Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Galveston, oh, Galveston
*I still hear your seawinds blowing
*I still see her dark eyes glowing

4 ladies chain, chain them home
Promenade
**She was twenty one, when I left Galveston


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Galveston, oh!
Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying


**Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru
Right hand star
The heads (sides) star left
Same two swing thru
Boys cross fold
Swing and promenade
She was twenty one, when I left Galveston


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I still see her standing by the water
Men star right
Left allemande and weave
Standing there looking out to sea
And is she waiting there for me
On the beach where we used to run?


TAG

At Galveston, at Galveston

Galveston
 
 

Galveston, oh Galveston
I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston
I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

I still see her standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there for me?
On the beach where we used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston
I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston

Lyrics by Jimmy L. Webb.
Recorded by Glen Campbell.
