Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands, circle to the left, circle left for awhile
Reverse back along that line single file
Girls step out and back track meet your partner, box the gnat
Pull her by, corners all left allemande
Grand old right and left you travel in and out around the square
Promenade with your partner, she's waitin' for you there
*Promenade two by two, take her home and swing her too
**Don't you know that she's lonesome tonight?


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If you're feelin' sad & blue then you know how I miss you

**Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Dosado your corners all, then you seesaw your taw
1 & 3 (2 & 4) right and left thru across that hall
Go the right, circle up 4, head gents break to a line of 4
Forward & back with you, pass on thru
Bend the line, star thru, square thru 3/4 round
When you find that corner, swing, promenade go round that town
***Promenade 2 by 2, take her home, swing her too
Don't you know that she's lonesome tonight?

Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight


***If your heart's filled with pain, shall I come back again
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight

Are You Lonesome Tonight
 
 

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world's a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I'll never know.
Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.

Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

Lyrics by Roy Turk and Lou Handman.
Recorded by Elvis Presley (1960).
