Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: Slow Country Dance
Lyrics for Album: State of the Heart [1989]



Out on the floor the couples are swaying

To "One Faded Love" on the jukebox tonight

You slide in your coins and the music keeps playing

A slow country dance on a Saturday night



Sweethearts in love and others just lonely

Searching for someone to waltz with tonight

In a smoky old bar you know that it's only

A slow country dance on a Saturday night



And love's never easy or ever as true

When the changing of partners is no longer new

You lead with your heart, and closing your eyes

Dance just to dance in three-quarter time



Down at the bar a woman tells stories

Batting her eyes to someone not there

Her glass is half full or maybe half empty

Like the jokes told about her when they think she can't hear



Now the perfume is cheap and the makeup is careless

And the dress out of fashion for a woman her age

But she don't give a damn for those who would cherish

A much lighter step and a much younger face



And love's never easy or ever as true

When the changing of partners is no longer new

You lead with your heart, and closing your eyes

Dance just to dance in three-quarter time



Out on the floor the couples are swaying

To "One Faded Love" on the jukebox tonight
