Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
I have travelled all around this country
In my time I thought I'd seen it all

Left allemande, come back a dosado
Men star by the left and you roll it round
Turn thru at home then do a left allemande
Swing your girl around and promenade
And high up above the statue of an unknown soldier
Old Glory was waving in the air


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and get me 4 now
Around the corner lady dosado
Swing thru 2 by 2, then the boys run right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel full around and slide thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade
There's so many things I love about this country
America's the greatest land of all


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Americana, picture of a people proud and free
Americana, you're still what living means to me

Circle left
Americana, picture of a people proud and free
Americana, you're still what living means to me

Americana
 
 

I've traveled all around this country
In my time I thought I'd seen it all
But today I took a detour down a back road
Through a little town whose name I can't recall

There were old men on benches playing checkers
Children playing hop scotch on the square
And high above a statue of an unknown soldier
Old glory was waving in the air

Suddenly I realized what I'd too long forgotten
Chill rose up like mountains on my skin
Overcome with a feeling
I knew I was seeing
America all over again

Americana
Picture of a people proud and free
Americana
And I'll keep holding to the dream
You're still what living means to me

I knew the stop would throw me off my schedule
But I parked around behind the Five and Dime
There's something about a small town in the Summer
Like a Norman Rockwell picture back in time

Kids were courting at the Rexall soda fountain
Like we did before they built the shopping mall
I saw so many reasons why I love this country
You know some things never really change at all

As I left the two-lane road
And pulled back on that super high way
I thought of what I'd seen back in that town
And it hit me like a freight train
That a stone's throw from the fast lane
America is still safe and sound

Lyrics by Larry Alderman, Rich Fagan and Patti Ryan.
Recorded by Moe Bandy.
