VERSE 1:
G            D           G    G7
They were playing that old country waltz
C         E               Am
in this empty bar echoing off the wall.
C             Em7           D           C
When I first got the bad news that you set me free
G               D           C    G/B  Am7    G
the band played the old country waltz     to me.

VERSE 2:
Well, I loved and I lost and I cried
the day the two of us died.
Ain't got no excuses I just want to ride
while the band plays the old country waltz.

SOLO (over VERSE chords)

C                             G            G7
Out the window the moon shines on the roofs of the cars
C                   G      D
while I knocked tequila and salt  ooh.
G              D           C     G/B Am7 G
And the band plays the old country waltz.

VERSE 3:
And we're playing it, that old country waltz
in this empty bar echoing off the wall.
Ain't got no excuses we just want to play
that good old country waltz.

C         Em7    D            C
I ain't got no excuses I just want to play
G        D         C     G/B Am7  G
that good old country waltz.

G       D        Em     C       G
That good old country waltz.
