This tune (which was mentioned in a recent discussion) is used for a square dance of the same name.
Note that the total tune length of 32 bars is achieved without any repeats.
Bars 1-16 are played for the "figure" of the dance: bars 17-32 are played for the "chorus" of the dance.
However, some callers begin the dance with the chorus - so if this is the case, you may required to start it at bar #17.
Tune apparently composed by Kerry Mills in 1907, and based on "Fröhlicher Landmann, von der Arbeit zurückkehrend" from Album für die Jugend, Op.68 by Schumann (No 10). The lyrics - Red Wing (An Indian Fable) - were written by Thurland Chattaway.
Thanks for sending in this tune, Mix O’Lydian. I had been listening to all the versions of it on YouTube and want to learn the tune. Thanks too for the advice about using it as a square dance. Will mention it to our band caller. You also encourage me to learn ABC to turn it into "dots".
Weejie, thanks to you too for all the other information.
Red Wing - Redwing?
Interesting information, Weejie - but that doesn’t seem to be the same tune.
Glad to be of assistance, gemtrimmer!
For your interest (or that of your caller) here is a link to the Redwing dance instructions, which include the lyrics of the singing call.
