Class Of 57
The Statler Brothers 1972
  (Gold Rush 120)   Scott Brown

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Tommy's selling used cars, Nancy's fixing hair,
Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn't care
Jerry drives a truck for Sears and Charlotte's on the make

Left allemande that corner girl and weave around the ring
And the class of '57 had its dreams
Swing your lady round tonight and promenade I sing
Things get complicated when you get past eighteen,
But the class of '57 had its dreams


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) 2 couples square thru 4 hands around you go
find that corner lady and do a dosado
Star thru and then pass the ocean there my friend
Swing thru and now you spin the top again
Square thru and count 3/4 round
Swing and whirl that corner girl and promenade on down
Maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs
But the class of '57 had its dreams


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Helen is a hostess, Frank works at the mill,
Janet teaches grade school and prob'ly always will

Left allemande that corner girl come back and dosado
Allemande left that corner girl and weave around that ring
And the class of '57 had its dreams
Oh, we all thought we'd change the world with our great works and deeds
Or maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs
But the class of '57 had its dreams


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
John is big in cattle, Ray is deep in debt
Where Mavis finally wound up is anybody's bet
Linda married Sonny, and Brenda married me
And the class of all of us...

Left allemande and now you weave
And the class of '57 had its dreams
But living life from day to day is never what it seems
Things get complicated when you get past eighteen
But the class of '57 had its dreams


TAG

Swing your girl
Oh, the class of '57 had its dreams
