Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

All join hands and circle left beneath that desert moon
Turn right back go single file along the old sand dune
You allemande left and a right to your own, we'll do a right & left grand
You'll meet your Sheba 'neath the stars across the burning sand
Just pull her by and left to the next, it's twice around you whirl
Then promenade that corner maid while she's your own sweet girl
You steal away across the night, 'cause you will always be
The Sheik of Araby


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Head two couples you promenade go half around the square
While the side two couples right & left thru and turn your lady fair
Four gents star and turn your opposite once and a half around
You ladies star across the set and turn that big old boy around
Swing your right-hand lady, boys, you swing that gal around
You allemande left just one, promenade the girl you swung
You steal away across the night, 'cause you will always be
The Sheik of Araby

The Sheik Of Araby
 
 

Over the desert wild and free
Rides the bold Sheik of Araby
His Arab band at his command
Follows his love's caravan
Under the shadow of the palms
He sings to call her to his arms

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

While the stars are fading in the dawn
Over the desert they'll be gone
His captured bride close by his side
Swift as the wind they will ride
Proudly he scorns her smile or tear
Soon he will conquer love by fear.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,

I'm the Sheik of Araby.

Composed by Ted Snyder.
Lyrics by Harry B. Smith and Francis Wheeler.
Recorded by Merle Travis; The Beatles; Lou Monte.
