Entry: Slow Dance More -- Kenny Rogers Wednesday, September 17, 2008



Grady Johnson was a common man
Four children and some bottom land
Early to bed, he said, that ain't me
Gotta spend some time with my family
Left to its own device, May becomes June
And children grow up way too soon

So love your neighbor as yourself
Don't use money to measure wealth
Trust in God, but lock your door
Buy low, sell high
And slow dance more

Mamy Johnson was Grady's wife
She bore his children and she graced his life
Hand in hand, side by side
They were taught to simplify
Some folks have, some have not
What matters most is what you do with what you've got

So love your neighbor as yourself
Don't use money to measure wealth
Trust in God, but lock your door
Buy low, sell high
And slow dance more
And more

I think I understand what my father's father meant
When he said
Son what matters most you can count on just one hand

So love your neighbor as yourself
Don't use money to measure wealth
Trust in God, but lock your door
Buy low, sell high
And slow dance more

Buy low, sell high
And slow dance more
