OLD COUNTRY ROCK
(Dave Travis)
DAVE TRAVIS with THE BAD RIVER BAND
(SILVER DOLLAR, 1980)

There's a high steppin' baby now in every town
Dancin' to the music with the old time sound
Rockin' and a-hoppin' to a lonesome beat
And now my baby's in bed with the aching feet
When they're dancin' on a honky tonk hardwood floor
You can hear the feet a-stompin' for a mile or more
Everybody shakin' like the leaves on a tree
You can't sit still, honey bop with me
Old country rock is back in town

I'm a hog for you baby and it's plain to see
That I'm all shook up when you're dancin' with me
You gotta keep swayin' like a willow tree
One the right, on the left, and the back and the front of me

I remember the time you were nice and sweet
That rock 'n' roll music swept you off of your feet
You went around town, just a-boppin' the blues
Drove everybody crazy in your baby doll shoes
You even said, honey I'd like you to know
If you're rockin' with me, don't you rock too slow
I feel glad all over when you're by my side
Free time dancin' with a Harlem Stride
Old country rock is back in town

I'm a hog for you baby and it's plain to see
That I'm all shook up when you're dancin' with me
You gotta keep a-swayin' like a willow tree
One the right, on the left, and the back and the front of me

I remember the time you were nice and sweet
That rock 'n' roll music swept you off of your feet
You went around town, just a-boppin' the blues
Drove everybody crazy in your baby doll shoes
You even said, honey I'd like you to know
If you're rockin' with me, don't you rock too slow
I feel be glad all over when you're by my side
Free time dancin' with a Harlem Stride
Old country rock is back in town
Old country rock is back in town
Old country rock is back in town

Also recorded by Eddie Bond (with Dave Travis Band), 1982
