Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Lay it softly to your skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Left allemande, weave the ring
Come and lay down by my side
Till the early morning light

Dosado and promenade
Help me make it through the night


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

The heads square thru and go
Around the corner dosado
Swing thru and then, spin the top
Do the right & left thru
Square thru 3/4 round
Corner swing, promenade so light
*All I'm taking is your time
Help me make it through the night


TAG

**And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*And it's sad to be alone

**And I don't want to be alone

Help Me Make It Through The Night
 
 

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose, let it fall
Lay it soft against my skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early morning light
All I'm taking is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I won't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'cause tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I won't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'cause tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't want to be alone
Help me make it through the night

Lyrics by Kris Kristofferson.
