NOTE: After each pause, the dance begins again on the word "once" with Right heel forward.
This would be an easy/beginner line dance with the part A step pattern, but the sequence
(pauses and tag) bring it closer to an intermediate dance.

This dance was first taught August 27, 2005, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama,
at the Alabama Square and Round Dance Association (ASARDA) state convention.
