Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*A Salvation Army band played
And the children drank lemonade
And the morning lasted all day
All day

Allemande left and weave
**And through an open window came
Swing and you promenade
Pushing the town away, away


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They sat on the stony ground
And he took a cigarette out
And everyone else came down to listen


**It was the winter nineteen sixty-three
(It felt like the world would freeze) Swing and you promenade
With John F. Kennedy
And the Beatles


*The evening had turned to rain
Watched the water roll down the drain
As we followed him down - to the station


**And though he would never wave goodbye
(You could see it written in his eyes) Swing and you promenade
As the train rolled out of sight
Bye bye


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade travel halfway around
Walk in square thru 4 hands around that ring
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Boys run right
Star thru, pass thru then trade by
Swing your corner lady, promenade I cry
Life in a northern town

Life In A Northern Town
 
 

A Salvation Army band played
And children drunk lemonade
And the morning lasted all day
All day
And through an open window came
Like Sinatra in a younger day
Pushing the town away
Ah

Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town

They sat on the stoney ground
And he took out a cigarette out
And everyone else came down
To listen
He said "In winter 1963
It felt like the world would freeze
With John F. Kennedy
And The Beatles."

Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town
Ah hey ma ma ma
All the work shut down

The evening had turned to rain
Watch the water roll down the drain
As we followed him down
To the station
And though he never would wave goodbye
You could see it written in his eyes
As the train rolled out of sight
Bye-bye

Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town

Lyrics by Gilbert Alexander Gabriel and Nick Laird-Clowes.
Recorded by Dream Academy; Sugarland (featuring Little Big Town and Jake Owen).
