Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Join hands and circle left, go walking round I say
Four ladies roll away, you circle left that way
Allemande left your corner and you weave around the ring
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
You meet your girl, you dosado and promenade her home
Take a long walk, go all the way
Home you go and give her a swing just once
Cross over the bridge


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up and back
Then you flutter wheel, sweep 1/4 to your left
The slide thru, square thru 3/4 and then
Separate around one, down the middle pass thru
Swing thru two by two, the men run
Wheel and deal, swing your corner, then you promenade
Take a long walk, go all the way
Home you go and give her a swing just once
Cross over the bridge

Cross Over The Bridge Lyrics ID: 1897

If you're a guy who's had a gal
In each and every port
And you've forgot the rules of love
That life has always taught
And if you broke as many hearts
As ripples in a stream
Well, brother, here's the only way
That you can be redeemed

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

If you have built a boat
To take you to the greener side
And if the boat is built
Of ev'ry lie you ever lied
You'll never reach the Promised Land of love
I guarantee
'Cause lies cannot hold water
And you'll sink into the sea

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

I know it isn't easy
To resist temptation's call
But think of how your broken heart
Will hurt you when you fall
'Cause some day you will find
That you are hopelessly in love
And she'll belong to someone else
As sure as stars above

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

Cross over the bridge

Lyrics by Bennie Benjamin and George Weiss.
Recorded by Patti Page.
