Steel Rails    (LM 337)   Ray Brendzy

OPENER

Circle left
Steel Rails, chasing sunshine round the bend
Winding thru the trees like a ribbon in the wind
Men star right go once around in time

Allemande that corner girl,gonna weave the ring so fine

Steel Rails, chasing sunshine round the bend
Swing a little girl then you promenade my friend

And I donít mind not knowing what lies down the track

Because Iím looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back.

FIGURE
Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around in time,

You make a right hand star and turn it so fine

Heads Star left in the middle and you roll it around you go

To the corner girl slide thru. Square thru ĺ  around the ring

Swing a little girl and you promenade I sing
And I donít mind not knowing what lies down the track

Because Iím looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back.

Middle Break

Circle left
The whistle blows, blowing lonesome in my mind

Calling me along that never ending metal line

Men star right go once around in time

Allemande that corner girl,gonna weave the ring so fine

Steel Rails, chasing sunshine round the bend
Swing a little girl then you promenade my friend

And I donít mind not knowing what lies down the track

Because Iím looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back.


CLOSER

Circle left
The sun is shining thru the open box car door

Lying in my mind with the things Iíve done before

Men star right go once around in time

Allemande that corner girl,gonna weave the ring so fine

Steel Rails, chasing sunshine round the bend

Winding thru the trees like a ribbon in the wind
And I donít mind not knowing what lies down the track

Because Iím looking out ahead to keep my mind from turning back.
