I was thrilled to obtain this piece of music while I was in N.Z. for the Beat
Awards in March 2002. It is sung by a local New Zealander from the Waikato area and apparently it is an unknown song . Talk about good old fashioned country music, this song has got the lot..... and I believe that it deserves to be danced to.
The dance came easy to us, and it seems to flow well, but we'll let you be the judge of that. Hope you enjoy it anyhow and I bet that you will sing along to the chorus once you have mastered the dance.... WE do!!
Leaving the last 3 counts off walls 3,5&6 is not hard, so don't let it bother you.
See you on the floor soon....... Jan
