Easier option: Step R forward, step L together, step R forward, hold (facing 12 o’clock)
Please note: If you want to turn the 2nd triple to the left that is also fine either way will work! As we have been teaching the dance it seems different people like to do it different ways and as long as the steps go forward in your line of dance, either way works.

(33-40) ¼ R & L side rock & recover, L cross step, hold (or L toe strut), vine R 4
1-4 Turning ¼ right rock L side, recover weight on R, cross step L over R, hold

1-4 Rock L side, recover weight on R, step L together, hold
5-8 Touch R toes to right side, Turning ½ right step R together, touch L toes to left side, touch L together (facing 3 o’clock)

Easy Ending: Dance finishes facing front wall. The last pattern will start facing front wall. Dance as far as counts 25-28: the full L turning triple & hold (or easier option L forward triple & hold) Either way weight ends on L foot. Add 2 quick hip bumps R & L to hit the final notes of the music & hold

It was very popurlar in 2008, I think it needs a reprise, I am taken it up again in my classes, Linnea Borealis Ryhl, instructor 50/60+ linedance

Considering its a fast 4/4 beat so - (1 2 3 4)(1 2 3 4) is your 16 count/beats. On the sheet it says to start on the word "Raised" which would mean it would fall in the next (1 2 3 4) beats only you would step L on 1 which also falls exactly on the word "Raised".
