I'm not much of a dancer.
My wife always gives me "that look"...

Oh well...


just because i've got two left feet
doesn't mean that i can't dance
i may be a simple man
doesn't mean i don't feel romance
fred astaire and arthur murray
ain't got nothing on me
when i dance the dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

i don't know the cotton-eyed joe
two steps are too many for me
it's all i can do to walk the line
so dancing one ain't meant to be
i don't need to spin, slap my boots and slide
or count to four while watching my feet
when i dance the dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

we'll just stand in one place, hold each other tight
while the world goes waltzing by
sway to and fro while the stars do-si-do
and the moon does an allemande right
it's all just one big dance, you and me in the middle
love's the only music we need
when i dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

just because i've got two left feet
doesn't mean that we can't dance...

Man, you are at it AGAIN!!
Another superb country ballad.
As I am one of those guys who just cannot dance - my kids call it "Dad Dancing" and you can guess what it looks like - this is going to be my anthem to Val.
A great production and there you go again slipping in those nice m7b5 chords just when I least expect it.
Wonderful stuff, Floyd.
Thank you

Floyd, another keeper, my friend!

You definitely are a talented wordsmith. Thanks for posting this work. We all learn by your excellent example.

If you're anything like me, you were too busy making the music for other people to dance to to learn how myself. (That's my story and I'm sticking with it).

Floyd, This is what you call smart country. Great lyrics that tell the story and make you think at the same time. I liked the observations on line dancing. I've always watched from the perspective of the bandstand and thought there was something very odd about that craze. Like Ian that one chord f#m made me sit up a little straighter and listen a little harder. Brilliant change. The only thing I didn't like was it ended too soon. That may be because I liked it so much. Another super job.

Every time I think you can't get any better, you up and do this. Great work, love the back ground strings, so well mastered, and as always the vocal is outstanding! Thanks for sharing!

Cool tune. I like the chord you use in the 6th line in the verse. Most folks would not have considered that. Nice choice.

And yeah...BTW, I don't dance either. Not in any semblance of normality.

two left feet ? .....(chuckle)!
Well, honestly, this is one of your
best without doubt ! I just love

Really nice work, as usual Floyd!! Someone else pointed out an unconventional chord change. Definitely caught my attention but worked very well musically. Beautiful concept, beautifully delivered!! Take care. Greg
