Cue Sheet


4 ladies promenade inside of the ring
Right back home and swing your man, everybody swing
Join up hands, circle left, go walking around the ring
Left allemande and weave the ring singing
Sweet Maria don't you cry
Dosado and promenade
I'll be coming back to you again
Sweet Maria don't you cry

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around you go
Around the corner dosado
Swing thru two by two, girls fold and then
Peel the top and then go right & left thru
Square thru 3/4 round, that corner lady swing
Swing that girl around and promenade
I'll be coming back to you again
Sweet Maria don't you cry

Milica (Sweet Maria)

Count each day when I go
Then before you know
Time will fly before your eyes
And you will never realize I'm gone

Though we two have to part
I'll leave you my heart
Keep it close beside your own
And you will never be alone, sweetheart

Sweet Maria, don't you cry
I can see tears in your eyes
So while we say goodbye
Smile Maria, don't you cry

Let me keep the memory of
Laughing eyes so full of love
Happy days I spent with you
Wait for me, Maria, I'll be true

Time moves quick as a wink
Faster than you think
Round and round the clock keeps turning
You know that my heart is burning, too

Sweet Maria, don't be blue
I'll return again to you
Love like ours can never die
Smile for me, Maria, don't you cry

Maria, don't you cry
