RESTART: Start wall 3 facing 6:00. Dance to count 24 and restart the dance facing 12:00. Touch together instead of scuffing across.

TAG: Start wall 7 facing 9:00. Dance to count 32 and add the following:
(note: there is no ‘strong beat’ during this section, therefore; the lyrics are included below)
Cross L over R (shot), step R back (gun), step L to L side as you raise right index finger from down to up above head (onnnneeeee). Hold and restart the dance from the beginning on the lyrics “stopping”.

ENDING: Dance up to count 38 at 12:00 (L cross, recover, side, recover, cross, recover) and step L to L side.
