Preacher And Bear
  (Windsor 5039)   Warren Rowles

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*The preacher went out a huntin', shot him a scraggly hare
On the way home he crossed the path of a great big grizzly bear

Left allemande that corner, dosado your own
Left allemande once again, weave the ring you know
Oh, Lord delivered Daniel from the bottom of the lion's den
Oh, Lord
you dosado, all promenade my friend
Scared to death he turned about, looked to the heaven and began to shout
"Oh Lord, if you can't help me, please don't help that bear"


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well, the preacher he began to run and lookin' all around
By the time the bear made a grab for him he was on the ground


*Well, about that time the limb broke off and the preacher came tumblin' down
The bear was lookin' right at him by the time he reached the ground


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru four hands around you know
When you meet that corner, swing thru and go
Boys run right, you tag the line for me
When you're there, all face right, wheel & deal you see
Well, box the gnat, same girl dosado and then
Swing this same little gal around, all promenade, my friend
Scared to death he turned about, looked to the heaven and began to shout
"Oh Lord, if you can't help me, please don't help that bear"
