MIKE SHORT JR: CRANK IT UP

SLOW DANCIN' WITH A MEMORY

(MIKE SHORT JR)
2011
M. Short Jr/ M. Short Sr/ A. Helms/ M. Conklin

Verse 1 They know his face in this old bar, old cowboy clingin’ to his beer

He waits for that same slow song, chokin’ back the heartbreak and the tears

Goes back to that first dance and back to her blue eyes And he’s prayin’ that the next beer’ll get him by

 

Chorus 1

Now he’s hurting so bad wishin’ she was here

Slow dancing with his memories and tears

Thinking bout the love that was in her eyes, makes him wanna cry

First shot of whiskey and back to the dance, into the arms of an old romance

Every Friday night beneath these neon lights

He’s slow dancing with a memory

 

Verse 2

All alone in a corner booth her memory comes in loud and clear

Like an old time movie in black and white the pictures fade but don’t disappear

 

Chorus 2

Now he’s hurting so bad wishin’ she was here

Slow dancing with his memories and tears

Thinking bout the love that was in her eyes, makes him wanna cry

Third shot of whiskey and back to the dance, into the arms of an old romance

Every Friday night beneath these neon lights

 

Bridge

He goes to see her every Sunday, sits down by her side

She knows his face but not his name but his heart still feels the same

There’s a sparkle in her eyes and memories that just don’t lie,

He’s gonna love her til the day he dies

 

Chorus 3

Now he’s hurting so bad wishin’ she was here

Slow dancing with his memories and tears

Thinking bout the love that was in her eyes, makes him wanna cry

Last shot of whiskey and back to the dance, into the arms of an old romance

Every Friday night beneath these neon lights

He’s slow dancing with a memory
