Since liturgical dance is all the rage, here's NPA's first hymn selection...

HE CAME TO TOWN LIKE A MIDWEST STORM

HE RODE THROUGH THE FIELDS SO HANDSOME AND STRONG

(watch out once this song is in your head!)

Back when Line Dancing was THE thing we taught a pattern dance to that version.

BTW Cotton Eye Joe was a less than complimentary reference back in the 1800s

Yeah, I've heard various versions of what it meant... everything from promiscuity to STDs. What's the Canadian version?

Hmmm... will also give some thought to Lenten Line Dancing.

From Wikipedia

A list of the possible meanings of the term "cotton eyed" that have been proposed includes: to be drunk on moonshine, or to have been blinded by drinking wood alcohol, turning the eyes milky white; a black person with very light blue eyes; someone whose eyes were milky white from bacterial infections of Trachoma or syphilis, cataracts or glaucoma; and the contrast of dark skin tone around white eyeballs in black people.

And people still go to TitusOneNine and Stand Firm. Do they get such great info there?
