Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across that ring
You turn the girl and chain her right back home
Join hands circle to the left
Left allemande and weave the ring
This bed of Roses that I lay on
Swing with that girl and promenade
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand

Swing that girl and then promenade along


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle and go
Dosado the corner girl
Swing thru tonight, the boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
You pass the ocean
Recycle on around
Swing the corner girl and promenade
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand


CLOSER    Basic

4 boys promenade the ring
Back home swing with your girl
Join hands circle to the left
Left allemande and weave the ring
This bed of Roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of Roses where I'm livin'
Is the only kind of life I understand

Bed Of Roses
 
 

She was called a scarlet woman by the people
Who would go to church but left me in the street
With no parents of my own, I never had a home
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat

She found me outside one Sunday morning
Taking money from a man I didn't know
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
A woman of the streets this Lady Rose

This bed of roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of roses where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand

She was a handsome woman, just thirty-five
Who was spoken to town by very few
She managed a late evening business
Like most of the town wished they could do

And I learned all the things that a man should know
From a woman not approved of, I suppose
But she died knowing that I really loved her
Off life's bramble bush, I picked a rose

This bed of roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of roses where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand

Lyrics by Harold Reid.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
