Tiger By The Tail   (MacGregor 2303)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain across and you turn that lady fair
Chain the lady back 3/4 round now
Men, bunch the lady back to back, boys promenade outside
(But only go half way)
Find the corner, do an allemande left (full turn)
Meet partner, grand right & left, when you meet your partner promenade her
I'm as lost as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 go right & left thru, you turn a little girl and then (backaway)
Sides pass thru, separate around one, make a line
Forward up and back, then pass thru
Tag the line, face into the middle and then
Center four Go right & left thru, turn 'em now, pass the ocean there
Everybody pass thru and the corner swing, promenade
I'm as lost as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Four ladies chain straight across, turn that girl and then
Rollaway, circle to the left my friend
(Do an) allemande left then allemande thar, go forward two and star
Men back up and you're gonna move it round the land
Now slip the clutch, allemande left, grand right & left you go
When you meet that lady promenade her
I'm as lost as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
