First the Heel First the heel, And then the toe, That's the way The polka goes. First the toe, And then the heel, That's the way To dance a reel. Quick about, And then away, Lightly dance The glad Strathspey. Jump a jump, And jump it big, That's the way To dance a jig, Slowly, smiling, As in France, Follow through The country dance. And we'll meet Johnnie Cope in the morning. ________________________________________________________ SC (1948), 108 (no. 174); "Lachlan Gorach's Rhyme", from Mull. MS oct96
