26 count Partner Dance (see note)
Danced in Side by Side Promenade position (lady on the right)
Choreographer: Unknown
Music: T-R-O-U-B-L-E by Travis Tritt (184 BPM)
        Squeeze Me In by Lee Roy Parnell (BPM)
        Dumas Walker by Kentucky Headhunters (144 BPM)
        (Or any good upbeat 4/4 timed music)
Step sheet prepared by: Debra Cleckler (770-456-6244 – debra@cleckler.com)
Notes: (This dance is easier broken down by four counts instead of the usual eight)
This dance was choreographed with 26 counts, before our dancing ancestors were educated about
“phrasing”. It has always been a favorite in Tennessee and if you go there for dancing you have to know
this dance!
Think one, two, three, scuff all through the dance! (Scuff is done with the heel)
