OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Now there was a time, here was a place I loved
Why don't the men star by the right one time around and do the
Allemande with the corner left and weave that ring
Careless and crazy
Running to, God knows where

Swing that girl promenade
Now where is that heartland?
Where is the one who cares?


FIGURE (1)    Mainstream, corner progression

Why don't the heads (sides) square thru 4 hands round you fly
Touch 1/4, scoot back, split circulate, girls run
Reverse flutter wheel half sashay and then, slide thru
Swing the corner promenade around the ring
I might sail forever and never find that island again


FIGURE (2)    Plus, unknown progression

Why don't the heads (sides) square thru 4 hands round you fly
Touch 1/4 then follow your neighbor and spread
Fan the top and do the right & left thru
Dixie style to a wave everybody cross run
Swing that girl promenade
I might sail forever and never find that island again


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies chain go straight across that ring
You rollaway circle to the left
Four ladies rollaway, circle to the left go round I say
Allemande left and weave that ring
I can hear you calling
Wandering boy, come home soon
And I can hear the music
I can see your face in the moon


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I fight with my mem'ry
And find all the pieces I can
Of that beautiful woman
Who trusted her heart in my hands

Allemande left and weave the ring
Now what kind of sailor
Would let such a dream get lost?
Cuz tonight we'd be sailing
Out under that old southern cross


TAG

Allemande left and swing
Tonight we'd be sailing
Out under that old southern cross

Island  (1990)

There was a time,
There was a place I loved.
That was my moment,
That's just the way it was.
Careless and crazy,
Running to God knows where.
Now where is that heartland?
Where is the one who cares?

I can hear you calling:
"Wandering boy, come home soon."
I hear the music,
I see your face in the moon.
Who am I fooling?
There's no need for me to pretend.
I might sail forever,
And never find that island again.

I fight with my mem'ry,
Find all the pieces I can.
Of a beautiful woman,
Who trusted her heart in my hands.
Now what kind of sailor,
Would let such a dream get lost?
Tonight we'd be sailing,
Out under the Southern cross.

I can hear you calling:
"Wandering boy, come home soon."
I hear the music,
I see your face in the moon.
Who am I fooling?
There's no need for me to pretend.
I might sail forever,
And never find that island again.

Who am I fooling?
There's no need for me to pretend.
I might sail forever,
And never find that island again.
I could sail forever,
And never find that island again.

Lyrics by Troy Seals and Eddy Raven.
