Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across that ring now
You roll away and circle left you know
4 ladies roll away, you circle left that way
Left allemande and weave the ring
*She found me outside one Sunday morning
Dosado and promenade
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
A woman of the street this lady, Rose


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru and count me 4 hands
Around the corner do a dosado, make a wave
Do a linear cycle now, go walking around somehow
Slide thru and then go right & left thru
Pass to the center, square thru 3 now for the band
Swing that corner lady round and promenade the land
This bed of Rose's where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Those sides square thru and count me 4 hands
Around the corner do a dosado
Touch 1/4 then, scoot back around my friend
Boys run and then go right & left thru
Send her dixie style, you make a wave and then
Boys cross fold, swing that corner, promenade the land
This bed of Rose's where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*And I learned all the things that a man should know
But she died knowing that I really loved her
Off life's bramble bush, I picked a Rose


CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across that ring now
You roll away and circle left you know
4 ladies roll away, you circle left that way
Left allemande and weave the ring
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 street this lady, Rose

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.
