Keep On The Sunnyside Of Life
The Carter Family 1899
  (Coyote 802)   Don Coy

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
There's a dark and troubled side of life
There's a bright and sunnyside too

Left allemande, run home a dosado
Left allemande, weave the ring
Keep on the sunnyside, always on the sunnyside
Dosado and promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunnyside of life


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads (sides) square thru 4 hands you go
Around the corner lady dosado
Swing thru and then spin the top and when you're through
Do the right & left thru
Square thru 3 hands, 3/4 round the ring
Swing the corner lady, promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunnyside of life


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade inside, back home swing the men around and around
Join hands and you circle, you circle to the left
Left allemande and weave the ring
Keep on the sunnyside, always on the sunnyside
Dosado and promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunnyside of life
