Golden Rocket
Hank Snow 1950
  (Rockin' M 602)   John Chavis

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
From old Montana down to Alabam
I've been before and I'll go again

Left allemande, come on home do a dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Well, you dealt the cards and you missed the play
Swing your lady, promenade that way
The golden rocket's gonna carry my blues away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru get them 4 hands round
Dosado with the corner go round
Swing thru, let a boy run right
You'll tag the line and cloverleaf and go
Well the girls square thru 3 hands and go round
Swing your corner, promenade and now
The golden rocket's gonna carry my blues away


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Well now the heads star thru, California twirl
Split 'em now and you make your line
Step to a wave and do a grand swing thru
Do a single hinge, coordinate
The boys you fold and the corner you swing
Swing that lady, promenade the ring
The golden rocket's gonna carry my blues away


MIDDLE BREAK   

Star the route (64 beats)
Heads star right 3/4
Make a left hand star with the side couples a full turn
Heads star right in the middle 1/2
Make a left hand star with the side couples
Heads star right in the middle 3/4 to home
