Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Walk all around the corner, see saw your taw
Men star by the right, turn the girl across the hall
Men star by the right 3/4 round the land
Do an allemande with your left hand and box the gnat at home
Four little ladies promenade, go round the ring
Home you go and swing and whirl, then promenade her
And in my hour of need, I am indeed
Alone again, naturally


FIGURE   

Heads right & left thru, sides roll away
Heads pass thru, separate around one, make a line that way
Move up to the middle and back, pass thru
Now tag the line, those in the lead u-turn back and swing
Left allemande and a grand old right & left
Grand right & left go round and when you meet her promenade
In my hour of need, I am indeed
Alone again, naturally

Alone Again (Naturally)
 
 

In a little while from now
If I'm not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to whoever
What it's like when you're shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying: "My God, that's tough
She's stood him up"
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to, and who wouldn't do
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
All about God and His mercy
Or if He really does exist
Why did He desert me
In my hour of need
I truly am, indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts
Broken in the world that can't be mended
Left unattended
What do we do? What do we do?

Alone again, naturally

Now looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul,
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally

Alone again, naturally

Lyrics by Gilbert O'Sullivan.
