Editor's note: I hate square dancing but this record is great. Especially the dude calling it. When he says doe-SIGH-doe I feel like the guy has reached a higher platform than most of us who say doe-see-doe ever will. Why? Well, the same reason when singers -- for reasons of different accents and because they can -- say words oddly (think Eddie Vedder (roooew reooow eeroo wooo), Robert Plant (just about everything he sang) or Roger Daltrey (saying Exo-deuce for Exodus in Teenage Wastleland). I like it and that's all that matters you cow-pokers.

Thank you SO much for posting this - I learned to square dance to this very record in gym class and it was such a treat to hear it again :)
