This is a real country song ‘cause Joni Harms only sings country songs. She’s true blue

country  through and through…. no cross overs for her  -  I like that!  She wrote the song too,

which shows the talent that this lady has  ..  AND she’s easy on the eye . How lucky can you get???


Hope you enjoy the waltz, it’s not tooo hard, but it’s definitely not toooo easy either.

See you on the floor sometime……  Jan
