OPENER    B - SSD Week 1

4 ladies promenade go once around the ring
Get back home and swing with your man
Join hands circle to the left go round the ring
Left allemande the corner weave the ring
From the mountains to the prairies
Dosado and promenade
God bless America, my home sweet home


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade go halfway around
Down the middle and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel across, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and do a right & left thru
Veer to the left, ferris wheel, center 2 pass thru
Swing the corner lady, promenade
God bless America, my home sweet home
(My home sweet, sides face grand square - use before middle break and closer)


MIDDLE BREAK    C4

Four score and seven years ago
Our fathers brought forth on this continent
A new nation
Conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition
That all men are created equal

Left allemande, curlique at home
Boys run right, left allemande, promenade
God bless America, my home sweet home


CLOSER   

This nation under God shall have a
New birth of freedom
And that government of the people
By the people, for the people
Shall not perish from the earth
Left allemande, curlique at home

Boys run right, left allemande, promenade
God bless America, my home sweet home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home
