Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Join hands, circle to the left
Four ladies rollaway and circle to the left
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
America, America
Dosado and promenade
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru get me 4 hands you know
With the sides you make a right hand star
Heads in the middle make a left hand star, turn it one time
Same two you do the right & left thru
Swing thru and then, swing thru again
Boys run right and promenade
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation, under God, indivisible
With liberty and justice for all

Left allemande and promenade
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea


CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Circle left
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain

Left allemande the corner, turn partner right
Four men star by the left go once around
Turn your partner by the right and your corners allemande
Come back, swing your partner, promenade
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

America The Beautiful
 
 

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stem impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self the country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till souls wax fair as earth and air
And music-hearted sea!

O beautiful for pilgrims feet,
Whose stem impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till paths be wrought through
Wilds of thought
By pilgrim foot and knee!

O beautiful for glory-tale
Of liberating strife
When once and twice,
for man's avail
Men lavished precious life!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee

Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!

Composed by Parke W. Hewins.
Lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates.
Recorded by Kate Smith; many others.
