Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around your corner, see-saw 'round your own
Men star by the right, you turn it 'round you roam
Back by the left, to the same girl you box the gnat
Go right & left grand, the wrong way, go walkin' round the track
Go all the way 'round, dosado, once around your man
Swing this guy, once around, then left allemande
*Promenade around that bonanza
Swing old Hoss, he's the boss, he's the man for you


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head 2 ladies chain then you turn 'em
Swing star thru (equiv: swing thru, slide thru),
right there with Little Joe
Go right & left thru, turn your girl and dive thru
Pass thru & swing that corner girl you know
Left allemande new corner, then weave around that ring
Go in and out, around you go then promenade that Jane
Promenade around that bonanza
Swing Little Joe, don't you know, he's the boy for you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Promenade around the Ponderosa
Swing old Ben, once again, he's the man for you


(Sequence: figure for heads twice, middle break, figure for sides twice, closer)

Bonanza Lyrics ID: 1107

We got a right to pick a little fight--Bonanza! Bonanza!
If anyone fights any one of us
He's gotta fight with me!

We're not a one to saddle up and run--Bonanza! Bonanza!
Anyone of us who starts a little fuss
Knows he can count on me
One for four, four for all
This we guarantee

We got a right to pick a little fight--Bonanza! Bonanza!
If anyone fights any one of us
He's gotta fight with me!

(New words added for the TV series)
We chased lady luck, 'til we finally struck Bonanza.
With a gun and a rope and a hat full of hope
We planted our family tree.
We got hold of a pot of gold, Bonanza.
With a horse and a saddle, and a range full of cattle
How rich can a fellow be?

On this land we put our brand
Cartwright is the name, fortune smiled
The day we filed the Ponderosa claim.
Here in the West, we're livin' the best, Bonanza
If anyone fights any one of us, he's gotta fight with me, Bonanza.

Hoss and Joe and Adam know every rock and pine
No one works, fights, or eats, like those boys of mine.
Here we stand in the middle of a grand Bonanza.
With a gun and a rope and a hatful of hope
We planted our family tree.
We got hold of a potful of gold, Bonanza.

With a houseful of friends where the rainbow ends
How rich can a fellow be?
On this land we put our brand, Cartwright is the name
Fortune smiled, the day we filed the Ponderosa claim.
Here in the west we're livin' the best Bonanza.

With the friendliest, fightingist, loving band
That ever set foot in the promised land
And we're happier than them all.
That's why we call it Bonanza...Bonanza...Bonanza...

Lyrics by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.
Recorded by Marty Gold; Johnny Cash & Lorne Green.
