Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
* Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for it's coat to turn to green

Well you walk around your corner then do a dopaso
** It's partner left, corner right and partner left you know
Men star by the right around to the corner maid
Left allemande that lady, dosado and promenade
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would fly away with you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* The breeze along the river seems to say
That you'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay


** And take the snow back with you where it came from long ago


FIGURE (1)   

Heads square thru four hands and go
Around the corner lady and do a dosado
Swing thru then boys trade
Boys run right and bend the line
Right & left thru tonight
Do a partner trade and 1/4 more
Swing and promenade around the floor
Snowbird take me with you when you go
To the land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow


FIGURE (2)    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade 3/4 round you know
2 & 4 square thru count four hands and go
Then cloverleaf, new centers pass thru, slide thru,
Spin the top let it flow and then turn thru
Left allemande the corner go home with a dosado
Swing the corner lady and we'll all promeno
So little snowbird take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

Snowbird Lyrics ID: 93

Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring

When I was young my heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win

Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

The breeze along the river seems to say
That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
So, little snowbird, take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

Yeah, if I could I know that I would fl-y-y-y-y away with you

Lyrics by Gene MacLellan.
Recorded by Ann Murray.
