Little Farther Down The Road

OPENER    Plus

Head ladies center teacup chain
When I get back to Charlotte once again
It's good to know he's waiting there to let me in
Those Ashville lights tempt me to rest my load
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

Left allemande that corner, dosado
Left allemande just once again and promeno
Those Ashville lights tempt me to rest my load
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road


FIGURE    C4, no progression

Heads curlique, the boys run right
Curlique with the outside two, scoot back tonight
Now boys run to the right and star thru
Dive thru, square thru 3 hands you do
Left allemande that corner, dosado
Left allemande just once again and promeno
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little father down the road


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle to the left
When I get back to Charlotte once again
It's good to know he's waiting there to let me in

Left allemande that corner, dosado
Four men star left around you go
Turn thru at home, left allemande
Go back and swing your girl and promenade that land
Those Ashville lights tempt me to rest my load
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    C4, corner progression

Now heads curlique, the boys run right
Dosado the outside two and make a wave
Boys fold behind the girl, now peel the top
Boys trade, boys run and bend the line
Left allemande the corner, dosado
Go back and swing the corner girl and promeno
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little father down the road


CLOSER    Plus

All four ladies chain across you go
You turn the girls and chain 'em right on home you know
Left allemande that corner, dosado
Head ladies center teacup chain across you go
My life's an open book the words are free
And there's an empty page right here in Cherokee
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little father down the road
