Nelly Bly Allemande originated by Bill Shilling of Taos, New Mexico, and called by Marvin Shilling from Trinidad, Colorado

Western Jubilee 571A


1. All join hands and run to the middle

And pat your foot to the tune of the fiddle

One-two-three-four rare right back and stretch your vest

And swing the girl you love the best

Then allemande left like all the rest

Partner right – right and left grand, and promenade


2. Ladies to the center and back to the bar

Gents to the center and a right hand star

Go all the way ‘round pass your partner

And allemande left with Nelly Bly (corner, L.H. lady)

Right to your partner and pass her by

Swing the next girl on the fly (R.H. lady)

Promenade her to the by and by (promenade home)


3. Repeat No. 2 above


4. Promenade in single file, lady in the lead Indian style

Gents turn back and swing a little while

Promenade in single file, lady in the lead Indian style

Gents turn back and swing a little while

Allemande left and allemande thar, right and left and form a star

Gents back up but not too far

Break in the center with a full turn around (once and a half)

To your original partner with a right hand around like an allemande thar

Into the center with a left hand star and

The gents back up but not too far

Swing right around with a right hand swing to the corner lady

And allemande left like a rope on a calf

Meet your partner with a once and a half (elbow swing)

(swing all girls with an elbow swing until you meet your partner again and promenade home)


5. Head two ladies chain across the set

Side two ladies chain across the set

All four ladies star by the right go once and a half around

Meet your original partner with a left hand around for a do-si-do

(do-si-do until caller says promenade)


6. All around your left hand lady – see-saw ‘round your taw

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Go back and swing that corner girl as if she were your own

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Go back and swing that corner girl as if she were your own

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Go back and swing that corner girl as if she were your own

Allemande left your corner – allemande right your own

Go back and swing that corner girl as if she were your own


7. Ladies to the center and back to the bar

Gents to the center with a right hand star

Back with the left you’ve gone too far

Pick up partners as you come around

Ladies swing in with a full turn around

And the girls star right in the center of the town

Gents step off as your own home position

Ladies keep going with a right hand star

Pick up your own partner as you go by

Gents swing in with a full turn around

And star by the right and the ladies stop off at home position

Gents keep going with a right hand star go all the way around

And meet your partner with a left for a do-si-do

(do-si-do until caller says promenade)


Note: do-si-do and do-pa-so are the same
