Against The Grain
Garth Brooks 1991
  (Chaparral 818)   Scott Smith

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade go once around the ring
Gonna get back home and swing there with your man
Join hands, circle left, gonna move it round the ring
Left allemande the corner, and you weave the ring
*Sometimes you just can't be afraid to wear a different hat
*If Columbus hadn't ventured out the world might still be flat
*Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade go halfway round the ring
Walk to the middle, square thru 4
Get all the way and then right & left thru I say
You veer to the left and ferris wheel once more
You square thru 3 and look for the corner she
Swing that corner lady round, you're gonna promenade for me
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well, Noah took much ridicule for building his great ark
*After 40 days and 40 nights he was looking pretty smart
*He was strong enough to fight the wind and rain


TAG

Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain
