Girl With Gardenias   (Silver Sounds 281)   Jack O'Leary
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*One starry night in a little town
In old Mexico
I found my love down by the sea
Where the soft trade winds blow

Four ladies promenade,
Swing your man and all promenade
I fell in love with the girl with gardenias in her hair


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I go each night to the places where she once spoke my name
Some call me fool, they say I'm chasing only a dream
But I know one day I'll turn and suddenly she'll be there
And I'll spend my life with the girl with gardenias in her hair


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade outside halfway around
Walk in and square thru four
Swing thru, boys run, ferris wheel
Centers square thru 3/4,
Swing corner, promenade
I fell in love with the girl with gardenias in her hair


TAG
