DANCE LITTLE JEAN (Jimmy Ibbotson) John Denver - 1980 Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - 1982 John McEuen & Jim Ibbotson - 1999 I played a wedding for the money And I wished that I could tell the bride and groom Just what I think of marriage What's in store after the honeymoon I was grumbling to the dancers 'Bout how men and women ought to live apart How a promise never made could not be broken And would never break a heart Suddenly from out of nowhere This little girl came spinning across the floor Her crinolines were billowing Beneath the skirt of calico she wore As her joy fell on the honored guests Each one of them was drawn into her dream And they laughed and stamped and clapped their hands And hollered at her, "Dance little Jean!" Dance, little Jean, this day is for you Two people you love, stood up and said "I do" Dance little Jean, the prayer that you had Was answered today, your Mama's marrying your Dad Well, my cynical heart just melted 'Cause I knew what this get together meant How it ended year of tears and sad confusion That the little girl had spent Well they told the band to pack it up About the time the couple cut the cake But we played as long as they stayed For love and laughs and little Jeanie's sake Dance, little Jean, this day is for you Two people you love, stood up and said "I do" Dance little Jean, the prayer that you had Was answered today, your Mama's marrying your Dad (repeat chorus twice)
