American Dream
Hank Williams, Jr. 1982
  (Quadrille 821)   Wiley Hutchinson

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go one time around
Why, get along home swing, you swing your man around
You join your hands, circle to the left around the ring you go
Left allemande the corner and weave the ring you know
Do we really want it? Do we really need it?
Dosado her and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The head (side) two couples square thru four hands around you know
All the way to the corner and do a dosado
Touch 1/4 and scoot back and go
Boys run around your girl and square thru tonight
3/4 around now, swing your corner
Left allemande and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Plus

Do an allemande left and all eight spin the top
Turn your partner right, girls star left 3/4 round
When you meet, spin it again, turn her right
Boys star left 3/4, when you meet turn thru
Do an allemande left, swing and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

The head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands around you know
All the way to the corner and do a dosado
Once around and make an ocean wave
Relay the deucey (let 16 beats go by)
Swing corner and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream
