Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I'm walking in the moonlight beneath the old gum tree
Dreaming of a Sheila who's been so good to me

Do an allemande left your corner, come back and dosado
Left allemande your corner and weave the ring you know
Weave it in and weave it out until you meet that maid
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl and then you promenade
*Walking in the moonlight beneath the old gum tree

*Yodel or Dreaming of ___ who's been so good to me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) two couples rollaway, go up to the middle and back
Star thru, do the right & left thru and turn around that track
Now swing thru two by two, the boys run right and then
You ferris wheel and the center two will zoom back my friend
New centers square thru 3 hands around you go now
Swing and whirl that corner girl and promenade her home now
Walking in the moonlight beneath the old gum trees
*With a wallaby stew and a damper too
That's where I long to be


(*Dreaming of a Sheila who's been so good to me)


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 little ladies chain across
Gents, turn 'em around and don't get lost
You join up hands and make a little ring
And you circle left like any old thing
Do an allemande left, go allemande thar
It's right and left and a little old star
The men swing in with a right hand then
You've got that back up star
Shoot that star and weave the ring and
The Dingos howl and the Bonyips sing
And you promenade just like that
*With the back-jumping Maggie and the leather-bellied Pat
Walking in the moonlight beneath the old gum trees


*Yodel or Dreaming of ___ who's been so good to me


CLOSER    Basic

Now 4 little men you promenade, go once around the ring now
Get on home and box the gnat, and give that girl a swing now
Join up hands and circle to the left around you go now
Left allemande that corner and weave around that ring
I'm walking in the moonlight beneath the old gum tree
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl and promenade her please
*I'm dreaming of a Sheila who's been so good to me

*Yodel or Dreaming of ___ who's been so good to me

Happy Tracks Lyrics ID: 2725

I know that you've heard people say many, many times
You don't pass through this world but once
You get yours and I'll get mine
But I've got a philosophy I believe I'd rather go by
And if you'll just listen you may want to give it a try

Leave a lotta happy tracks as you go down life's road
Leave a lotta happy tracks everywhere you go
Leave a lotta happy tracks and keep this in mind
Others will have to follow in the path you leave behind

As you walk the tangled streets of life notice your fellow man
And when he gets in trouble, you just lend him a helping hand
Sow good seeds in the fields of life as you go along
Let others reap your happiness a long time after you're gone

Leave a lotta happy tracks as you go down life's road
Leave a lotta happy tracks everywhere you go
Leave a lotta happy tracks and keep this in mind
Others will have to follow in the path you leave behind

Don't ever use a good friend for a personal gain
To gain wealth and lose one friend would only be in vain
Let your happy tracks be many, leave them everywhere you go
Others will have to harvest each and every seed you sow

Leave a lotta happy tracks as you go down life's road
Leave a lotta happy tracks everywhere you go
Leave a lotta happy tracks and keep this in mind
Others will have to follow in the path you leave behind

Lyrics by Ray Pennington.
Recorded by Kenny Price.
