That's Rock 'n' Roll
Eric Carmen; Shaun Cassidy 1977
  (GR8 Trax 031)   Glenn Wilson

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well I was sixteen and sick of school
I didn't know what I wanted to do
I bought a guitar, I got the fever
That's Rock 'n' Roll

Allemande left, weave the ring
I played at parties, played in bars
Swing your lady, promenade her back home
I screamed my heart out, but how I loved it
That's Rock 'n' Roll


OPENER (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Circle left
Well I was sixteen and sick of school
I didn't know what I wanted to do

Men star right, turn it one time tonight and then
Allemande left, weave the ring
I played at parties, played in bars
Swing your lady, promenade her back home
I screamed my heart out, but how I loved it
That's Rock 'n' Roll


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass thru, separate around one make a line
Up to the middle and come on back
Pass the ocean, recycle now, sweep 1/4
Up to the middle and back
Star thru and zoom, the centers pass thru
Swing with your corner, promenade her and go
*Don't try to fight it, just get excited
That's Rock 'n' Roll


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Your hips are shakin', ain't no mistakin'
That's Rock 'n' Roll


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Come on everybody, get down and get with it
Come on everybody, get down and get with it
Come on everybody, get down
That's Rock 'n' Roll

Allemande left, weave the ring
Come on everybody, get down and get with it
*Swing your lady, promenade her back home
*(Come on everybody, get down and get with it)
Come on everybody, get down
That's Rock 'n' Roll


TAG

Swing her
That's Rock 'n' Roll
That's Rock 'n' Roll
