Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado round that corner girl, then you see saw your taw
Join 8 hands, circle left around that hall
Those gents star right, it's once around you go
With an arm around your girl, star promenade you know
Girls turn back, left allemande and weave around that square
Go in and out around that ring and meet your partner there
Promenade around that ring, it's not so very far
Just brighten up the corner where you are


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads go forward up, come on back,
Square thru 4 hands around that ring you go
Star thru, pass thru, wheel & deal, 2 by 2
A double pass thru, first go left, the next go right
Star thru, pass thru and do a frontier whirl
Swing that corner lady, promenade go round the world
Promenade around that ring, how lucky you are
She'll brighten up the corner where you are

Brighten The Corner Where You Are
 
 

Brighten the corner where you are!
Brighten the corner where you are!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are!

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,
Do not wait to shed your light afar,
To the many duties ever near you now be true,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Brighten the corner where you are!
Brighten the corner where you are!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are!

Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,
Here reflect the bright and Morning Star;
Even from your humble hand the Bread of Life may feed,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Brighten the corner where you are!
Brighten the corner where you are!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are!

Lyrics by Ina Duley Ogden and Charles H. Gabriel.
Recorded by The Brothers Four.
