Hoist Your Window Way Yonder


(Folk song)

Hoist your window way yonder,
Father’s gone to Lou-sa-na,
Roll-a roll-a way yonder.


Formation: Students stand in two lines with partners facing each other. Students put arms up and join hands to form arches.

When the song starts, the partners at one end go under the arches. As soon as they start to go, the next partners follow, and they all continue like that. Once they reach the end of the arch “tunnel,” they stand at the end and form an arch also.
