A venture into Americana

lyrics

The candle for a humid Midwest evening
Slips below the corn
Tiny flashes greet us from the shadows
And tunes come from the barn

Remember?

Dance with the one I love
Laugh with the one I want
Shine shine shine when her shadow comes around
Every time I stand my ground she calls me crazy

The party slowly eases in whispers
We look up and stare
Amazing how a kid from Auglaize County
Once went way up there

The edges of these memories are faded
Not quite gone away
No one says we're guaranteed tomorrow
Only yesterday

Remember?

Dance with the one I love
Laugh with the one I want
Shine shine shine when her shadow comes around
Every time I stand my ground she calls me crazy

Remember? Remember?

Dance with the one I love
Laugh with the one I want
Shine shine shine when her shadow comes around
Every time I stand my ground she calls me crazy
