West Virginia
John Denver 1971
  (Jopat 1102)   Nick Hartley

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountains, shenandoah river
Life is older, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Blowing in the breeze

Four ladies chain, you turn them there
Star right back home, roll promenade
To West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, down country roads


ALTERNATE LYRICS

All my memories gather round her
Finest lady, stranger to the water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye


FIGURE (heads twice, sides twice)    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around
Round your corner, dosado one time
Swing thru, boys you trade, then run right
Bend the line, star thru, dive thru
Centers square thru 3/4 round
Swing that corner and promenade
To West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, down country roads


TAG

Swing her there
Take me home, down country roads
