lyrics

Last night in Austin Texas, as I walked into the Continental Club
Didn’t know yet I’d have my pick of dancing partners, I’d be shaking it down

I was a lone star drinking the place dry
Looking out for the talent
But every guy had a girl and girl had a guy
Folks that knew this town many more years than I

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

I spotted a man tall and handsome
He wore a hat large and proud, I asked the cowboy to dance and he obliged
Listen to the music and before long we were
Stepping in time

That cowboy from Missouri had me on the dance floor
but this music was made to share

I took turn with a gentle old man
He knew how to dance he weren’t bending my hand
Said he was too old to polka
His friend held out his hand and took over
My eyes still on that cattle man in the crowd

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

Young Jason from Colorado took a chance with me
But I palmed him off on an silver lady
She said don’t look at your feet, just relax
He was a road trippin but it weren’t a new Cadillac

That cowboy from Missouri had me on the dance floor
but this music was made to share

One filthy man I regret to say
was grabbing me in places all the wrong way
Told me to loosen up and dance like a pornstar
I pulled him aside and told him that’s not what I was after
He weren’t a Texan man that explained it

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

I returned to the arms of that cattleman
He held me close
It felt like we were sharing a romance
I was sad when he left without saying goodbye
I wanted to do more than dance with that guy

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll shake without a care
