Bubbling with Joy: Cincinnati?

Mr. C is not a big dancer, not at all. I, on the other hand, love to dance. I was set on having a first dance—nothing fancy, but I made sure he understood how important it was to me that we have that dance and those memories.

Whenever anyone used to needle Mr. C about when he was going to get on the stick and propose already, he would say, “Just as soon as I get back from Cincinnati.” And when the person would get excited and say, “Oh yeah? When are you going to Cincinnati?!” he would respond, “No plans!” So—when I was going through possible songs for our first dance, I was having a hard time choosing one that seemed right. Mr. C listened to a few of them, thought for a minute, and then suggested a song by Drew Kennedy called, appropriately enough, “Cincinnati.” A beautiful song, with a bit of an inside joke folded in. Perfect.

A riverboat in Cincinnati, we were

Having fun, you smiled at me by the water’s edge

before we went to bed

The city lights along the river made me

Promise things, hope I deliver in another year

was it me or the beer

581-Sch

I don’t know what you do to me

but every once in a while

I guess it’s something that I can’t see

hiding in your smile

California and Mexico

I’ve been to Houston too

Never thought that I would ever fall in love with you

Took a walk along the levee and we

told ourselves we would get ready in a little while

it was only a mile

To the church for the ceremony

I held the door for almost everybody and watched you laugh

behind the camera’s glass

584-Sch

From Colorado I got a call

I guess it snowed again

I don’t know how those two survived at all

but I’m glad that they’re my friends

California and Mexico

I’ve been to Houston too

Never thought that I would ever fall in love with you

588-Sch

Eight hours home on the Interstate

I’m not alone but you can hardly even stay awake

as my headlights shake

I watch you sleep, I watch the road ahead

I watch you dream, I wish that I could lay you down in bed

but we’re not home yet

578-Sch

I don’t know what you do to me

but every once in a while

I guess it’s something that I can’t see

hiding in your smile

California and Mexico

I’ve been to Houston too

Never thought that I would ever fall in love with you

    You guys sounds just like us! You picked a lovely song, and the inside joke makes it really perfect.
