Help Me Make It Through The Night
Kris Kristofferson 1969
  (Lore 1231)   Dick Demeritt

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Take those ribbons from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Lie it soft against your skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Four ladies chain across that ring
Chain those ladies home again, promenade
It's so sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru and go
To the corner, dosado
Swing thru two by two, boys run
You bend the line, and right & left thru
And turn the girl, pass the ocean, recycle
Swing that corner girl and promenade
It's so sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Sides face, grand square
Come and lay down by my side
Till the early morning light
I'll take nothing but your time
Help me make it through the night

Four ladies chain across that ring
Chain 'em back, promenade
I'll take nothing but your time
Help me make it through the night


TAG

No I don't want to be alone
Help me make it through the night
