I borrowed the roll away; roll away; roll away; sequence from a square dance, because it's fun. To make it work in a contra, I had to bend it around a corner. 2017

Jim H. complained about the Chain into the right and left through -- pointing out it was awkward for the men's hands, so I reversed them. It now starts with a right and left into a chain.
