Originally published in 1902 for piano with narration (words, music and dance instructions all by Joplin). Although mentioned on page two the “complete directions for all the steps of the 'Ragtime Dance'” have not survived. This original edition sold poorly and four years later in 1906 a piano solo arrangement was created with its first strain taken from the second dance section of the 1902 song.
