OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Did you ever lie and listen to the rainfall
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie?
Did you ever watch a child while he was praying?
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Left allemande and weave around that ring now
In and out around and promenade so fine
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor?
Just don't let the good life pass you by


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Did you ever hold a hand to stop it's trembling?
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky?
Did you ever hold a child while she was sleeping?
Just don't let the good life pass you by


*Did you ever see the funny side of dancing?
Did you turn around and knew not why
Did you ever goof a square and blame your corner
Just don't let the good life pass you by


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Heads square thru and get me four now
You make a right hand star and keep in time
The heads star left, on around today
Meet the sides, right & left thru and then...
Rollaway, pass thru, trade by and swing now
Swing that girl around, you promenade so fine
Look my friend there's happiness in living
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By
 
 

Did you ever lie and listen to the rain fall
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie
Did you ever watch a child while he was praying
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Did you ever hold a hand to stop its trembling
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleeping
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Lyrics by Sharon Leigh Rucker.
Recorded by Ferlin Husky; Cass Elliott; others.
