This easy little waltz was written especially for the Country Moon Bootscooters
from Hervey Bay who frequent the Boat Club to dance to Buddy's music.
Buddy is the resident singer there and among other songs, he always
features Delilah  in his repertoire .  I know they will  get a lot of pleasure out of dancing this waltz - and I hope that YOU do too.

For those of you who don't know where Hervey Bay is, it is in Qld, Australia and the climate is almost perfect most of the year - the temperature rarely goes over 29 and if it gets cool in the winter months it always warms up by mid morning.

It is adjacent to Fraser Island which is the largest sand island in the world and the whales come into Hervey Bay to have their calves between August and November each year.  It's a lovely place to live and a great place to visit!

See you on the floor sometime......  Jan
