Cue Sheet
 

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
*Snow-covered ground in early winter
Ground is hard and stays that way all year

Left allemande you go, run home and dosado
Left allemande and weave around the ring
Well, there's nothing like country Christmas
Swing your own and promenade
They're just singin', dancin', makin' cookies, popcorn strings you know
There's nothing like country Christmas


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Oh, family will all be together
Grandpa will pull out his old guitar


*And when the feast was laid upon the table
We bowed our heads and said a Christmas prayer


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru 4 hands around now
With the outsides you make a right hand star
Heads (Sides) star left in the middle and then
Right & left thru, you rollaway a half sashay
Box the gnat, pull 'em by and go left allemande
Come back one and promenade
They're just singin', dancin', makin' cookies, popcorn strings you know
There's nothing like country Christmas


TAG

Yes, there's nothing like country Christmas

Country Christmas
 
 

Snow is falling faster now and dusting on a hill
Skaters on the river, gentle dancers in the chill
The children's laughter ringing as they overturn their sleighs
Waiting for a country Christmas day

The chimneys hold the promise of a friendly fire inside
And so it's after bedtime, all the children's eyes are wide
There might be cakes and shortbread on a shiny silver tray
Waiting for a country Christmas day

Christmas in the country, like another time and place
I see it in the little things, in every smiling face
It's crystal nights and far off lights, and children count the days
Country Christmas and love will lead the way

Dogs run after snowflakes in a never ending chase
Soft lights through the window, frost is delicate as lace
And reunited loved ones who've been far too long away
Waiting for a country Christmas day

Christmas in the country, like another time and place
I see it in the little things, in every smiling face
It's crystal nights and far off lights, and children count the days
Country Christmas and love will lead the way

Country Christmas and love will lead the way

Lyrics by Greg Adams.
Recorded by Roger Whittaker.
