GOD BLESSED TEXAS CopperKnob - Linedance Stepsheets

Count: 32Wall: 2Level: Beginner

Choreographer: Shirley K. Batson

Music: God Blessed Texas by Little Texas

 The choreographer specifies that the introduction of the dance starts after you hear one phrase of The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You and then only after waiting another 16 counts. While waiting to start dancing the introduction, you need to ignore a few grace notes and only count the main beat. Regardless of the length of the various recorded introductions, the main dance must start with the vocals.

On each pair of counts (1-2, then 3-4, etc.), raise both heels off the floor, bending at the knees, and then return heels to the starting position
