Sides face, grand square *I've held it all inward, Lord knows I've tried It's an awful awakening in a country boy's life To look in the mirror in total surprise At the age in your eyes Allemande left and weave the ring Amanda, light of my life Swing and promenade A gentleman's wife Amanda, light of my life Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
*It's a measure of people who don't understand The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band I got my first guitar when I was fourteen I'm still wearing jeans
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Headspass thru, separate go around two Round two make a line, go forward up and back Touch 1/4 there, and then the boys run to the right Go right & left thru that outside two, and turn that girl tonight Swing thru, it's two times, go twice and then Swing the corner lady, boy, and you promenade that land Amanda, light of my life Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
