Count:

Choreographer: 
Lorenzo "goLo" Evans
Music: 
Collard Greens and Cornbread by Fantasia, Album: Back To Me
Intro: 16 counts to start with lyrics.

Note: The whole counts (1, 2, 3, 4) are on the heavy downbeat, so it’s easy to hear the “1 & ah 2 & ah 3 & ah 4...”.
It’s choreographed to phrase with the music meaning it’s meant to be danced as the instrumental notes hit rather than beats counted, but here’s a solid effort at breaking it down for you anyway.
Dance it low and grounded and let your body get into the groove! Check out the note at the end of the step sheet for the finish.
The first 32 counts are actually 8 counts done 4 times. You rotate ¼ turn left during each 8 counts to end at your front wall.
[1 – 8] Step, Hook, Swing, Behind-¼-Ball-Coaster-Step, Brush, Hitch, Ball-Step-Heel-Out-In-Heel-Out-Step
1, 2, 3Step forward R; Step/Hook L behind R; Swing R from front to back

[9 – 16] Repeat counts 1-8
[17 – 24] Repeat counts 1-8
[25 – 32] Repeat counts 1-8

3 & 4 &Sway-step R forward to slight right diagonal; Touch L next to R; Sway-step L forward L to slight left diagonal; Touch R next to L
Arms for 1-4 While you sway your body during your steps, also sway both arms naturally side to side, so as you step with your L, you “drum” down and center with your R arm as your L arm swings slightly up and to the side, then swing R arm up as L arm drums down when you step with your R.
5, 6Open body to right diagonal and rock back on R; Return body to front as you recover weight on L
7 & ah 8 & a Run in place R, L, R, L, R, L making a full turn left (ending at front wall)

6, 7, 8Step in place R, L, R
Arms for 6 & 7, 8 In the music, the lyrics have a “woo hoo hoooooo”, which are highlighted over these counts with the arms: R arm/hand goes out to right side on 6 (woo), in towards center on & (hoo), straight up on 7 (hoooooo) as you look at it, and down on 8; while L arm goes in towards center on 6 (woo), slightly out to left side on & (hoo), and straight down on 7-8 (hoooooo).

[65 – 72] Dig L, Step, Dig R, Step, Dig L, Step, Out and Uuuuuup
The same as counts 57-64, but different... the arms are exactly the same, but the feet are opposite (so read the details).
1, 2Bend slightly forward from waist with slight twist to right, with L arm up and bent and R arm back and bent while you bend L knee and touch full L foot in place; Maintain body position and step L foot in place
3, 4Bend slightly forward from waist with slight twist to left, with R arm up and bent and L arm back and bent while you bend R knee and touch full R foot in place; Maintain body position and step R foot in place

6, 7, 8Step in place L, R, L
Arms for 6 & 7, 8 In the music, the lyrics have a “woo hoo hoooooo”, which are highlighted over these counts with the arms: R arm/hand goes out to right side on 6 (woo), in towards center on & (hoo), straight up on 7 (hoooooo) as you look at it, and down on 8; while L arm goes in towards center on 6 (woo), slightly out to left side on & (hoo), and straight down on 7-8 (hoooooo).

Start again from the top of the sequence.

Ending: On the third time through, when you get to the “Dig, Step, WooHooHooooo” section, you’ll do counts 57-64, then turn ¼ left and do counts 65-72, then turn ¼ left and do counts 65-72 again, then ¼ left and do counts 65-72 one last time, ending by slowly walking off the floor to the side wall through the end of the song.

Enjoy, because this should feel as good as soul food tastes... hello, collard greens and cornbread - mmmmmmmm!!
