OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

1 & 3 (2 & 4) gonna promenade halfway around that ring
Down the middle right & left thru and turn that pretty thing
Slide thru, pass thru, left square thru you go
Just 3/4, find your own and box the gnat you know
Dosado just once around, then go left allemande
Come back home and swing her once, promenade the land
Leave a lot of happy tracks and keep this in mind
Others have to follow in the path you leave behind


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up and back, do a split square thru
Opposite right, then face the sides (heads), finish it now you do
Heads (sides) turn back, centers in, cast off 3/4 round
Centers square thru 4 hands, the ends star thru, don't frown
Dosado your corner, swing her once around
Allemande left new corner, come back one promenade the town
Leave a lot of happy tracks and keep this in mind
Others have to follow in the path you leave behind


TAG

Yes, others will be glad to follow those happy tracks you leave behind

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.
 

Comments

The OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER contains old time 'circular' choregraphy:
The Box The Gnat is to be done by everyone (not just the centers).
