Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I saw the light on the night
That I pass by her window

Men star by the right once around tonight
Left allemande, and you weave the ring
She was my woman
Swing and you promenade
As she deceived me, I watched
And went out of my mind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade take it halfway around
Sides (heads) you square thru 4 hands you go
Then a right & left thru
Turn that girl, eight chain 6
She was my woman
Swing and promenade
As she deceived me, I watched
And went out of my mind


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
My, my, my
Delilah
Why, why, why
Delilah

Allemande left and weave the ring
I, I could see that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man can free


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides Face, Grand Square
At break of day, when that man drove away
I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house
And she opened the door

Sides square thru 4
She stood there laughing
Swing and promenade
I felt the knife in my hand
And she laughed no more


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
My, my, my
Delilah
Why, why, why
Delilah

Allemande left and weave the ring
So, so before the come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take any more


TAG

Chain the girls over and back
Forgive me Delilah
I just couldn't take any more

Delilah
 
 

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
I could see, that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

Composed by Les Reed.
Lyrics by Barry Mason and Sylvan Whittingham Mason.
