Yesterday's Song
Neil Diamond 1981
  (Blue Ribbon 254)   Dave Parker

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Yesterday's songs don't stay around long
Not much anymore
Yesterday's words don't make themselves heard
Like they did before

Allemande and weave
Baby, yesterday's blues may be yesterday's news
Swing your lady, promenade
And the good things will never change
Like sayin' I love you


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you do
Corner lady there, dosado
Swing thru and then, boys you run to the right
Bend the line, go right & left thru
Flutter wheel and then, all slide thru
Swing your corner, promenade
And the good things will never change
Like sayin' I love you


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain, you chain 'em back home
Join hands, go rollin' go round, allemande and weave
Baby yesterday's blues may be yesterday's news
But the truth always stays the same

Swing, promenade
And the good things will never change
Like sayin' I love you


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Yesterday's songs don't seem to belong
They're here and they're gone
Yesterday's moves don't stay in the grooves
They keep movin' on

Allemande and weave
Maybe yesterday's rhyme was for yesterday's time
And the future's not ours to see

Swing, promenade
But there's some things will always be
Like sayin' I love you


TAG

Like sayin' I love you
