Child Of The Fifties
The Statler Brothers 1982
  (Double M 257)   Jim Kline

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I grew up a child of the fifties
Learned to dance to the beat of rock and roll

The men star right travel one time 'round tonight
Left allemande and weave around the ring
And I'll never feel bad 'bout the times that we had
You swing 'em 'round and promenade
The heaven you gave I will treasure and save
'Cause it might be as close as I get


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The 70's were 10 years of reruns
News of Watergate was nothing new


*Now I'm facing the most of the eighties
Old enough to run for President


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the heads square thru and count me four hands
Find the corner waiting there, dosado
Then you swing thru tonight let the boys run to the right
Half tag, walk & dodge and a partner trade
Pass the ocean and then, recycle 'round my friend
Swing your corner, promenade
The heaven you gave I will treasure and save
'Cause it might be as close as I get


TAG

'Cause it might be as close as I get
