Not original to me, but I needed to put this up for people dancing at a Playford Ball of mine.

Note that Cecil Sharp substituted a different tune for this dance (Daphne), which is a different length!  This is due to his systematic interpretation of a single hey starting in couple-facing couple as a circular hey – which takes a different amount of time.

Part 1
A1,2 (8) Lead your partner in to meet the other couple a double and back twice
B1 (4) Lead your partner in to meet the other couple with a double (2)
Lead your contrary away from your partner with a double (2)
B2 (4) Lead your contrary back to meet your partner with a double (2)
Fall back a double with your partner (2)
C1,2 (8) Men pass left shoulder to start a full hey for four
Part 2
A1,2 (8) Side right and left with your partner
B1,2 (8) As before
C1,2 (8) As before
Part 3
A1,2 (8) Arm right and left with your partner
B1,2 (8) As before
C1,2 (8) As before
