Circle left in a ring
Men star right and turn it there
Left allemande, dosado
Bow real low and weave the ring
Yes, you're with him, I know
Swing your partner, promenade along
Why do I need you so?
But for love I'd be gone

FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round
You turn and chain them straight across there
Heads square thru count to 4
Dosado the corner girl
Spin chain thru once for me
Girls turn back and couples circulate
You promenade her along
But for love I'd be gone


But for love I'd be gone

But For Love  (1967)

So it's rainin' again
And the wind's up in a roar
I've been swept through the streets

So I'll crawl back later on
To be washed up at your door.
But you're with him I know
Why do I need you so
But for love I'd be gone.

With my back to the wind
That makes it so hard to stay
I'm wondering what it is about you
And harder yet to live without you.

But there's nothing's here for me
Like a prisoner I'm bound
So I'll look all around
But for you I'd be free.
But for you I'd be gone on a jet

Leavin' today for a place in the sun far away.
But the rain still comes down
And the chilly winds keep blowing
Down these cold empty streets
I'm wondering what keeps me going.

Why do you linger on
So I say to myself
But for love I'd be gone.
And my heart cries to me

But for love I'd be gone...

Lyrics by Terry Cashman, Gene Pistilli and T.P. West.
Recorded by Eddy Arnold.
