"Midnight on the Water" as written by and Benny Thomasson....
[Chorus]
Play me a fiddle tune, sing me a song
Banish misfortune, my time is not long
Midnight on the water so steady and slow
Stay up till the morning, one more for the road
Midnight on the water, so steady and slow.
Let's have another drink and set em up Joe

I never thought much of that fancy dancing
With my two left feet and my rovin' eye
But when the band plays so slowly in 3/4 time
I could dance with my darling until morning comes

Well, I've done all my dancing down in those barrooms
Dancing and drinking go hand in glove
So give a beer to the fiddler, play all the old tunes
So I can dance closer to the one that I love

Midnight on the water so steady and slow
Lets have another drink and set em up Joe
