OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Hey Las Vegas, can nothing save us from you?
Night after night, watching the wheel go around

Four ladies chain across and back
Hey Las Vegas, the devil gave us to you
Promenade
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass thru, separate around two to a line
Touch 1/4, boys run right
Swing thru and then, don't stop spin the top
Move up and do the right and left thru
You flutter wheel across the floor, sweep 1/4 more
Swing your corner, promenade
*What can I do, you've got me hooked on you
And I can never go


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*City of sin, oh what a mess I'm in
Look what you've done to me


*Why do I stay when every game I play
I just get deeper in


*Just for a day, to pass some time away
And shoot a game or two


TAG

Swing with your girl around
I'm gonna burn you down
I'm gonna burn you down

The lord above made the world for us
But the devil made Las Vegas

Oh Las Vegas
You'll be the death of me
City of sin, oh what a mess I'm in
Look what you've done to me

Oh Las Vegas
I'm losing everything
Why do I stay when every game I play
I just get deeper in

Hey Las Vegas, can nothing save us from you
Night after night, watching the wheel go round
Hey Las Vegas, the devil gave us to you
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down

(Las Vegas, Las Vegas)

One black Sunday, I came to visit you
Just for a day, to pass some time away and play a game or two
Oh Las Vegas that was a year ago
What can I do, you've got me hooked on you and I can never go

Hey Las Vegas, can nothing save us from you
Night after night, watching the wheel go round
Hey Las Vegas, the devil gave us to you
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down

(Night after night, watching the wheel go round)

Hey Las Vegas, the devil gave us to you
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down (Las Vegas)
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down (Las Vegas)
One of these days, I'm gonna burn you down (Las Vegas)

Composed by Mitch Murray.
