Listen to Ain’t Stopped Dancing Yet

Kenny Cornell would tell you that it’s an Old Love Thing. This is a tribute to all of those couples who are still finding romance in our day-to-day as easily as we find it in our memories.

Winfield cred: This one was a showcase selection for Walnut Valley Festival’s NewSong Showcase, 2011.


Ain’t Stopped Dancing Yet

G   D   G   G7 C   D

         G              D
I was half grown and half smart
     G          G7       C
when I saw you my fool heart stumbled
         D
like a colt on new legs I trembled and watched you
      C                       G   D
and wondered if I’d have a chance
         G             D
as the band played on that stage
      G          G7        C
Said I’d give a week’s pay for the courage
             D
then like a bolt from the blue I asked you
C                     D
‘Would you like to dance?’

C           G
you said I don’t know
      C                         D
then you smiled and you said I guess so

  C                                     G
twin fiddles carried us both round the dance floor
      D
I was high-steppin
                                         G     G7
like a man who thought he knew how to dance
    C
we spun round the room like
                         G
two texas tornadoes in blue jeans
      D
our first dance began on the night that we met
 C                D      G   D   G   G7   C   D
we ain’t stopped dancin’ yet

We danced all night long
you cried at that sad song, I remember
we danced through the spring and summer
and all through the fall
you were so smart and so fine
could you really be mine, I was humbled
then like a bolt from the blue I asked you 
‘Would you be my bride?’

you said I don’t know
you smiled and you said I guess so

twin fiddles carried us both round the dance floor
I was high-steppin
like a man who thought he knew how to dance
we spun round the room like
two texas tornadoes in blue jeans
our first dance began on the night that we met
we ain’t stopped dancin’ yet

                  C
well the years passed so fast
                    G
since that night on the dance floor way back then
      C                                            D
Darlin’ would you do it all again?

(you say) You know it, don’t you doubt it
ain’t no guess so about it

twin fiddles
still carry us both round the dance floor (sometimes)
I’m still high-steppin
like a man who thinks he knows how to dance
Whether we spin round the room
like two Texas tornadoes
Or sit ‘round the house like old two couch potatoes
To me it still feels like the night that we met
We ain’t stopped dancin’ yet
