mom-son wedding dance

  1. I need a country song to dance with my son at his wedding 6 days from today! I'm stumped, I've put it off, got the DJ's suggestions, but no thanks, I don't care for the Backstreet Boys or Barry Manilow.
    Anyone out there have any suggestions?
    Thanks for any help in advance....

    How about "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack

    My brother-in-law and his mom danced to this when he got married. I thought it was a completely apropos message to give your child and really touching.

    I Hope You Dance" (Lee Ann Womack)


    I hope you never lose your sense of wonder.
    You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger.
    May you never take one single breath for granted.
    God forbid love ever leave you empty handed.
    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean.
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens.
    Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance.
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    I hope you dance-hope you dance (CHORUS)

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance.
    Never settle for the path of least resistance.
    Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'.
    Lovin'might be a mistake but it's worth makin'.
    Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter.
    When you come close to sellin'out, reconsider.
    Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance.
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    (CHORUS) Including harmony with the following backing vocals...
    (Time is a wheel in constant motion always [CHORUS] rolling us along.)

    (CHORUS) Including harmony with the following backing vocals)
    (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, [CHORUS] where those
    years
    have gone.)

    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean.
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens.
    Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance.
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    (slight pause) Dance
    I hope you dance.

    I hope you armony with backing vocals.](Time is a wheel in constant motion
    always rolling us along.) dance.
    I hope you dance.

    (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, where those years
    have gone.)
    I hope you dance-hope you dance. [backing vocals at the same [CHORUS]

    instrumental then song ends

    I think "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack is a beautiful song. Every time I hear it, it makes me think of my little boy. I think it's a good idea as a mother/son dance song.

    It`s not country but Boyz to Men`s "A Song for Mama" is really good

    You taught me everything
    And everything you've given me
    I always keep it inside
    You're the driving force in my life, yeah
    There isn't anything
    Or anyone I can be
    And it just wouldn't feel right
    If I didn't have you by my side
    You were there for me to love and care for me
    When skies were grey
    Whenever I was down
    You were always there to comfort me
    And no one else can be what you have been to me
    You'll always be you always will be the girl
    In my life for all times

    Chorus:
    Mama, mama you know I love you
    Oh you know I love you
    Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
    Your love is like
    Tears from the stars
    Mama, I just want you to know
    Lovin' you is like food to my soul
    You're always down for me
    Have always been around for me even when I was bad
    You showed me right from my wrong
    Yes you did
    And you took up for me
    When everyone was downin' me
    You always did understand
    You gave me strength to go on
    There was so many times
    Looking back when I was so afraid
    And then you come to me
    And say to me I can face anything
    And no one else can do
    What you have done for me
    You'll always be
    You will always be the girl in my life
    Chorus

    I know this is slightly off subject but I have saved the CD of butterfly kisses( in the hope chest ) for the marriage of my four girls. I hope this is the song they dance with their dad too.

    I agree with "I Hope You Dance". I think it is extremely fitting and sure to bring out the tears.
