OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade go once around that ring
Come on back and swing there with your date
Hey join up hands, circle left go walkin' around the hall
Left allemande and weave the ring
Wishin' I was in your arms a sleepin'
Dosado and promenade
I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads lead to the right
and there you circle Make a line
go forward eight and back
Pass thru and tag the line, face it in
Pass thru and tag the line again, face in
Square thru count to 4 go around now
Swing that corner, promenade
I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again


TAG

Wishin' I was in your arms again

SEQUENCE (Opener, figure heads twice, break, figure sides twice, closer, tag)

Mountain Pass

Well, I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Those truckers they all flash their lights at me
This highway ain't the very best companion
'Cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be

The moonlight on the snow just sets me thinking
'Bout the way your smile shines upon your face
And I know this ain't the last beer I'll be drinking
Before I reach my final resting place
Oh, I...

Wish that I was in your arms a-sleeping
Dreaming of the sweet love we just made
But I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again

Oh my wheels are running hard against this mountain
I finally crossed the Archuleta line
Another hour and I'll be with my darlin'
To dry those lonesome tears that she's been cryin'
But I...

Wish that I was in your arms a-sleeping
Dreaming of the sweet love we just made
But I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again

I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Those truckers they all flash their lights at me
Well this highway ain't the very best companion
'Cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be
Oh, I...

Wish that I was in your arms a-sleeping
Dreaming of the sweet love we just made
But I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again

I am runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight
Wishin' I was in your arms again

Lyrics by Dan Fogelberg.
