Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Back in my younger days I used to go all night
Now I just stay at home and every thing is all right

Circle left
**Back when I first met you
Allemande left and promenade
But that was so long ago, back in my younger days


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I would do anything, just a stumbling fool
It's a wonder I'm standing here, I've broken so many rules


**Now I dance with you every night


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four, dosado
Swing thru, go spin the top
Right & left thru, square thru three
Swing your corner, promenade
But that was so long ago, back in my younger days


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies chain across that ring,
You rollaway and circle left
Four ladies rollaway
Do an allemande left and weave the ring
Talk about a dream come true
Swing your girl and promenade
But that was so long ago, back in my younger days


TAG

But that was so long ago, back in my younger days

Back In My Younger Days
 
 

Back in my younger days, I used to go all night
Now I just stay at home, and every thing is all right
Back when I first met you, I used to live in a haze
That was so long ago, back in my younger days

I would do anything, just a stumbling fool
It's a wonder I'm standing here, I've broken so many rules
Now I dance with you every night, and still I'm so amazed
Your love made a man of me, back in my younger days

Oh, it doesn't seem that long ago
You, you make it feel like the first time we made love
And I ain't ever getting enough
Well, well, well....

As I go through the photographs, I laugh and you turn the page
It's the ballad of me and you, from such an innocent age
Talk about a dream come true, we reinvented the phrase
It's better than it used to be, back in my younger days

Back in my younger days,
Back in my younger days
It's better than it used to be
Back in my younger days

Lyrics by Danny Flowers.
Recorded by Don Williams.
 
Comments

Original sequence had a "Swing Thru 3 Hands" followed by "Fan The Top".
I changed it to "Swing Thru" followed by "Spin The Top".
