Alabama Gal


Lyrics

Come through in a hurry (repeat twice)
Alabama Gal

I don’t know how, how…

I’ll show you how, how…

Ain’t I rock candy…


Dance

Formation: Students form two lines facing each other.

Verse 1: Head couple join hands and sashay down between the two lines, then return back where they started.

Verses 2-4: All students turn to face the head couple. The head person on the left turns left, and the head person on the right turns right with all of the students following around. They walk toward the foot of the line. When the head couple reaches the foot of the line, they join hands high over their heads, and the other couples go underneath and return to their original spots. There is now a new head couple, and the dance begins again.

Optional: This can be danced like the Virginia Reel. (See instructions.)
