This Is My Year For Mexico
Charley Pride; Crystal Gayle 1970
  (Red Boot 196)   John Hendron

OPENER    C4

Heads forward grand parade
You no longer notice if I'm wearing perfume
I seldom hear a loving word from you
Your attentions wrapped up in the morning paper
And I feel the restless yearn for something new
We used to whisper love across the night time
Now we never whisper or recall
Every day last year I went to California
This is my year for Mexico


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The head 2 couples square thru go 4 hands
4 hands around and then a swing thru
Spin the top I say, then you do the right & left thru
Turn the girl and flutter wheel that way
Sweep 1/4 more, swing your corner girl
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Every day last year I left for California
This is my year for Mexico


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across the ring, turn 'em
Roll away and circle left go round
4 ladies roll away, circle left now
Left allemande your corner, weave the town
It's a habit for us to be together
Dosado and then you promenade
Every day last year I left for California
This is my year for Mexico


CLOSER    C4

Heads forward grand parade
Your back is turned to me while you're reading
I close my eyes while I pretend to doze
From the road I hear the sound of passing traffic
Some of them are bound for Mexico
It's a habit for us to be together
We sit and watch the deadly shadows grow
Every day last year I left for California
This is my year for Mexico
