OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Blues...go ahead and knock upon my door
You can't hurt me anymore

Left allemande, dosado
Men star by the left hand (it's once around you go)
Turn the partner by the right, find that corner girl, left allemande
Swing your honey, promenade
Hey...hey
Ain't love a good thing


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Now heads (sides) promenade 1/2 around the ring
You lead to the right and circle to a line
Move up to the middle and back, star thru and then
Dosado, then do a spin chain thru
Girls circulate 2 times around
Swing that lady, then promenade
Hey...hey
Ain't love a good thing


TAG

Hey...hey
Ain't love a good thing


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Love will take away the pain and all the rain
And make the sun to shine again

Left allemande, dosado
Men star by the left hand (it's once around you go)
Turn the partner by the right, find that corner girl, left allemande
Swing your honey, promenade
Hey...hey
Ain't love a good thing

Ain't Love A Good Thing
 
 

Blues go ahead and knock upon my door
You can't hurt me anymore
Um-um ain't love a good thing
Rain go ahead and let it rain all night
In the morning I'll be dry
Um-um ain't love a good thing?

Ain't it good to know love can take away the rain
And make the sun shine again
And ain't it good to know love can take a lonely dream
And turn it into a real thing
Um-um ain't love a good thing, um-um ain't love a good thing?

Pain find yourself another heart to ache
And another mind to break
Um-um ain't love a good thing
Time find yourself another fool to waste
And another place to stay
Um-um ain't love a good thing?

Ain't it good to know love can take away the rain
And make the sun shine again
And ain't it good to know love can take a lonely dream
And turn it into a real thing
Um-um ain't love a good thing, um-um ain't love a good thing?

Um-um, ain't love a good thing?
Ain't love a good thing, good thing?
Ain't love a good thing?

Lyrics by Dallas Frazier.
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs.
