OPENER - CLOSER    Plus

Circle left
*I've held it all inward, Lord knows I've tried
It's an awful awakening in a country boy's life

Allemande your corner, all eight spin the top
Boy move up and box the gnat and weave around the ring
Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two you promenade halfway around the ring
Down the middle and pass the ocean, extend
Spin the top, girl move up and then
Single hinge, boy run around the girl and do a dosado
Swing thru now, swing and whirl the pretty little girl and promenade you do
Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go once around the ring
Gonna get on home and swing the man, now everybody swing
Join your hands and circle to the left and walk around and go
Allemande left with the corner girl and weave the ring you know
Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
Amanda, light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*It's a measure of people who don't understand
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band


TAG

Bow to the partner, corner too
That's it gang, we're through
