Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

The heads star left in Avalon
Corners swing, swing and you whirl
Join hands, circle left go round the town
Whirlaway, left allemande
Here we go, right & left grand
O'er the waves we'll meet again
Promenade your baby round that ring
*We'll all set sail to Avalon
And swing, swing swing


FIGURE    A1, R-H lady progression

The head ladies chain, sides promenade 3/4 round this big ole ring
Come through the heads, star thru, cross trail and then
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl
Allemande left, we'll weave that ring
In and out, promenade and sing
I'll take my love to Avalon
And swing, swing, swing

*We'll take that boat to Avalon

*We'll ride those waves to Avalon

*We'll take that trip to Avalon

Avalon Lyrics ID: 985

Ev'ry morning mem'ries stray
Across the sea where flying fishes play
And as the night is falling
I find that I'm recalling
That blissful, all-enthralling day

I found my love in Avalon
Beside the bay
I left my love in Avalon
And sailed away
I dream of her and Avalon
From dusk 'til dawn
And so I think I'll travel on
To Avalon alone.

Just before I sail'd away,
She said the word I long'd to hear her say,
I tenderly caress'd her
Close to my heart I press'd her
Upon that golden yesterday

I found my love in Avalon
Beside the bay
I left my love in Avalon
And sailed away
I dream of her and Avalon
From dusk 'til dawn
And so I think I'll travel on
To Avalon alone.

Lyrics by Al Jolson and Vincent Rose.
Recorded by Al Jolson.
