Summer Roads RIV 716
Jack O'Leary

OPENER / BREAK / CLOSER

Sides face, Grand Square
There are blossoms on the hawthorn that scent the morning breeze
And the oak and the ash and the copper beech are covered down with leaves
And the road is white in the morning light as it runs down from my door
And the lark is high in the golden sky, and Iím on my way once more

Four Ladies Promenade once around that ring
Swing your man and Promenade  
Summer roads by summer streams, where I live my winter dreams
And the good times always start down summer roads

Break Lyrics

There is music all around me in every bush and tree
And the cuckoo and the corncrake keep calling out to me
And the linnetís song rings all day long to greet me as I go
And as I pass in the roadside grass, the magpie nods "hello"

Closer Lyrics

In the quiet of the evening I rosin up my bow
And I start in nice and easy, with something soft and slow
Thereís a faster beat in the village street and the friends all start to sway
And the fiddle sings and the laughter rings and they dance 'til the break of day

Extra Lyrics

Thereís a corner in my memory  where all the good times stay
In all my summer ramblings there are good times every day
'round every bend, I find a friend, a welcome and a smile
And pleasant hours in fields of flowers, a memory every mile

FIGURE

Heads (Sides) Promenade halfway you know
Walk in and Square Thru four hands & go
All the way and then do the Right & Left Thru
Turn the girl and then do an Eight Chain 2 
Touch a Quarter, Scoot Back and go
Swing that Corner, Promenade
Summer roads by summer streams, where I live my winter dreams
And the good times always start down summer roads
