Western Jubilee 578A


Grab your girl, swing real hard, stay right there in your own back yard

Then allemande left with your left hand – walk right in to a right and left grand

Go right foot up and left foot down – meet a little lady and truck on down

Promenade go two by two – right back home like you always do


First and third forward and back – second and fourth forward and back

Head two couples right and left through – side two couples right and left through

Head two couples right and left back – side two couples lead to the right

Circle four with all your might – side men break and make two lines

Go forward eight and back – go forward again and cross trail through

Allemande left that’s what you do – grand right eight and you go a few

Right and left go ‘round the ring – meet that gal and you promenade

Keep on going, don’t slow down – promenade that gal around


First and third let’s wheel around – right and left through – turn right back

Cross trail through and allemande left and you’re not through

Promenade with your own little girl

Take your lady and keep on going, do not stop – two and four wheel around, now pass through

Go to the next, right and left through and turn right back

Pass through and go to the next – cross trail through

Do a left allemande and a right to your honey for a wagon wheel

Wagon wheel and give it a whirl, and roll that wagon round and round


Now ladies in a full turn around – ladies chain across that town

Chain across, don’t be slow – chain right back across you go

Turn ‘em left like an allemande thar – men back up in a right hand star

Then break in the middle with a full turn around – men star right three quarters around

Allemande left with your left hand – right to your girlie a right and left grand

Well, meet that gal and ain’t she nice – promenade to paradise


Put her in the lead, single file – lady in the lead go ‘bout a mile

Men turn back and swing a little while – now promenade one more time in single file

Make a wheel and roll it along – now men, you turn right out and go the other way

And meet that girl and box the gnat – then promenade from where you’re at

Promenade go two by two – right back home and don’t be blue


Now first and third go forward and back – now forward again and box the gnat

Now pull her by, cross trail through and go around one

Down through the middle and box the gnat

Then you pull her by – cross trail through and go ‘round one

Down through the middle with a right and left through and turn right around

Cross trail back go around the outside, go around two – and you meet that gal, that’s what you do


Walk right by – allemande left and allemande O

Go right and left and do-si-do (do-pa-so), it’s back to the corner with a right

Then back to your honey with a left, go all the way around

The men star right across you go – and a do-si-do (do-pa-so) and a little more dough

And the corner girl with a right, then back to your honey gonna promenade

Gonna take that gal don’t be afraid

Promenade eight and promenade all – right back home and don’t you fall


Now ladies center and back to the bar – and the men to the middle with a right hand star

Go all the way ‘round, and the other way back and you don’t fall down

Now meet your honey, pass her by – go all the way ‘round go on the fly

Pick up your own girl on the fly, you take that gal to the by and by

Now ladies in a full turn around – the gals gonna chain across that town

Turn ‘em once and a half around – men star, star by the right three quarters around

Allemande left and a right to your girl and promenade go around the world

Promenade that’s all she rote – take your honey to a chair – we done finished with another square
