Round for 8

Newcastle music

Meet all, back again, set to your own and to the next. That again. Arm all with your own by the right, men all fall with your left hands into the middle. Women go round them to your places. arms again with your own and women left hands in men go about them towards the left to your places.
Side all with your own and change places with them. Side with the next and change places with them. The first man and third woman take hands and meet, the first woman and third man lead out again then hold up your hands the other four cast off and come under your arms to their places. The other four the like.
Arm all with your woman and change places. Arm with the next and change places. Now every man is with his own woman in the contrary place. Fall back from each other, four and four a breast to each wall, turn and change places with your opposites. Fall back from each other four by four along the room, turn single. Change places with your opposite so each falls into his place as at first.
