Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands, circle to the left go round the ring
Circle to the left, go walkin on heel and toe
Allemande left the corner, come back dosado
Men star left go once around you know
Box the gnat and pull her by, the corner allemande
Come back one a dosado and promenade the land
Promenade along to the big bonanza
*Home you go with little Joe
He's the one for you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*He's the boss, they call him Hoss
*Home again with daddy Ben


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

One and three you promenade go halfway
Down the middle right and left thru, turn the girl and then
Square thru four hands you do, meet those two
Right and left thru, turn and dive thru
Square thru three hands round and the corner lady swing
Swing that lady go round and then you promenade the ring
Promenade along to the big bonanza
*Home you go with little Joe
He's the one for you


TAG

For he is the one for you

Bonanza
 
 

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.
