I'm Alive
Neil Diamond 1982
  (Cheyenne 2042)   Brian Freed

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Take a walk, you can hardly breath the air
Look around it's a hard life everywhere

Left allemande turn your partner by the right
Left allemande, weave that ring around tonight
Every day there's a brand-new baby born
And every day there's a sun to keep you warm
When it's alright, yeah, it's alright


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway you go
Lead right and veer left around you go
Couples circulate go twice around and then
Bend your line, right & left thru my friend
Now star thru, pass thru and the corner swing
Promenade all around the ring
*When it's alright, yeah, it's alright


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Everyday, you can hear me say

MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'm alive and I don't care much for words of doom
If it's love you need well, I got the room
It's a simple thing that changed in me

Left allemande and weave
I'm alive, I want to take all that life has got to give
Swing and promenade (all I need is someone) to share it with
I've got love and love is all I really need to live


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'm alive, I want to take all that life has got to give
All I need is someone to share it with
I've got love and love is all I really need to

Allemande left and weave
And I don't care much for words of doom
If it's love you need well, I got the room
(Swing and promenade)
It's a simple thing that came to me and I thank God I'm alive
