Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade go walking around the ring
Come home and swing your man and then
Join all of your hands and start to circle
Left allemande and weave around that ring
She found me outside one Sunday morning
Dosado and promenade her man
This bed of roses that I lay on
It's the only kind of life I understand


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads lead to the right and there
You circle make the line go forward up and back
Pass thru and wheel & deal, do the double pass thru
The first two left, the next two right and square thru
4 hands around to the corner lady swing
Swing that lady, promenade her man
This bed of roses that I lay on
It's the only kind of life I understand

Bed Of Roses Lyrics ID: 1918

She was called a scarlet woman by the people
Who would go to church but left me in the street
With no parents of my own, I never had a home
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat

She found me outside one Sunday morning
Taking money from a man I didn't know
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
A woman of the streets this Lady Rose

This bed of roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of roses where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand

She was a handsome woman, just thirty-five
Who was spoken to town by very few
She managed a late evening business
Like most of the town wished they could do

And I learned all the things that a man should know
From a woman not approved of, I suppose
But she died knowing that I really loved her
Off life's bramble bush, I picked a rose

This bed of roses that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of roses where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand

Lyrics by Harold Reid.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
