Brother Love
Neil Diamond 1969
  (Silver Sounds 369)   Jack O'Leary

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Hot August night and the leaves hanging down
And the grass on the ground (smells sweet)

Men star right one time around, left allemande and weave
It's Love, Brother Love, say, Brother Love's Travelin'
Salvation show... (Halle Halle)
Pack up the babies and bring all the ladies
And everyone goes, 'cause everyone knows...


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around
With the sides (heads) make a right hand star
Heads (sides) star left, one time around
With the same two a right & left thru
Touch 1/4 here split circulate twice
Swing that corner, promenade
Pack up the babies and bring all the ladies
And everyone goes, it's Brother Love's show


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Halle Hallelujah
(Spoken) I said brothers and sisters now you got yourself
Two good hands, and when your brother is troubled
You gotta reach out your one hand for Him
'Cause that's what it's there for

Four ladies promenade one time around swing your
Man and promenade... (Halle Halle)
Pack up the babies and bring all the ladies
And everyone goes, it's Brother Love's show


CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, one time around
Back home and swing with your man
Join hands circle to the left and go 'round
Left allemande and weave the ring
Love, Brother Love, say, Brother Love's Travelin'
Salvation show... (Halle Halle)
Pack up the babies and bring all the ladies
And everyone goes, it's Brother Love's show
