Intro: 28 Counts
Sequence: A, A, A, +, B, B, A, A, A, +, B, B, A- (Restart/Tag), B, B

Notes: A is danced facing front and back walls. You will dance 3 A, and then need to dance “+” which is 8 counts to turn you back to the front wall. B is only danced facing the front and you will always dance B twice in a row. The last time you dance A you only dance 24 counts of it and then add a 4 count tag which brings you back to the front wall to dance B two more times.

Thank you Daren ,,,,Here's the deal.. tonight I am going to attempt to teach Yours and Amy's LOVE YOU MORE and then SWEET CAROLINE to newcomers that I have never met before in an area where most people are convinced that Line Dancing is old hat and boring.. Yes I have done my Market Research.. Its a huge theatre I have 10 mins to set up and 1 hr to convince newcomers that LINE DANCING is Aaaa mazing . A lot is riding on these 2 dances Wish me Luck Vicky xx

Thanks for such a well-constructed dance for this song. Neil has always been one of my very fav's. And, now that he has just announced that he won't be touring any longer because he has Parkinson's, this song and your dance are even more special to me. Thanks for all your hard work from my class and me!!!

Isn't it great to be able to dance and sing at the same time! I haven't taught a phrased danced for a while. Everyone gave it the thumbs up. A's, B's and Tags ..... the music will tell you. Thank you Darren.
