One Step At A Time
Buddy Jewell 2003
  (Tarheel 139)   Chuck Mashburn

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've been humbled by the glory in the power of his love
When I've stumbled and I've fallen, He's been there to pick me up
In the face of all temptation He's been the strength to stand my ground

Four men promenade one time inside you go
Oh I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Swing your girl and promenade
But I'll make it up to heaven
One step at a time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway round you go
Sides (Heads) square thru four hands
In the middle an go, four hands and then
You do a right & left thru, eight chain six
Six hands around you go
Oh I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Oh I've got no wings to fly

Swing corner, promenade
But I'll make it up to heaven
One step at a time


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've cried tears of jealous sorrow, I have tasted bitter wine
Lost faith in my tomorrows and I've cursed the hands of time
I've wandered through the darkness, surrendered to my doubts

Four ladies promenade one time around you go go
I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Swing your girl and promenade
But I'll make it up to heaven
One step at a time


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
When all the clouds have parted and I lie face to face with death
I won't fear the darkness in the grasp of my last breath
I'll climb that mighty stairway that leads to heaven's gate

Four men promenade one time around you
I'm a man, I'm not an angel, Swing your girl and promenade
But I'll make it up to heaven one step at a time
Swing her
One step at a time
