Can't Get Up By Ourself   (Mustang 182)   Art Springer
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Livin' in life's darkest valleys
Filled with agony and despair

Walk around your corner, see saw your taw
Allemande left and weave the ring
Everyone will stumble and fall along the way
Swing your girl around and promenade
We got to help each other and rise above
Cause we can't get up by ourself


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) flutter wheel and sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and then swing thru
Boys run right and couples circulate tonight
Wheel & deal and then slide thru
Square thru 4 hands and trade by
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Cause we been down so long and so far gone
That we can't get up by ourself


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream

All four ladies chain 3/4 around
Then chain those ladies straight across
Turn the girls, sides face, grand square eight steps,
Allemande left and weave the ring
Everyone will stumble and fall along the way
Swing that girl around and promenade
We got to help each other and rise above
Cause we can't get up by ourself
