OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado your corner, turn a left hand round your pet
Gents star by the right now boys, it's once around that set
Allemande left your corner, come back and swing your own
Then join your hands and circle left around that ring you roam
Allemande left your corner girl, grand right & left you go
When you meet your lady fair, just smile and promeno
I hope and pray I'd find a way to bring you back to me
So take her home and swing her now it's city lights for me


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

4 ladies chain across that ring, you turn 'em left and then
Same ladies chain 3/4 round, you turn 'em left again
Now 1 & 3 go up and back, square thru you do
4 hands around and meet the sides, and then go right & left thru
Now turn the girls and square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing that corner lady, boys, and then you promeno
I hope and pray I'd find a way to bring you back to me
So take her home and swing her now it's city lights for me

City Lights

A bright array of city lights
As far as I can see
The great white way shines through the night
For lonely guys like me

The cabarets and honky tonks
Their flashing signs invite
A broken heart to lose itself
In the glow of city lights

Lights that say forget her name
In a glass of sherry wine
Lights that offer other girls
For empty arms like mine

They paint a pretty picture
Of a world that's gay and bright
But it's just a mask of loneliness
Behind those city lights

The world was dark and God made stars
To brighten up the night
Did the God who put those stars above
Make those city lights?

Did He make a place for men to cry
When things don't turn out right
Are we just supposed to run and hide
Behind those city lights

Lights that say forget her love
In a different atmosphere
Lights that lure are nothing
But a masquerade for tears

They paint a pretty picture
But my arms can't hold them tight
And I just can't say I love you
To a street of city lights

Lyrics by Bill Anderson.
Recorded by Ray Price; Mickey Gilley; Jerry Lee Lewis; many others.
