Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
It's a long, long way from here to Houston
It's a long, long road from here to home

Left allemande the corner, partner box the gnat now
Girls promenade once inside you roam
When you meet your partner, dosado her
Left allemande, now promenade for me
I think I'd rather be at home in Houston
Than walkin' down this road in Tennessee

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around now
Around the corner lady dosado
Star thru, 2 ladies chain across
Send 'em back a flutter wheel you know
When you're through slide thru, corner swing
Left allemande, now promenade for fun
I'll be there when the sun comes up tomorrow
It's worth it just to see that Houston sun
