Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square (or teacup chain) (or teacup stroll)
Once there was spring and the flowers were gentle and sweet
I inhaled the goodness of love and my life was complete

Left allemande and weave the ring
I reached for the rose and its petals were brushed by my touch
Dosado and promenade
I hurt your heart and the thorns are now hurting too much


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around to the corner one, dosado
Swing thru go two by two, boys run to the right
Wheel & deal and do a right & left thru
Dive thru (or pass to the center) and square thru 3/4 around you go
Swing the corner lady, promenade, oh yes
Instead of the roses
There still remains the thorns


CLOSER    Plus

Head ladies center, teacup chain
Roses and thorns, so close together they grow
There's madness and sadness, emotions that everyone knows

Left allemande and weave the ring
When there is one the other can't be far behind
Dosado, promenade
I held the roses and the stems with the thorns are all mine

Roses And Thorns
 
 

There are the roses and there are the thorns
There's a time for happiness and there's a time to mourn
There's a time to love, then when love is faded and worn, oh, oh
Instead of the roses there are the thorns

Once there was spring and the flowers were gentle and sweet
I inhaled the goodness of love and my life was complete
I reached for a rose and its petals were crushed by my touch, oh, oh
I loved too hard and the thorns are now hurtin' too much

Winter comes on with no mercy for those unprepared
Coldness creeps in on a heart that a dead love leaves bare
Loving too much leaves a wreckage like that of a storm, yes, it does
Instead of the roses now I am holding the thorns

Roses and thorns so close together they grow
Gladness and sadness emotions that everyone knows
When there is one, the other can't be far behind, oh no
I've held the rose and the stem with the thorns is now mine

Roses and thorns so close together they grow
Gladness and sadness emotions that everyone knows
When there is one the other can't be far behind, no it can't
I've held the rose and the stem with the thorns is now mine

Lyrics by Naomi Martin.
Recorded by Jeannie C. Riley.
