Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

(6 beat musical lead)
Sides face, grand square
Living in the promise land
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels

Four ladies chain across that ring
You chain her back and promenade I sing
And room for everyone
Living in the promised land


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you square thru four hands around
Dosado one time and now
Swing thru and then boys you trade, boys run right
You bend the line, star thru and dive thru
Square thru go three, you swing your corner
You promenade you see
And no place to fall

And room for everyone living in the promised land

Living In The Promise Land Lyrics ID: 2315

Give us your tired and weak
And we will make them strong
Bring us your foreign songs
And we will sing along
Leave us your broken dreams
We'll give them time to mend
There's still a lot of love
Living in the promise land

Living in the promise land
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels
There is a winding road
Across the shifting sand
And room for everyone
Living in the promise land

So we came from a distant isle
Nameless woman, faithless child
Like a bad dream
Until there was no room at all
No place to run and no place to fall

Give us your daily bread
We have no shoes to wear
No place to call our own
Only this cross to bear
We are the multitude
Lend us a helping hand
Is there no love anymore
Living in the promise land

Living in the promise land
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels
There is a winding road
Across the shifting sand
And room for everyone
Living in the promise land

And room for everyone
Living in the promise land

Lyrics by David Lynn Jones.
Recorded by Willie Nelson.
