SDB 145 - Shades Of Gray Bob Thomas

 

Opener:       Side Face Grand Square

When the world and I were young

Just yesterday

Life was such a simple game

A child could play Allemande and Weave

It was easy then to tell right from wrong

Easy then to tell weak from strong

When a man should stand and fight

Or just go along

 

Figure:

Well those Heads/Sides Promenade Halfway you go

Down the middle Square Thru 4 hands you know

All the way, do the Right and Left Thru

Veer to the Left Ferris Wheel

Well those centers Square Thru Three hands and then

Swing that girl Promenade again

Today there is no black or white

Only shades of gray

 

Middle Break:                SFGS

I remember when the answers seemed so clear

We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear

Allemande and Weave

It was easy then to tell truth from lies

Selling out from compromise

Who to love and who to hate

The foolish from the wise

 

Closer:         SFGS

It was easy then to know what was fair

When to keep and when to share

How much to protect your heart

And how much to care

Allemande and Weave

But today there is no day or night

Today there is no dark or light

Today there is no black or white

Only shades of gray

 

Tag:            Only shades of gray
