OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Lay it soft against your skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Allemande the corner, weave the ring
Come and lay down by my side
Swing your girl and promenade
All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru you know
Round that corner, dosado
Swing thru and then, boy run to the right
Couples circulate, ladies trade, bend the line, forward up and back
Star thru, pass thru, trade by
Swing the corner girl, promenade
All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night


TAG

All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night

Help Me Make It Through The Night  (1969)

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose, let it fall
Lay it soft against my skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early morning light
All I'm taking is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I won't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'cause tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I won't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'cause tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't want to be alone
Help me make it through the night

Lyrics by Kris Kristofferson.
Recorded by Kris Kristofferson.
