I love the primitive feeling of this song.  It takes me back to days of long ago and

Saturday arvo at the flicks, as we used to call it back then.  Every Cowboy and  Indian movie I ever saw evoked the same feeling of sadness in me that this song does. 

What it is I can’t explain, but I hope there is someone out there

who know what I am talking about.!  (-:

 

The dance is easy, by choice, but it is not a dance for new beginners.

I hope you enjoy the feeling of dancing to this lovely song.

 

                                                       See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
