OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Twelve hundred miles its length and breadth
That four square cities stand
Its gem set walls of jasper shines
They're not made by human hands

Allemande left and weave
**One hundred miles its gates are wide, abundant entrance there
With fifty miles of elbow room on either side to spare


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*When the gates swing wide on the other side
Just beyond the sunset sea
They'll be room to spare as we enter there
They'll be room for you and room for me


**For the gates are wide on the other side
Where the fairest flowers bloom
On the right hand and on the left hand
Fifty miles of elbow room


*Sometimes I'm cramped and I'm crowded here
And I long for elbow room
I long to reach for altitude
Where the fairest flowers bloom


**It won't be long before I pass into that city fair
With fifty miles of elbow room on either side to spare


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around
Dosado the corner there to an ocean wave
Swing thru, boys run right, ferris wheel around
Centers pass thru, slide thru, square thru three
Swing the corner lady, promenade
With fifty miles of elbow room on either side to spare


TAG

On either side to spare

Fifty Miles Of Elbow Room
 
 

Twelve hundred miles its length and breadth
The four square city stands
It's gem set walls of jasper shine
Not made with human hands
One hundred miles the gates are wide
Abundant entrance there
With fifty miles of elbow room
On either side to spare

When the gates swing wide on the other side
Just beyond the sunset sea
There'll be room to spare as we enter there
Room for you and room for me
For the gates are wide on the other side
Where the flowers ever bloom
On the right hand, on the left hand
Fifty miles of elbow room

Sometimes I'm cramped and crowded here
And long for elbow room
I want to reach for altitude
Where fair flowers bloom
It won't be long 'til I shall pass
Into that city fair
With fifty miles of elbow room
On either side to spare

When the gates swing wide on the other side
Just beyond the sunset sea
There'll be room to spare as we enter there
Room for you and room for me
For the gates are wide on the other side
Where the flowers ever bloom
On the right hand, on the left hand
Fifty miles of elbow room

Lyrics by F.W. McGee.
Recorded by Rev. F.W. McGee; The Carter Family; Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
