Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Wish I were down on some blue bayou
With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand
But the road I'm on don't seem to go there
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am

Circle left
Well, the way I am, don't match my shackles
Left allemande, then swing and promenade
I can almost see that bobber dancing
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4 round now
Those heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way and go
Heads square thru 4 hands you go there
You wanta meet that pair & do a right & left thru
Come on swing thru and then, boys trade and turn thru
Swing my corner, promenade
I can almost see that bobber dancing
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am


FIGURE (ALTERNATE) (Plus 1)    A1, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you go now
Right & left thru, turn the girl, slide thru
Touch 1/4, triple scoot, boys run right
Slide thru, then pass the ocean go, ladies trade
Recycle and swing the corner lady
Left allemande and then you promenade
I can almost see that bobber dancing
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am


FIGURE (ALTERNATE) (Plus 2)    Plus, unknown progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around now
Right & left thru and turn the girl, veer left
Cross fire, girls run to the right
Touch 1/4, boys run around the girl, pass the ocean
Ladies trade and scoot back across now
Swing the corner lady and promenade
I can almost see that bobber dancing
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Wish I enjoyed what makes my living
Did what I do with a willing hand
Some would run, well that ain't like me
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am

Circle left
Well, the way I am, don't match my shackles
Left allemande, then swing and promenade
I can almost see that bobber dancing
So I'll just dream and keep on being the way I am


TAG

Do an allemande left, come home & swing your own
