Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

(Grand Parade or Grand Square)
*I'm driving home for Christmas, oh, I can't wait to see those faces
I'm driving home for Christmas, yeah
(or Circle Left)
Well, I'm moving down that line (Or Allemande Left & Weave)
And it's been so long, but I will be there
I sing this song, to pass the time away
Driving in my car, I'm driving home for Christmas


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Top to toe in tailbacks, oh, I got red lights all around
But soon there'll be a freeway, yeah, get my feet on holy ground
And it's been so long, but I will be there
I sing this song, to pass the time away
Driving in my car, I'm driving home for Christmas


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway around
Pass the ocean then extend
Swing thru you do, then the boys run right
Chain down the line, now half sashay
Box the gnat for me, square thru 3
Swing and promenade your girl
Driving in my car, I'm driving home for Christmas


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(32 beats instrumental)
Allemande left and weave
So I sing for you, though you can't hear me
When I get through, and feel you near me
Driving in my car, with a thousand memories


TAG

Circle left
He's driving home, driving home for Christmas

Driving Home For Christmas
 
 

Driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can't wait to see those faces
I'm driving home for Christmas, yeah
Well I'm moving down that line
And it's been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

It's gonna take some time
But I'll get there
Top to toe in tail-lights
Oh, I got red lights on the run
But soon there'll be a freeway
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through
And feel you near me
I am driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories

I take a look at the driver next to me
He's just the same
Just the same
Top to toe in tail-lights
Oh, I got red lights on the run
I'm driving home for Christmas, yeah
Get my feet on holy ground
So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through
And feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories

Lyrics by Christopher Anton Rea.
Recorded by Chris Rea.
