Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All join hands & circle left, go walking around that ring
Allemande left that corner girl, come home & then you swing
All 4 ladies promenade, once around that land
Oh box the gnat & do the right & left grand
There's too many rivers between me and you
Dosado and promenade her too
There's too many long nights I've turned & I've tossed
Too many rivers to cross


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up & back & roll away a 1/2 sashay
All join hands & circle round you go
4 girls pass thru, separate around just one
Make a line of 4, go up and back
Pass thru, a wheel & deal, do a zoom
Swing the corner lady, promenade
There's too many long nights I've turned & I've tossed
There's too many rivers to cross

Too Many Rivers
 
 

I wish I could come back to you dear
'Cause I know that you want me too
But too much water run under that old bridge
There's too many rivers between me and you

There's too many rivers to cross dear
Too many dreams have been lost
And there's too many long nights that I've turned and tossed
There's too many rivers to cross

Now don't think for a moment I blame only you
We both peeled the fruit on the vine
And when you try to put love back together
There's always a few little pieces that you can't find

Yes, there's too many rivers to cross dear
And there's too many dreams that have been lost
Aah, there's too many long nights that I've turned and I've tossed
There's too many rivers to cross

Lyrics by Harlan Howard.
Recorded by Brenda Lee; Hank Williams Jr..
