Reach Out A Hand Make A Friend
The Staple Singers; Oak Ridge Boys 1973
  (Royal 1216)   Patty Greene

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Can't you feel it in your bones?
A change is coming on
From every walk of life
People seeing the light

Left allemande and weave the ring
**Can't you feel it in your heart now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

4 ladies chain across the ring
Heads you promenade halfway round
Walk in and square thru 4 hands round
Go all the way and swing thru my friend, boy run right
Half tag and then you scoot back and swing
Take that girl, promenade
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

Ain't it time that you come on in?
We can find a better way
Why don't you join us today?


**Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


*Can't you feel it in your heart now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


**Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


*It's been reflected in the attitude
Of other people just like you
Reach out and touch a hand
And make a friend if you can


**Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can


**Can't you feel it in your heart now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
