B2(8) Right and left through
(8) Promenade across, advancing counter-clockwise along the set one place during the courtesy turn

Author's Notes:
As an alternative, start the dance with B2 in order to end with a partner swing.
Although the dance works well with any tune, I like to call the alternative to the Beatles' "When I'm 64." Once through the dance for the verse, and once through for the chorus. Depending upon how the band plays it, the dancers could get an extra long swing at each chorus' end.
Teach the second part of B2 as "promenade across and after the courtesy turn shift right of face new neighbors," and once the dance starts, prompt it as "promenade and loop".
