Dance Little Jean

Song Author Jimmy Ibbotson Performer: John Denver Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Played a wedding for the money
And I wish I could have told the bride and [C]groom
Just what [D7]I think of marriage
What's in store after the honey[G]moon


I was rumbling through the verses
About how men and women ought to live [C]apart
How a [D7]promise never made could not be broken
And would never break a [G]heart


Suddenly from out of nowhere
This little girl came spinning across the [C]floor
Her [D7]crinolines were billowing
Beneath the skirt of calico she [G]wore


As her joy fell on the honored guests
Each one of them was drawn into her [C]dream
And they [D7]laughed and stamped and clapped their hands
And hollered at her dance little [G]Jean

They said [C]dance little Jean this day is for [G]you  
Two people that you love [A7]stood up to say I [D7]do   
[C]Dance little Jean the prayer that you [G]had was answered [C]today
Your [D7]Momma's marrying your [G]dad  


Well this cynic's heart just melted
As I figured what this get together [C]meant
And how it [D7]ended years of tears
And sad confusions that the little girl had [G]spent


They told the band to pack it up
About the time the couple cut the [C]cake
But we [D7]stayed and we played all night long
For love and laughs and little Jeanie's [G]sake

We played [C]dance little Jean this day is for [G]you  
Two people that you love [A7]stood up to say I [D7]do   
[C]Dance little Jean the prayer that you [G]had was answered [C]today
Your [D7]Momma's marrying your [G]dad  

We sang [C]dance little Jean this day is for [G]you  
Two people that you love [A7]stood up to say I [D7]do   
[C]Dance little Jean the prayer that you [G]had was answered [C]today
Your [D7]momma's marrying your [G]dad  


Played a wedding for the money
And I wish I could have told the bride and groom
Just what I think of marriage
What's in store after the honeymoon

I was rumbling through the verses
About 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

They said dance little Jean this day is for you
Two people that you love stood up to say I do
Dance little Jean the prayer that you had was answered today
Your Momma's marrying your dad

Well this cynic's heart just melted
As I figured what this get together meant
And how it ended years of tears
And sad confusions that the little girl had spent

They told the band to pack it up
About the time the couple cut the cake
But we stayed and we played all night long
For love and laughs and little Jeanie's sake

We played dance little Jean this day is for you
Two people that you love stood up to say I do
Dance little Jean the prayer that you had was answered today
Your Momma's marrying your dad

We sang dance little Jean this day is for you
Two people that you love stood up to say I do
Dance little Jean the prayer that you had was answered today
Your momma's marrying your dad
