LOW DOWN HOEDOWN

 

An “accumulation” by Marvin Shilling from La Veda, Colorado

All around the left hand lady – right back home and swing your baby

Swing your honey high and low – now allemande left with your left hand

Right to your honey and right and left grand – corn in the crib, wheat in the stack

Meet your honey and turn right back – go the other way the same old track

Up the river and around the bend – gonna meet your honey gonna pull her by

Give a left to the next – allemande left a right and left grand

Every other girl with every other hand – meet your honey on t’other side

Gonna promenade go high and wide – promenade two by two

Right back home like you always do


Allemande left and the ladies star – the men run around the outside bar

Then allemande left and the men all star – girls run around but not too far

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Ladies star left, the men promenade the wrong way around

Meet your honey with a right hand around – allemande left when you come down

And weave the ring go ‘round and ‘round – weave them in and weave them out

Gonna meet your honey – sashay partner one and all


Allemande left and allemande U – right to your honey and left to the next

Turn back two – with a right to your honey a left to the next

Turn all the way around – four little ladies chain across they go

To the opposite man for a do-si-do (do-pa-so) – corner lady with a right hand so

Back to your honey with a once and a half – all the way ‘round to the right hand lady

With a wagon wheel give her a spin and pass her by – left to the next girl do-si-do (do-pa-so)

Back to the corner with a right hand so– back to your honey with a left hand ‘round

Once and a half to the right hand lady with a wagon wheel – give a whirl and watch her spin

Left to the next for a do-si-do (do-pa-so) – back to the corner with a right hand ‘round

Back to your honey with a left hand whirl and you give her a wheel

Left to the next for a do-si-do (do-pa-so)

Back to your honey with a left hand ‘round – go once and a half

The right hand lady for a wagon wheel – give her a whirl and you give her a wheel –

Left to the next for a do-si-do (do-pa-so) – back to the corner with a right hand ‘round

Back to your own for a left hand ‘round – go all the way ‘round

The four men star to the opposite girl – Left hand ‘round the pretty little Jane

All the way around to the corner right – gonna pull her by

Swing the next girl on the fly – swing that lady in the bye and bye


Allemande left and allemande G – right and left and turn back three

Go right and left and right once more – turn all the way around

Gents star left, leave the ladies there – go all the way around

Go the other way back with a right hand star – star by the right around you go

Pass that girl – allemande left your corner – sashay ‘round your own

Go back and swing the corner girl – just like she was your own

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Go back and swing the corner girl – just like she was your own

Allemande left and allemande U – go right and left and turn back two

With a right and a left turn all the way ‘round – the gents star right across you go

Your partner left for a do-si-do (do-pa-so) – It’s partner left and corner right

Back to your honey and promenade – promenade two by two

You know where and I do too – right off the floor ‘cause you’re all through
