Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Twenty six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a waitin' for me
Santa Catalina the island of romance, romance, romance

Four ladies chain
You chain her over, chain her back
Promenade your girl, walkin' round the track
But for me, the thing, that's waitin' there is romance


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) pass thru, then wheel around
Half sashay, slide thru
Pass the ocean, spin the top
When you're done, boy run, ferris wheel
Centers pass thru, box the gnat and you swing
Keep this girl and promenade the ring
Santa Catalina the island of romance


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat
Any old thing that will stay afloat
When we arrive, we'll all promote, romance, romance, romance


*Water all around it, every where
Tropical trees and the salty air
But the thing for me that's waitin' there is romance, romance, romance

26 Miles (Santa Catalina)
 
 

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance

Water all around it everywhere
Tropical trees and the salty air
But for me the thing that's a-waitin' there-romance

It seems so distant, twenty-six miles away
Restin' in the water serene
I'd work for anyone, even the Navy
Who would float me to my island dream

Twenty- six miles, so near yet far
I'd swim with just some water-wings and my guitar
I could leave the wings but I'll need the guitar for romance, romance, romance
Romance

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance

A tropical heaven out in the ocean
Covered with trees and girls
If I have to swim, I'll do it forever
Till I'm gazin' on those island pearls

Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat
Any old thing that'll stay afloat
When we arrive we'll all promote romance, romance, romance, romance

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me

Lyrics by Bruce Belland and Glen Larson.
Recorded by The Four Preps.
