It's a waltz to the rodeo
         Asus2 (2)
The damn thing it rides him

It's a waltz to a waltz

               E (2)
Now the waltzing fool
       Asus2 (2)
He just might be crazy
                     E (2)
Because the waltzing fool
                      B7sus4 (2)
He keeps the moon in his car
                E (2)
And the waltzing fool
Asus2 (2)
He says it's running
        E               B7sus4    Asus2   E
On waltzes and waltzes

Repeat Intro

It's a waltz to a waltz, just a waltz to a waltz.

               E (2)
Now the waltzing fool

          Asus2 (2)
They say he's been drinking

              E (2)
But the waltzing fool
                      B7sus4 (2)

He's just got mud on his shoes

                E (2)
And the waltzing fool

       Asus2 (2)
He knows they're all thinking

        E         B7sus4        Asus2   E
He's only an old waltzing fool

                E (2)
But the waltzing fool
             Asus2 (2)
He's got lights in his fingers

         E (2)
The waltzing fool
                     B7sus4 (2)
He just don't never say
        E (2)
The waltzing fool
                      Asus2 (2)
He keeps his hands in his pockets
         E               B7sus4    Asus2   E
And waltzes the evening away

        E (2)
The waltzing fool
        Asus2 (2)
His hands in his pockets
         E               B7sus4    Asus2   E (hold)
And waltzes the evening away
