about

I have been singing this song since about 1986 when John Prine released it on his album "German Afternoons." Some Johnny-come-lately named George Strait made it a number one country hit in 1998.

I wanted my version to have the evocative sound of the Tex-Mex style accordion, and the multi-talented Rory Hoffman, a great Nashville session player, obliged ...

lyrics

I JUST WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
© Roger Cook and John Prine

I don't want to be the kind to hesitate
Be too shy, wait too late
I don't care what they say other lovers do
I just want to dance with you

I got a feeling that you have a heart like mine
So let it show, let it shine
If we have a chance to make one heart of two
I just want to dance with you

I want to dance with you
Twirl you all around the floor
That's what they intended dancing for
I just want to dance with you
I want to dance with you
Hold you in my arms once more
That's what they invented dancin' for
I just want to dance with you

I caught you lookin' at me when I looked at you
Yes I did, ain't that true
You won't get embarrassed by the things I do
I just want to dance with you

Oh the boys are playin' softly and the girls are too,
So am I and so are you
If this was a movie we'd be right on cue
I just want to dance with you.

I want to dance with you
Twirl you all around the floor
That's what they invented dancin' for
I just want to dance with you
I want to dance with you
Hold you in my arms once more
That's what they invented dancin' for
I just want to dance with you
