George Walker invented the figure "yearn"; it is so called because you approach dancers (your first new neighbors) with whom you do not dance.
Collected from Mary Devlin January, 1997. Mary collected it from George at the Tractor Tavern on a Monday night in October, 1994 when he was calling at the open mike dance.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
