A          C#7       F#7
Charleston, Charleston, made in Carolina
B7          E9          A6    F#               E7
Some dance, some prance, I'll say there's nothing finer than the
Charleston, Charleston, Lord how you can shuffle
C#m               G#7                     
Ev'ry step you do leads to something new,
C#7                  E7
Man I'm telling you, it's a lapazoo,

Buck dance, wing dance, will be a back number,
But the Charleston, the new Charleston, that dance is surely a comer,
A       7                D       Dm
Sometime, you'll dance it one time, the dance called
A6       F# E7                   A   (7 D Dm A)
Charleston, --- made in South Caroline.

["Dance sensation that best typified the flamingly youthful spirit of the 1920's was the high-kicking Charleston, which also happened to be the name of a song. Introduced in the 1923 all-Negro revue Runnin' Wild, the dance very soon replaced the shimmy as the favorite gyrational exercise in ballrooms across the nation" -- Reader's Digest Family Songbook (1969)]
