Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) lead to the right You'll circle 1/2 the town Dive thru, right & left thru Turn 'em full around Through the sides cross trail Around just one and then Star by the right, your corners allemande It's a right & left around the ring When you meet your own Give 'er a twirl, promenade Sing it as you roam Be it ever so humble There's no place like home
FIGURE Basic, R-H lady progression
Those 4 little ladies chain Turn with the opposite man Swing your corner lady As pretty as you can The head two star thru Right and left thru and then Pass thru, swing your gal again Allemande your corner Pass right by your own Take the next girl, promenade We'll sing it as you roam Be it ever so humble There's no place like home
OPENER - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)
4 ladies chain 3/4 around you go Heads star thru..square thru 3 you know 3 hands round you go, make a left hand star Turn it once around but not too far Back now with a right hand star..looking for your own Give her a twirl and promenade You gonna swing it as you roam Be it ever so humble There's no place like home
FIGURE (ALTERNATE) Basic, corner progression
1 & 3 (2 & 4) lead to the right & circle to a line Head men break, go up & back in time Pass thru, wheel & deal that floor Centers sweep 1/4 more Square thru 4, 4 hands around you roam Box the gnat, promenade, she's now your very own Be it ever so humble There's no place like home

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there
Which seek thro' the world, is ne'er met elsewhere
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home
There's no place like home!
An exile from home splendor dazzles in vain
Oh give me my lowly thatched cottage again
The birds singing gaily that came at my call
And gave me the peace of mind dearer than all
Home, home, sweet, sweet home
There's no place like home, there's no place like home!
