Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies promenade, you go walking around
Get back home and then swing with your own
Join hands and circle left, go walking along
Do an allemande left and then you weave the ring
*Got to remember I'm not here to stay
Swing a little lady and promenade
**Upward mobility sounds mighty good to me
I just can't wait to get away - hey!


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru it's four hands you go
Dosado the outside pair
Swing thru and then spin the top
Right & left thru, turn the girl 'round my friend
You square thru and go 3/4 round
Swing the corner and promenade
Got to remember I'm not here for long
I'm just living in my temporary home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Got to remember I'm not here to stay
I'll be leaving on judgement day

**Got to remember I'm not here for long
I'm just living in my temporary home

Temporary Home
 
 

A little boy, six years old
A little too used to being alone
Another new mom and dad
Another school, another house that will never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

This is my temporary home, it's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home

Young mom, on her own
She needs a little help, got nowhere to go
She's looking for a job, looking for a way out
'Cause a halfway house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl
"Someday we'll find our place here in this world"

This is our temporary home, it's not where we belong
Windows and rooms that we're passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where we're going
I'm not afraid because I know
This is our temporary home

Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers
"Don't cry for me, I'll see you all someday"
He looks up and says
"I can see God's face"

This is my temporary home, it's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passing through
This was just a stop on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know
This was my temporary home

This is our temporary home

Lyrics by Zac Maloy, Luke Laird and Carrie Underwood.
Recorded by Carrie Underwood.
