Description

Les Gotcher was one of the early full-time traveling callers. He was known as the "Hash Master" and this clip from a 1958 dance illustrates how appropriate that term is.

Walk All Around the left hand lady
See Saw 'round your pretty little taw
Allemande Left about like that
Back to your partner, Double the Gnat
You Box it over and Box it back
And you pull her by to the Right Hand Lady
For an Allemande Thar
You back up boys in a right hand star
Shoot that star to the next little girl
For a Wagon Wheel and give her a whirl
Now catch her by the left Dos Paso
That's her by the left, Corner by the right
Her by the left and star by the right
That's a back up boys in the middle of the night
Shoot that star with a full turn around
With a right to the corner and pull her by
And skip the next.
Allemande Left, the old left hand
And here we go a Right and Left Grand
Hand over hand a right and left grand
You Promenade don't slow down
Now keep on going don't slow down
