*There is a restart on wall 2 after count 32     *There is a restart on wall 4 after count 16

ENDING: You can choose to finish the dance on wall 7 at count 16… it’s a nice ending facing the front.

However, this is just a pause and the music restarts again after 12 counts. You have the option of continuing the dance from count 17 at that point.  I’ve chosen a continuation rather than a restart because it feels better  and it finishes nicely at count 48.

To tell you the truth,  I like the continuation because it makes the dance longer and more interesting ……..and at my time of life, anything with that combination of words is worth going for!  Know what I mean  (-:

 

I’ve never heard this combination of voices before, The Bellamy Brothers and Willy Nelson!  Awesome!

   See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
