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
© 2004 Bryan Masters 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 Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
