OPENER



Grand Square
Harry Truman was our president
A coke and burger cost you thirty cents
I was still in love with Mavis Brown
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town, Allemande and Weave
I Love Lucy debuted on TV
That was one big event we didn't see
Cause no one stayed at home for miles around
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town

FIGURE


Heads you promenade and travel halfway around you go
Side two couples square thru four hands there you know
Go all the way and do the right and left thru
Eight Chain Six Across You Do
Jambalya, Cheatin' Heart he sang into the night
Swing the corner lady, and Promenade all right
The effect on all our lives was quite profound
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town

MIDDLE BREAK



Grand Square
A thousand people sweltered in the gym
Then I heard someone whisper hey, that's him
That's when the crowd let out this deafening sound
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town, Allemande and Weave

On and on he called into the night
The Auctioneer and Faded Love Just right
The effect on all our lives was quite profound
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town

CLOSER


Circle Left
Mavis had her picture made with Flip outside his car
She said he sure is humble for a Kirkwood calling star
Left Allemande your Corner, Dosado
Allemande Left and Weave The Ring You Know
Flip signed lots of autographs and then kissed all the girls
Swing your lady once around and Promenade You Whirl
The effect on all our lives was quite profound
The Night That Marshall Flippo Came To Town

 

Yessiree, the hall was packed that night.

Folks came from miles around just to dance
to the One and Only Marshall Flippo
