Lyrics and Chords (.pdf)

I wrote this song in January, 2008 as a tribute to swing dancing and the swing dancing instructors I studied with in 2001 and 2007 in the Washington, DC area.

The song mentions several styles of swing dancing and the names of some of the instructors I studied with. I apologize if I left anyone out. There are many more styles and many more instructors, even in the DC area.

It is my hope that people around the world will write more verses to this song and mention more styles of swing dancing and more teachers, who deserve all the credit for their creativity, hard work, and dedication in bringing this joyous activity to so many people.
