Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

(Bow to your partner, bow to your corner)
Walk around your corner, seesaw round your partner
Men star right, go once around
Pick up your own with an arm around, star promenade, go walking round
Girls roll back, left allemande and weave that ring
Alberta Bound, Alberta Bound
Dosado, promenade around
Alberta Bound, Alberta Bound
I want to be Alberta Bound


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade, halfway round the ring, I say
Down the middle and do a right & left thru
Roll away a half sashay, rock up to the middle and back away
Slide thru and do a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, corner swing
Left allemande, promenade the ring
Alberta Bound, Alberta Bound
We're gonna be Alberta Bound

Alberta Bound
 
 

Oh, the prairie lights are burning bright,
The Chinook wind is a-moving in.
Tomorrow night I'll be Alberta bound.
Though I've done the best I could,
My old luck ain't been so good.
And tomorrow night I'll be Alberta bound.

No one-eyed man could e'er forget.
The Rocky Mountain sunset.
It's a pleasure just to be Alberta bound.
I long to see my next of kin;
To know what kind of shape they're in.
An' tomorrow night, I'll be Alberta bound.

Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.
Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.

Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.
Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.

Oh, the skyline of Toronto,
Is somethin' you'll get onto,
But they say you've got to live there for a while.
And if you got the money.
You can get yourself a honey.
A written guarantee to make you smile.

But it's snowin' in the city,
And the streets are brown and gritty.
And I know there's pretty girls all over town.
Which never seem to find me.
And the one I left behind me,
Is the reason that I'll be Alberta bound.

Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.
Alberta bound, Alberta bound:
It's good to be Alberta bound.
It's good to be Alberta bound.

Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot.
