Charlie And The MTA   (Silver Sounds 206)   Jack O'Leary, Bruce McCue
OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, let me tell you of the story
Of a man named Charlie
On that tragic and fateful day
He put 10 cents in his pocket
Kissed his wife and family
Went to ride on the M.T.A.

4 ladies promenade
Never returned no he never returned
Swing your lady there and promenade
He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way around now
Walk in & square thru 4, 4 hands around
Do the right & left thru, veer left
Couples circulate, 1/2 tag
Scoot back, scoot back again
Swing the corner lady, promenade
He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Charlie's wife goes down to the scully square station
Every day at quarter past 2
And thru the open window she hands Charlie
A sandwich as the train goes rumbling thru

4 ladies promenade
Never returned no he never returned
Swing your lady there and promenade
He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned


TAG

He's the man who never returned
