Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
My ship lies waiting in the harbor
Tomorrow for old England she sails

Allemande left your corner, dosado
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Swing your girl and promenade her home
For you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade your girl halfway
Down the middle and pass the ocean, extend
Girls trade, boys run around the girls, boys trade
Couples trade and bend the line
Square thru 3/4 round
Swing your corner and promenade
For you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

Last Farewell Lyrics ID: 285

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell
For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

I heard there's a wicked war a blazing
And the taste of war I know so very well
Even now I see the foreign flag a raising
Their guns on fire as we sail into hell
I have no fear of death; it brings no sorrow
But how bitter will be this last farewell
For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

Though death and darkness gather all about me
And my ship be torn apart upon the seas
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
In the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
And should I return safe home again to England
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dell
For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful
And I have loved you dearly
More dearly than the spoken word can tell

Lyrics by Roger Whittaker and R.A. Webster.
