    This is fabulous! I just happened to come across your blog in a google search (nothing to do with Deep in the Heart of Texas) and I’m now hooked. I had been completely avoiding this song unless it was specifically asked for by a resident because the claps got so messy, but this will definitely help! Thanks for sharing!!
