Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Well she looked all right by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak

Allemande on the corner and you dosado
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
Let freedom ring
Swing and promenade (let the white dove sing)
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round
Walk in and square thru 4
Go all the way round, right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel once more
Square thru 3, swing corner, promenade
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Let freedom ring, let the white dove sail
Left allemande and dosado (it's a reckoning)
Allemande and weave the ring
Let the weak be strong
Swing and promenade (let the right be wrong)
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day

Independence Day Lyrics ID: 2358

Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again
But daddy'd left the proof on her cheek
I was only eight years old that summer
And I always seemed to be in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town
On Independence Day

Well word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man
Mama was proud and she stood her ground
But she knew she was on the losin' end
Some folks whispered and some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out there was no one about
On Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a
Day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, Let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day

Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames and took down some names
Sent me to the county home
Now I ain't sayin' it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way
Talk about your revolution
It's Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a
Day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day

Roll the stone away
It's Independence Day

Lyrics by Gretchen Peters.
Recorded by Martina McBride.
