San Antonio Rose / Wabash Cannonball
Bob Wills and His Playboys; Merle Haggard; Johnny Cash; John Denver; many others 1938
  (Red Boot 3 side A)   


Circle left
*Deep within my heart lies a melody
A song of old San Antone

Left allemande the corner, turn partner by the right
Left allemande and weave around the ringo
**Moon in all your splendor knows only my heart
Swing your own and promenade, sweetheart
For that moonlit pass, by the Alamo
And Rose, my Rose of San Antone


*It was there I found beside the Alamo
Enchantment strange as the blue up above

**Lips so sweet and tender, like petals falling apart
Speak once again of my love, my own

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the heads (sides) promenade half around the square
Walk in and square thru go four hands from there
Go all the way around and do the right & left thru
Veer to the left and couples circulate go
Half tag the line, scoot back and then
Swing the corner girl and promenade the ring
Broken song, empty words I know
Still live in my heart all alone


And Rose, my Rose of San Antone
