Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Can anybody here...pass me a beer?
And I'm'a keep playing this music that you hear
And if you know this song
Come and sing along with me

Allemande and weave this ring
If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding
Down in the islands...down in the islands


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) promenade half around the ring
The sides (heads) a right & left thru ya turn 'em I sing
Heads (sides) square thru four hands around and go
You do an eight chain four
Girls to the left...fellas to the right (beach to the left...sea to the right)
Swing your little girl and promenade her tonight
We're gonna dance to the rhythm of the waves
Partying down (by the bonfire flames)


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding
Down in the islands

Allemande and weave go
You should...lose track of your timing
Grab a drink beside me
Down in the islands...down in the islands


TAG

Down in the islands...down in the islands

Island Song
 
 

Can anybody here pass me a beer?
And I'm'a keep playing this music that you hear
And if you know the song
Then come and sing along with me

Walking with the beach to my left
Sea to my right
And I'm'a get faded at the Tiki bar tonight
Then I'm'a roll one up
Like, my name is Bob
Yeah, I'm gonna party like I'm a Jamaican

If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding
Down in the islands, down in the islands
You should lose track of your timing
Grab a drink beside me
Down in the islands, down in the islands

Can anybody here pass me the rum?
And we can find somebody who can play the steel drums
And if you like this beat then everybody dance with me
We got the ladies to the left
Fellas to the right
And everybody's faded at the Tiki bar tonight
And we are gonna dance to the rhythm of the waves
While we drink Bacardi by the bonfire flames

If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding
Down in the islands, down in the islands
You should lose track of your timing
Grab a drink beside me
Down in the islands, down in the islands

You don't need no invitation, no
Whoaa!
If you're looking for relaxation
Get away, get away with me
Make your destination my location

If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding
Down in the islands, down in the islands
You should lose track of your timing
Grab a drink beside me
Down in the islands, down in the islands

If you really wanna know where you can find me
I'll be unwinding (down, down, down, down)
Down in the islands, down in the islands
You should lose track of your timing
Grab a drink beside me
Down in the islands, down in the islands

Lyrics by Nic Cowan.
Recorded by Zac Brown Band.
