OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Circle left
Grass won't grow on a busy street
You can't take bitter and make it sweet

Left allemande the corner girl and dosado now
4 ladies promenade and around you go
Well now you swing your own and then you go left allemande
Curlique and then the boys run right
Left allemande the corner girl and promenade now
Grass won't grow on a busy street


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway you go
Lead right, circle 4 and make a line (move up and back)
Star thru, do a dosado to a wave now
Boys circulate, boys trade
Recycle then, you swing that corner girl
Left allemande new corner then you promenade
Grass won't grow on a busy street, my friend
You can't take bitter and make it sweet

Grass Won't Grow On A Busy Street
 
 

The wind and I have a lot in common
It seems we're always in a race with time
We never know just where we're goin'
Or think about what we leave behind

Grass won't grow on a busy street
You can't take the bitter and make it sweet
You can't draw water from a well that's dry
Rain won't fall from a clear blue sky
Grass won't grow on a busy street

Now love will bloom in any season
But I found out some time ago
My heart just beats in one direction
I won't give a true love time to grow

Grass won't grow on a busy street
You can't take the bitter and make it sweet
You can't draw water from a well that's dry
Rain won't fall from a clear blue sky
Grass won't grow on a busy street

I never was a little baby
If you don't believe me, ask my dad
Anything I do, I do it right, boys
When I'm good I'm good, but when I'm bad, I'm bad

Grass won't grow on a busy street
You can't take the bitter and make it sweet
You can't draw water from a well that's dry
Rain won't fall from a clear blue sky
Grass won't grow on a busy street

Grass won't grow on a busy street
You can't take the bitter and make it sweet
You can't draw water from a well that's dry
Rain won't fall from a clear blue sky
Grass won't grow on a busy street

Lyrics by Ray Pennington.
Recorded by Kenny Price; Jeannie Seely.
