The Lady Is Dancing With Me

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Powder River (1989).

I was waltzin' with my darlin' at the cattleman's ball
Lost in the music and her charms
I was glidin' around the dancefloor, she felt so good in my arms
When a tall dark stranger walked up, and cut in
He said, "Excuse me sir, why don't you go have a seat"
I said, "Now listen' here pardner, this may sound kinda crude
But the lady is dancin' with me"

"I paid for the supper, an' I bought the drinks
So I feel that I've got the right
Now I'm sorry ole buddy, but you just better back off
Or there's liable to be trouble here t'night
Now I can see that you're upset, 'cause it's always been a tradition
To let a fine young gentleman cut in
But if you don't take your hands off my lady, pardner
I'm gonna have to break your chin"

"I've seen your kind before and I know
Exactly what's on your mind
Your woman probably left you for somebody else
So you thought you'd just take a run at mine
Yeah, you though you'd be leavin' her later on
That's right, it's all part of the game
Why don't you take my advice and on go back to the bar
In one piece, the same way you came"

Well, the stranger took off and I saw him tryin' with somebody else
And my lady, well, she scowled at me
And she said, "You know, I think that was very uncouth
And goes against all the rules of chivalry"
Then she smiled up at me with those beautiful eyes
And said, "You know mister, I kinda like your style
But do you think we oughta call up the sitter and maybe check on the kids?"
I just grined and said, "Naw, let's just dance for a while"
