Riff: Tim McGraw – “Annie I Owe You A Dance”

Feb 4, 2013

Put your groceries in the basket/I’m so sorry now I’m asking like I should have 20 years ago

from Annie I Owe You A Dance lyrics by Tim McGraw

Bumping into the homecoming date he stood up 20 years ago, this shimmering ballad allows McGraw the opportunity to make amends. Despite the supermarket location & the fact she has her daughter in tow, his wounded ex bizarrely can’t resist his less-than-romantic offer of a slow-dance in Aisle 13.
