OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*There's a white Christmas in my hometown
Where the trees are snowy shining bright

Left allemande the corner, turn your partner by the right
Those men star by the left around tonight
Turn your partner by the right hand to the corner
Left allemande swing your own and promenade
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's coming
Cause it's Merry Christmas here in my hometown


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the head two couples promenade go halfway
Come down the middle do a touch 1/4 and you walk & dodge
Swing thru tonight left the boy run right
Gonna bend your line and do the right & left thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 round now
Swing the corner lady promenade for me
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's coming
Cause it's Merry Christmas here in my hometown


*There are jingle bells and Christmas carols ringing
By the children who are walking in the street

Christmas In My Hometown
 
 

There's a white Christmas in my hometown
Where the streets are snowy, shining bright
And the lights on all the Christmas trees are burning
For old Santa's sure to come this very night

There are jingle bells and Christmas carols singin'
By the children who are walking in the street
Folks are smilin' and they're sayin' merry Christmas
For there's joy in their hearts as they meet

Oh, the Christmas chimes are ringing in the tower
Jingle bells can be heard all around
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's comin'
'Cause it's merry Christmas here in my hometown

I can hear the reindeer in the distance
All the sleigh bells are ringing loud and clear
Little eyes are closed in their slumber
They are waiting for old Santa to appear

Oh, the Christmas chimes are ringing in the tower
Jingle bells can be heard all around
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's comin'
'Cause it's merry Christmas here in my hometown

Lyrics by Lassaye Holmes.
Recorded by Charley Pride.
