Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(Don't rush ... Take full 32 beats)
*Oh, how we danced, on the night that we met
We vowed our true love, though a word wasn't said

Do-Si the corner, see saw your own
Left allemande, then promenade home
Two hearts were beating and murmuring low
Oh, darling, I love you so


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Chain the girls, and watch them smile
Send them back, dixie style
Shoot the star, weave by one
Box the gnat, slide thru, and circle left
Dear as I held you so close in my arms
Whirlaway, swing the next one, promenade all her charms
Two hearts were beating and murmuring low
Oh, darling, I love you so


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
Except for a few, that were there in your eyes


*The night seemed to fade, in the blossoming dawn
A sun shown in view, but the dance lingered on

Oh, darling, I love you so

Anniversary Song
 
 

Oh how we danced on the night we were wed
We vowed our true love though a word wasn't said
The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
Except for the few that were there in your eyes

Dear as I held you so close in my arms
Angels were singing a hymn to your charms
Two hearts gently beating were murmuring low
"My darling, I love you so."

The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn
The sun shone anew, but the dance lingered on
Could we but relive that sweet moment sublime
We'd find that our love is unaltered by time.

Lyrics by Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin.
Recorded by Al Jolson.
 
Comments

My mother used to sing this to me when I was a child. I assumed it was about
her and my father. I thought it was the saddest song I ever heard - still do.
