Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*One starry night in a little town
In old Mexico
I found my love down by the sea
Where the soft trade winds blow

Four ladies promenade,
Swing your man and all promenade
I fell in love with the girl with gardenias in her hair


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I go each night to the places where she once spoke my name
Some call me fool, they say I'm chasing only a dream
But I know one day I'll turn and suddenly she'll be there
And I'll spend my life with the girl with gardenias in her hair


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade outside halfway around
Walk in and square thru four
Swing thru, boys run, ferris wheel
Centers square thru 3/4,
Swing corner, promenade
I fell in love with the girl with gardenias in her hair


TAG

The Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair
 
 

One starry night
In a little town in Old Mexico
I found my love
Down by the sea, where soft trade winds blow
She came in the night
With perfume that sweetened the air
And I lost my heart
To the girl with gardenias in her hair

I glanced her way
She smiled and my heart started to sing
She came into my arms
And the night became a sweet, magic thing
When I held her close
I knew I'd follow her anywhere
And I lost my heart
To the girl with gardenias in her hair

We shared thru the night
Our love until the first light of dawn
Then one last kiss
And like a whisper on the wind, she was gone

I go each night
To the places where she once spoke my name
Some call me fool
They say I'm chasing only a dream
But I know, one day
I'll turn and suddenly, she'll be there
And I'll spend my life
With the girl with gardenias in her hair

Lyrics by Joy Byers and Bob Tubert.
Recorded by Marty Robbins.
