Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Outside another yellow moon, has punched a hole in the night time mist
I climb through the window, and down to the street
Lord, I'm shining like a new diamond

Allemande and weave the ring
The downtown trains are full
Swing that girl and promenade the ring
Full of all them Brooklyn girls
They try so hard, to break out of their little world...


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway round you go
Walk in and square thru to four hands round
Go all the way and then a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel around now
You square thru three and then
Swing that girl and promenade my friend
Lord, if I was the one, you chose to be your only one, oh baby


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Oh they head to the carnival, but they're never gonna bring you back

MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Will I see you tonight? On a downtown train?
Every night, every night, it's just the same

Allemande and weave the ring
Will I see you tonight? On a downtown train?
All my dream, all my dreams fall like rain
On a downtown (train)


TAG

Circle home
On a downtown train, all my dreams fall like rain
On a downtown train

Downtown Train
 
 

Outside another yellow moon
Has punched a hole in the nighttime, yes
I climb through the window and down to the street
I'm shining like a new dime
The downtown trains are full
With all those Brooklyn girls
They try so hard to break out of their little worlds

You wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one
You chose to be your only one
Oh baby, can't you hear me now
Can't you hear me now

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Every night it's just the same
You leave me lonely, now

I know your window and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four-way
You watch them as they fall
Oh baby, they all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival
But they'll never win you back

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Where every night, every night it's just the same
Oh baby

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
All of my dreams just fall like rain
Oh, baby on a downtown train

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Where every night, every night it's just the same
Oh baby

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
All of my dreams just fall like rain
Oh, on a downtown train

Oh, on a downtown train
Oh, on a downtown train
Oh, on a downtown train
Oh, on a downtown train

Lyrics by Tom Waits.
Recorded by Tom Waits; Rod Stewart.
