Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Did you ever lie and listen to the rainfall
Did you ever eat a homemade apple pie
Did you ever hold a child while he was sleeping
Just don't let the good life pass you by
(Allemande)
Left allemande and weave around the ring go
Dosado your partner, here's why
Allemande left that corner, right & left grand
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by


FIGURE   

Head two men and the corner girl go forward up and back
Make a right hand star once around here's why
Turn your partner left and your corner right, back to your partner left
Four ladies chain 3/4 round go
Keep this girl and promenade
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by


FIGURE (ORIGINAL DANCE RANCH VERSION)    Mainstream, unknown progression

Well now the head two couples square thru four hands around you go
And with sides swing thru I say
Boys run and bend the line, go up to the middle and back
Slide thru and a right & left thru that way
Well flutter wheel go full around and sweep 1/4 more girl
Swing that corner (current partner) girl and promenade
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Did you ever hold a hand to stop it's trembling
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever watch a child while he praying
Just don't let the good life pass you by
(Allemande)
Left allemande and weave around the ring go
Dosado your partner, here's why
Allemande left that corner, right & left grand
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Did you ever have the caller catch you sleeping
Did you ever goof a square and hope to die
Did you ever forget who was your corner
Just don't let the good life pass you by
(Allemande)
Left allemande and weave around the ring go
Dosado your partner, here's why
Allemande left that corner, right & left grand
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By
 
 

Did you ever lie and listen to the rain fall
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie
Did you ever watch a child while he was praying
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Did you ever hold a hand to stop its trembling
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleeping
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Lyrics by Sharon Leigh Rucker.
