**2nd RESTART: Start last wall (7) at 6:00. After first 3 counts, hold with weight on L & slowly drag R foot in to match pause in song, then restart dance from beginning.

Option for counts 2&3 in section 3: Do a “R sailor step” instead of the “Rock-recover-slide”.
Option for counts 2-7 in section 2: Follow the L foot forward sweep (count 1) with a rocking chair for counts (2&3&4)
Replace the counts that follow (5&6&) with a “rock-recover, back, back, back” instead of “rock-recover, cross, back, cross”. Changes (‘in blue’) would look like this.

1Make a ¼ turn R stepping R forward & simultaneously sweep L foot forward
2&3&‘Cross-rock L over R (2) 7:30 Recover to R (&), Rock L diag back (3), Recover to R (&)’
4‘Step L forward’
5&6&‘Rock R forward (5), Recover back on L (&), Walk back R (6), Walk back L (&)’
7Step R behind L & sweep L back 3/8 turn to face 3:00 wall
