Traditional USA Georgia Sea Islands
When Kathy saw Doug Quimby, of the Georgia Sea Island Singers, teach this, he emphasized the historic meaning of this dance. He said that the hand claps (done with cupped hands as if forming bricks) were reminders of how slaves were forced to make bricks. The finger wagging was to remind people to remember how hard they had to work.

Lyrics

(first time only)
Way down yonder in the brickyard, Stand in front of partner clap hands.
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.
Way down yonder in the brickyard, Clap hands.
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.


1. Way down yonder in the brickyard, Walk around the room looking for your new partner clap hands as you walk.
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.
Way down yonder in the brickyard,
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.

2. Step it step it step it down, Clap hands and dance in place.
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.
Step it step it step it down,
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.

3. Take your love and turn her round Hook right elbows and turn around once.
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.
Take your love and turn her round Hook left elbows and turn the other way around .
Remember me? Wag finger at your partner.
