I was thrilled when Muriel requested this dance because the song is dear to my heart.

My Dad used to sing this song to my Mum and it is in my earliest memories!!

No wonder I am a country music fan… I was brain washed when I was just a baby!! 

Hope you enjoy the dance     See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
