Wish I'd Loved You Better   (Lightning S 5028)   Art Springer
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Back in my younger days when I was running wild
Looking at the world through the eyes of a child

Left allemande the corner turn partner by the right
Left allemande then you're going to weave that ring
I wished that I had loved you better
Swing your girl and promenade
If I could see you but one more time
Now that I know what love is for


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*People often told me some day I'd have to pay
But I was young and foolish, never heard a word they'd say


*Now those younger days are only memories
Playing in my mind like a gentle summer breeze


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) lead to the right, circle round that track
Make a line of four, forward up and back
Pass thru, wheel & deal, double pass thru
First couple left the next go right, square thru you do
Four hands around, swing that corner
Swing that girl and promenade
*If I could see you but one more time
Now that I know what love is for


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Love was a toy, I picked it up and threw it down
Just to watch it shatter in pieces on the ground
