I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)   (Sharpshooter 1004)   Scot Byars
OPENER    Basic

Circle left
**When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you

Left allemande now, you'll dosado go around your own
Allemande left your corner lady, weave the ring
When I go out, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

Promenade
When I'm working, yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) you square thru, four hands around the ring
Meet the corner lady do a dosado, (make a wave)
Swing thru, boys run right around that girl
Ladies trade (in the middle), now tag the line
Girls turn around and swing
Swing that girl and promenade the ring
Just to be the man who'd walk a 1,000 miles
To fall down at your door


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
La La-La-La, La La-La-La
La La La La La La La La La La La
La La-La-La, La La-La-La
La La La La La La La La La La La

Allemande left and weave
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would
meet my girl and swing
Just to be the man who'd walk a 1,000 miles
To fall down at your door


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
**When I come home, oh I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you

Left allemande now, you'll dosado go around your own
Allemande left your corner lady, weave the ring
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who'd walk a 1,000 miles
To fall down at your door


TAG

La La-La-La, La La-La-La
La La La La La La La La La La La


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**And if I grow old, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

**When I'm lonely, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
