OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around the corner girl, see saw your own
Join hands, circle left and round you roam
The boys star right hand once around
Left allemande the corner girl, weave around the ring
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love
You'll rule this land with me
I'm the Sheik of Araby


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

All four ladies chain straight across that ring
Heads promenade halfway round and then
Those sides star thru, California twirl
Slide thru and then load the boat
At night when you're asleep
Swing that corner girl around and promenade
You'll rule this land with me
I'm the Sheik of Araby

The Sheik Of Araby
 
 

Over the desert wild and free
Rides the bold Sheik of Araby
His Arab band at his command
Follows his love's caravan
Under the shadow of the palms
He sings to call her to his arms

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

While the stars are fading in the dawn
Over the desert they'll be gone
His captured bride close by his side
Swift as the wind they will ride
Proudly he scorns her smile or tear
Soon he will conquer love by fear.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,

I'm the Sheik of Araby.

Composed by Ted Snyder.
Lyrics by Harry B. Smith and Francis Wheeler.
Recorded by Merle Travis; The Beatles; Lou Monte.
