Light The Candles
Val Doonican 1981
  (Riverboat 268)   Ken Bower, Gary Shoemake

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Light the candle, around the world
Create a light, we'll never see
Till the nations of the world
Shake each others' hands in peace

Four ladies chain, and show the way
You chain her back, you promenade
And make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru and four hands and go
You make a right hand star and roll it
Heads star left and turn it all the way
You find your corner lady, and then
Touch 1/4, scoot back my friend
You swing that girl, and promenade
Make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

(Sides face, grand square)
Light the candles around the world
Pray the light will never see
Till the nations of the world
Take each others' hands in peace

Four ladies chain, and show the way
You chain them back and promenade
And make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

The sides square thru, four hands and go
Around the corner lady, dosado
Swing thru, boy run right
You ferris wheel, the centers pass thru
Touch 1/4, scoot back and then
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Light the pack, and show the way
For every boy and every girl
And make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world

Four ladies chain, and show the way
You chain them back and promenade
And make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world
You make the night as bright as day
And light the candles around the world
