Cracklin' Rosie
Neil Diamond 1970
  (Sting 21204)   Paul Bristow

OPENER    Basic

You circle left
Oh Cracklin' Rosie, get on board
We're gonna ride till there ain't no more to go

Left allemande you know, dosado
Allemande left your corner and weave the ring go
Hitchin' on a twilight train
Swing with your girl, promenade again
And Lord, don't you know
Have me a time with a poor man's lady


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads pass thru, separate around two, you make a line of four
Touch 1/4 and the boys run right
Swing thru tonight, the boys you trade
The boys run right and then
You ferris wheel, pass thru, swing thru
Swing your corner lady and you promenade her home
*To set the world right
Find us a dream that don't asks no questions


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Maybe a song that I want
Don't need to say please


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Oh, I love my Rosie child
She got the way to make me happy
You and me, we go in style
Cracklin' Rosie you're a store-bought woman

Four ladies chain
You make me sing like a guitar hummin'
Chain them home
Hang on to me, girl, you promenade and you keep runnin' on
Play it now - play it now - play it now, my baby


TAG

Swing your girl, once around
Play it now - play it now, my baby
