Dive for the Oyster (clip) - Chris Sanderson


Audio clip of Chris Sanderson calling with the Pocopson Valley Boys, popular caller and band from southeastern Pennsylvania.

Opening figure: Bow to your partner, Bow to your corner, hands all around, the other way, swing that corner gal, swing your own girl, and then first couple goes out to the right.

Sanderson sometimes calls "Dive for the oyster, dig for the clam, dive for your home and a happy land" and sometimes "Dive for the Indian, dive for the squaw, dive for the girl from Arkansas."

The musicians play a medley of tunes including Coming Round the Mountain, I Like Mountain Music, Red River Valley, Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight, and many more.
