            E (2)
    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

    / Asus2 - - / E - - /

                   E (2)
    And it's a waltz to a woman
               Asus2 (2)
    Who's lying beside him
               E (2)
    It's a waltz to her face on the
    B7sus4 (2)
    Wall when she's gone
              E (2)
    It's a waltz to the rodeo
             Asus2 (2)
    The damn thing it rides him
     
               E             B7sus4    Asus2   E

    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


                     B
    And it's a waltz to a woman
              A          E
    Who's lying beside him
              B
    It's a waltz to a face on the

      A                      E

    wall when she's gone
              B
    It's a waltz to the rodeo
              A                E
    The damn thing it rides him
               E             B7sus4      Asus2       E
    It's a waltz to a waltz, just a waltz to a waltz.

    / E - - / B7sus4 - - / Asus2 - - / E - - /

     

                   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
