Song Description

A Southern Belle who loves to dance has different partners with different dance styles; she marries John and they dance with the radio on and disco; she grows old and dreams that she is back at the Cotillion.

Story Behind the Song

The lyric has a Charleston rhyme scheme which recalls my mother who refused to give up even when she was nearly 100. The song honors her.

    - Patrick E. Muth/Catnip Pat

I love story songs and this one is a good one. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Honey, the song kept my attention and it was sweet and a really lovely listen. Thanks.

HONEY COME DANCE WITH ME
? Chapman Botond

In Louisville old folks still tell
about a pretty country belle
who had a glow that caught the beaus
made them feel like Romeos
Ah, peaches and cream, she was the dream
of men from Butte to New Orleans
as spirit bright, full of fight
she waltzed and two-stepped every night -- calling

Honey come dance with me dance with me hon
We've got time for one more dance
and let's have a laugh or two
sure is fun being with you
Ah honey come dance with me dance with me hon

She learned to swing, sang along with Bing
a new man said she was the prettiest thing
She married John, worked at the salon
evenings they'd rock with the radio on
Some years were rough, but there was love enough
They discoed even when times got tough
Fire and grit, she wouldn't quit
when her hair grew white and she wasn't so quick -- calling

Honey come dance with me dance with me hon
We've got time for one more dance
and let's have a laugh or two
sure is fun being with you
Ah honey come dance with me dance with me hon

She's in pain now, needs a cane
Holds her head high just the same
Her husband's gone -- was his name John?
Now she drifts back to the Grand Cotillion - calling

Honey come dance with me dance with me hon
We've got time for one more dance
and let's have a laugh or two
sure is fun being with you
Ah honey come dance with me dance with me hon
