I thought I had heard most 'older' country songs, but this one seems to have
slipped past me.  It's nice and I found it on an old cd a few days after the terrorist attack on  the U.S.A. It occured to me then that we will probably never wear 'Rose Coloured Glasses' again. When I hear it said that the world has changed forever it really drives home to me that until now we have all had a certain degree of naivity about the true situation of our world. We've all been wearing Rose Coloured Glasses to some extent, but the unbelievable events of the past
week have blown those glasses off all of us and we can no longer remain isolated from, and ignorant of, world events ..... but I think I'll keep MY Rose Coloured glasses on and just keep on dancing until it is no longer possible.
As they say, 'May The Force Be With You'. 
Maybe see you on the floor sometime.....  Jan
