I fell in love with this song the minute I heard it.

The little hall they are singing about is in the same area I came from,

up on the Darling Downs in Queensland, Australia.

Brendon Walmsley is an Aussie Country singer and he has done a

wonderful job of this song.  The lyrics are hair raising!

Hope you think so too.


The dance may be a bit harder than I usually write, but

It is so nice to dance to this song that it is worth learning.


  See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
