Bed Of Roses
The Statler Brothers 1971
  (Crown 192)   Jeremy Butler

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across that ring
You turn the girl and chain her right back home
Join hands circle to the left
Left allemande and weave the ring
This bed of Roses that I lay on
Swing with that girl and promenade
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand

Swing that girl and then promenade along


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle and go
Dosado the corner girl
Swing thru tonight, the boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
You pass the ocean
Recycle on around
Swing the corner girl and promenade
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand


CLOSER    Basic

4 boys promenade the ring
Back home swing with your girl
Join hands circle to the left
Left allemande and weave the ring
This bed of Roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand

It's the only kind of life I understand
