Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies chain go cross that ring
You rollaway, circle left again
Four ladies rollaway, circle left that way
Left allemande and weave that ring
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Swing that girl and you promenade that way
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Peace on Earth, good will toward men


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around
Lead right, veer left
Bend the line, touch 1/4 there
All eight circulate, boys run right and do the right & left thru
Dive in square thru 3/4 round
Swing that corner and all promenade
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Peace on Earth, good will toward men


TAG

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day Lyrics ID: 3309

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound the carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn, the households born
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men."

Composed by John Baptiste Calkin.
Lyrics by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Recorded by Burl Ives; Elvis Presley; Johnny Cash; many others.
