OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Plus

All four ladies chain go straight across that ring
Chain the ladies back, dopaso, partner left
Turn the corners by the right, turn the partner left
Put the head ladies center with a teacup chain and go
Well you made life cheery when yo called me dearie
'Twas down where the green grass grows
Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore a tulip
And I wore a big red rose


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head two couples promenade halfway around the ring
Down the middle and pass the ocean there, extend
Do a linear cycle now, move on along somehow
Pass thru with a partner trade and roll, then right & left grand
Grand right and left around, when you meet that lady
Swing the corner girl and promenade
Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore a tulip
And I wore a big red rose


TAG

Yes, I wore a big red rose

When You Wore A Tulip (And I Wore a Big Red Rose)
 
 

I met you in a garden in an old Kentucky town
The sun was shining down, you wore a gingham gown
I kissed you as I placed a yellow tulip in your hair
Upon my coat you pinned a rose so rare
Time has not changed your loveliness, you're just as sweet to me
I love you, yet I can't forget the days that used to be

When you wore a tulip, a sweet yellow tulip
And I wore a big red rose
When you caressed me, 'twas then heaven blessed me
What a blessing, no one knows
You made life cheery when you called me "Dearie"
'Twas down where the bluegrass grows
Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore that tulip
And I wore a big rose

The love you vowed to cherish has not faltered through the years
You banish all my fears, your voice like music cheers
You are the same sweet girl I knew in happy days of old
Your hair is silver, but your heart is gold
Red roses blush no longer in your cheeks so sweet and fair
It seems to me, dear, I can see white roses blooming there

When you wore a tulip, a sweet yellow tulip
And I wore a big red rose
When you caressed me, 'twas then Heaven blessed me
What a blessing, no one knows
You made life cheery when you called me "Dearie"
'Twas down where the blue grass grows
Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore that tulip
And I wore a big red rose

Composed by Percy Wenrich.
Lyrics by Jack Mahoney.
Recorded by American Quartet; Gene Kelly and Judy Garland.
