Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle to the left
If you could read my mind, girl
What a tale my thoughts could tell

Allemande left and then dosado I sing
Left allemande and weave around the ring
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I'm the ghost that you can't see


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands now
To the corner touch 1/4 somehow, scoot back
Boy run around a girl, right & left thru you go
Pass the ocean, swing thru
Boys trade, swing and promenade
And you won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
If you could read my mind, girl
What a tale my thoughts could tell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me

Allemande and weave
Heroes often fail
And you won't read that book again
Because the endings just to hard to take


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet

Allemande and weave
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

If You Could Read My Mind Lyrics ID: 3570

If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well

In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me

And I will never be set free
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

If I could read your mind, love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell

When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail

And you won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take

I'd walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three-way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now love, let's be real

I never thought I could act this way
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone
And I just can't get it back

If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well

In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But stories always end

And if you read between the lines
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
The feeling's that you lack

I never thought I could feel this way
And I've got to say that I just don't get it

I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone
And I just can't get it back

Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot.
