 Don't let the phrasing scare you! It is easy to hear the parts in the song and Parts A & B are 32 counts each so if you happen to miss one it's ok. A. T. & I had fun putting this together, and we hope you have fun with it as well.

RIGHT & LEFT KNEE ROLLS, HEEL TOUCHES SIDE & ACROSS WITH SWIVELS
1-2Step right to right side as you roll right knee to right
The foot action will be a ball, flat motion as you roll the knee out to the right. You may also lead with the right hip, like a jazz walk in place.
3-4Step left to left side (slightly) as you roll left knee to left
Same styling as above
 
5-6Touch right heel to right side & slightly forward, touch right heel in front of left
7-8Touch right heel to right side & slightly forward, touch right heel in front of left
As you do these touches with the right heel, you should swivel on the ball of the left foot and will travel slightly to the right (very similar to the move called a "Dwight Yoakam"). The left heel will twist to the left as you touch the right heel to the right. The left heel will twist to the right as you touch the right heel in front of the left, etc.

SIDE, TOUCH, TURN, HITCH
1-2Step right to right side as you square off to center, touch left toe to left side
3-4Shift weight to left foot & turn ¼ to right, hitch right knee
On the "hitch", you will bring the right foot next to the left leg just below the knee (passé position)

CROSSING SHUFFLE TURNING ¼ RIGHT, STEP FORWARD, SLIDE TOGETHER
5&6Right shuffle forward turning ¼ to right (6:00) (right, left, right)
This can also be danced as a "paddle turn" as "cross, ball, change"
7-8Step left forward, slide right up to left foot

PART B - 32 counts
RIGHT & LEFT VAUDEVILLES (HEEL JACKS)

&1&2Step left diagonally back, touch right heel to right side, step right to center, cross step left over right
&3&4Step right diagonally back, touch left heel to left side, step left to center, cross step right over left
&5&6Repeat left Vaudeville (counts &1&2)
&7&8Repeat right Vaudeville, except touch right next to left on count 8

3&4Step left back, step right next to left, step left forward

ROLLING 360 TO RIGHT (3 COUNT TURN), RIGHT SIDE SHUFFLE
5-6Turn ¼ right & step right forward, turn ½ right & step left back

&1-2Step left next to right, step right to right side (large step), hold

5-6-7-8Slowly unwind ¾ to right, transferring weight to right foot

PART C - 16 counts
HOLD, CROSS HEEL ROCK, BACK ROCK, SAILOR SHUFFLE

1&2Hold, cross rock left over right with heel, step right in place (body angles right)
&3Rock step left diagonally back, step right in place (body still angled right)
4&5Cross step left behind right, step right to right side slightly, step left to left side and angle body to left corner
In other words, at the beginning of this section you are rocking toward the corner to your right, then turning on the sailor shuffle to face the corner to your left
&6&7Cross rock right over left with right heel, step left in place with body angled left, rock step right diagonally back, step left in place
8&1Cross step right behind left, step left to left side slightly, step right to right side
Again, this is a sailor shuffle that will turn slightly to the right so you will now be aligned with the corner to your right.

SYNCOPATED CHASSE' (SIDE STEPS) TO RIGHT, RIGHT PADDLE TURN TURNING ONE FULL REVOLUTION
2&3Hold, step left next to right, step right to right side (toe turned out)
4&Hold, step left next to right
5&Step right to right side toe turned out, rock left back with ball of foot
6&7&Repeat 5& two more times
8Step right to right side toe turned out
This is a paddle turn where one foot stays stationary and the other foot helps propel you around. Think of it as "step, rock, step, rock, step, rock, step" turning a little bit each time until you have turned all the way around in one spot to face the same wall you started on.
