Reach Out And Touch A Hand
The Staple Singers; Oak Ridge Boys 1973
  (Ute 34)   Wayne Crawford

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Can't you feel it in your bones now
A change is coming on
From every walk of life
All people seeing the light

All four ladies promenade inside the ring
Get back and swing your man around and promenade
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway round
Walk into the middle square thru four hands
Go all the way around then go right & left thru
Veer to the left, ferris wheel
Center 4 touch 1/4, box circulate twice
Swing that corner, promenade
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway round
Walk into the middle square thru four hands
Go all the way around then go right & left thru
Veer to the left, ferris wheel
Pass the ocean, explode your wave
Swing corner and promenade
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


TAG

Bow to your partner, corners all
You've made a friend with this old call
