Heartland
  (ESP 343)   Tom Miller

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Mr. President, would you listen to the song
In mainstream America there's something going wrong

Do an allemande left, turn your partner by the right
Four men star by the left in the middle you go alright
Turn your partner by the right and go left allemande
Swing the girl and you promenade
Don't let the heartland become a wasteland
Think about the future and our kids


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru four hands you do
Dosado the corner one time will do
Swing thru, all the girls fold, peel your top
Come on and do the right & left thru
Well square thru and go 3/4 round the ring
Swing that corner, promenade
Don't let the heartland become a wasteland
Think about the future and our kids


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
You see all the "For Sale" signs in the yards of our friends
They can't pay the mortgage and the interest raised again

Do an allemande left the corner, turn your partner by the right
Men star by the left in the middle and go one time alright
Turn your partner by the right and go left allemande
Swing that girl and you promenade
Don't let the heartland become a wasteland
Think about the future and our kids


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
The Senate and the House [state], let's all take a stand
Not to let the men on Wall Street make the plans

Allemande left the corner, turn your partner by the right
Allemande the corner girl, gonna weave on 'round the ring
Don't let the heartland become a wasteland
Our fathers built it with their sweat and tears
Don't let the heartland become a wasteland
Think about the future and our kids
