God Blessed Texas
(a.k.a. Little Texas Stomp)

Choreographed by Shirley K. Batson

Description: 32 count, line dance 
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.
