slow dancing with a memory lyrics – darryl worley

he walked into dusty’s place last night
i said something about that boy ain’t right
he drank a half a dozen double shots
walked to the dancefloor and picked his spot

[chorus]
then he closed his eyes and dropped his head
folded his arms across his chest
slowly started swaying side to side

that’s when i walked up and said are you okay
he had big old tears running down his face
he said not right now buddy can’t you see
i’m slow dancing with a memory

i just waited until the song was through
i asked if there was something i could do
he said not unless you can bring her home
then ‘he stopped loving her today’ came on

[chorus]
then he closed his eyes and dropped his head
folded his arms across his chest
slowly started swaying side to side

i walked back to the bar and old dusty said
we oughta throw that fool out on his head
i said why don’t you let that poor man be
he’s slow dancing with a memory

i hate to see somebody down that low
but that’s the wau life is and the way love goes
someday that just mights be you or me
slow dancing with a memory
slow dancing with a memory
