Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain go straight across the ring
Join hands, circle left go round the ring
Roll away half sashay, circle left and then
Roll away, then weave around the ring
Go in and out around, meet your own a dosado
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Promenade tonight, everything will be alright
Cause tonight Carmen is coming back home


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

All four ladies chain go straight across the ring
1 & 3 dosado go full around
Star thru, pass thru, swing thru with the outside
Boys run then do a wheel & deal
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 round the ring
Swing the corner lady, promenade
Promenade them tonight, everything will be alright
Cause tonight Carmen is coming back home

Tonight Carmen
 
 

Carmen, Carmen, Carmen

Tonight I am aching, my body is shaking
Tonight Carmen's coming back home
Tonight there'll be no room for tears in my bedroom
Tonight Carmen's coming back home
Tonight as I stand here I notice my hand here
Is trembling as never before
My feelings I can't hide, resistance has all died
My pride will rush outside
The moment she walks through the door

The lips that have kissed her, that's loved her and missed her
Are lips that have cursed her at night
In anguish and torment I've cursed as the night went
From darkness till dawn's golden light
I've thought of just taking these two hands and breaking
The body I'm waiting to touch
I find while I'm waiting, there's no time for hating
While anticipating
The woman I've wanted so much

I've placed pretty flowers to brighten the hours
I've put brand new sheets on the bed
I'm nervous, I'm trembling, recalling, remembering
The way that she tosses her head
I've given much thought to the fact that I ought to
Have more control over my life
How can I fight it, how can I deny it,
There's no way to hide it
The love that I have for my wife

Carmen, Carmen, Carmen

Lyrics by Marty Robbins.
