Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands circle left beneath that desert moon
Reverse back single file along the old sand dune
The girls back track then turn your partner right
Allemande left that corner, grand right & left tonight
In and out around that square, meet your partner there
Dosado and then you promenade
Take her back to your tent, that's where she wants to be
With the shiek of Araby


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

The head 2 ladies chain turn that girl around
Roll away go forward up and back
Star thru, square thru 4 hands around you go
4 hands around that world, then do a frontier whirl
Now those 2 ladies chain and turn that girl around
Then cross trail and swing that corner round
Promenade hand in hand across that burning sand
With the shiek of Araby

The Sheik Of Araby
 
 

Over the desert wild and free
Rides the bold Sheik of Araby
His Arab band at his command
Follows his love's caravan
Under the shadow of the palms
He sings to call her to his arms

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

While the stars are fading in the dawn
Over the desert they'll be gone
His captured bride close by his side
Swift as the wind they will ride
Proudly he scorns her smile or tear
Soon he will conquer love by fear.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,

I'm the Sheik of Araby.

Composed by Ted Snyder.
Lyrics by Harry B. Smith and Francis Wheeler.
Recorded by Merle Travis; The Beatles; Lou Monte.
