Royal Telephone   (B Bar H 20004)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Telephone to glory, oh what joy divide
I can feel the current moving on the line
Made by God the Father for His very own
You can talk to Jesus

Four ladies chain
Central's never busy
Chain the lady back
Turn a little girl and promenade go round the track
*It is a royal service, made for one and all
When you get in trouble, give this royal line a call


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*There will be no waiting on this royal line
Telephone to glory always answers just in time


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) right & left thru turn a little girl and then
Square thru 4, side (head) two half sashay
Everybody swing thru, all the boys run to the right
And then a right & left thru, turn tonight
Pass thru, wheel & deal, the center two
Pass thru, swing the corner and promenade you do
*It is a royal service, made for one and all
When you get in trouble, give this royal line a call
