Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four little ladies promenade go walkin' round the ring
Get back and give that man a swing
Join up hands and circle go rollin' right along
Left allemande, weave the ring
Wait for the light to shine, shine, shine
Swing the girl and promenade
Don't forsake your brother as he walks the narrow line
Wait for the light to shine


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade, travel halfway around the ring
Lead right and do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, boys run right
Bend the line and do the right and left thru
Slide thru and square thru 3 hands around that ring
Swing that corner, promenade
*Pull yourself together, keep on lookin' for a sign
Wait for the light to shine

Wait For The Light To Shine
 
 

When the road is rocky and you're carrying the load
Wait for the light to shine
If you find your friendless on that weary lonesome road
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Pull yourself together and keep looking for the sign
Wait for the light to shine

Don't forget your brother as you travel through the land
Wait for the light to shine
He may be in trouble and may need a helping hand
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Never give up hope or cast your pearls before the swine
Wait for the light to shine

If your life is empty and you're on your last go round
Wait for the light to shine
If you hear the chime bells on the highway you have found
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
When your friends forsake you and you haven't got a dime
Wait for the light to shine

Don't let trouble fool you and your sins will all be gone
Wait for the light to shine
Don't forget it's darkest just before the break of dawn
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Keep these words before you as you walk that narrow line
Wait for the light to shine

Lyrics by Fred Rose.
Recorded by Roy Acuff; Hank Williams, Jr.; Connie Smith; others.
