I love this music.  Ian  Tyson is good honest country music at it's best - and
the production is superb!  Although this dance has an element of difficulty,
being a single wall dance takes a lot of the sting out of itů.. So YOU will
manage it I am sure.  It has no tags or restarts and the steps are all
very achievable .    If you have trouble with it, just persevere, because  it
feels lovely to do  and you will enjoy it when you get it.
      See you on the floor sometime.....  Jan
