Theres one line that just makes me break down everytime I hear it...the end line to the chorus. The song talks about dancing on dad's toes as a little kid, then him spinning you around in the air. The end of the chorus goes... "How I'd love, love, love..to dance with my father again."
I'm sitting here bawling just thinking of it in my head. Great.
My father passed in 1996 so my dance with be with my mom. It will be kind of funny because I am taller than her. We are thinking of Bob Dylans forever young. The lyrics remind me of what your parents would wish for you. Don't shoot me but I am not a huge Dylan fan! I know he is from MN and I should love him but his voice grates on me. I will work through it for this beautiful song. Also not a Rod Stewart fan so we must stick with the Dylan version.
