Title The Old Dance Hall
Description We two-stepped and one-stepped, did fox trot and waltz, And the shimmy we shook in between. Did the Charleston and mixers with grand right and left, When dancing at Fiddlers' Green, But the old days are gone, now we rock in our chairs And remember the times in our dreams, When we whirled and high-stepped with such beautiful girls, While dancing at Fiddlers' Green. Source: Vivid recollections of the author. * * * THE OLD DANCE HALL Wilford Wheeler 1084 North State Street Fairview, UT 84629 Second Place Poetry Come on down, come one and all Next Saturday night to the old dance hall. Now choose you a partner and don't stand still Come dance with the gang in a plain quadrille; A waltz, a two-step, a fox-trot, too; But don't miss the dance, whatever you do! We'll hire a fiddler and he'll fiddle all night And we'll play and dance by the coal oil light. We'll just pay a ticket of twenty-five cents The ladies won't pay, but only the gents. Bring all your children and bring out your wife Come join with us for the time of your life. Now when we gathered on Saturday night And the lights were lighted but not too bright, Now to start things out without any flaw The fiddler tuned up with "Turkey in the Straw," We'd all choose a partner and join with all And listen and swing to the caller's call, 36
