From the album Patience & Time

Lyrics

By: Craig Stonesifer and Sol Knopf c 2007

Our favorite song was playing on the jukebox
The one we danced to down the line
We used to groove so close together
But since she’s gone I guess I’ll have to keep time

Chorus
Dancin’ Dancin’ with the bottle
I’m two stepping with her memory tonight
And it’s a lonely dance for a broken hearted man
It’s a lift of the glass that doesn’t take a steady hand
Yeah I’m dancin’ dancin’ with the bottle


Now every man should know
The simple twist of the wrist and the elbow
Because when things get to be the worst
I’ll tell ya Mister you can work up a hell of a thirst

Chorus
So I’m dancin’ dancin’ with the bottle
A slow fandango under a neon light
I’m a winnin’ waltzer who’s tired of this slow dance
I need to call her if I’m gonna stand half a chance
But I can’t stop dancin’ dancin’ with the bottle


After all the times we’ve danced together
I can’t believe we’ll never get the steps right.

Chorus
So I’m dancin’ dancin’ with the bottle
Yeah I’m shufflin’ and my next partners on ice
I’ll be doing the same thing tomorrow
If my call falls on deaf ears tonight
I’ll be dancin’ dancin’ with the bottle.
