West Texas Waltz (w/ Kimmie Rhodes)
written by Billy Joe Shaver
Album: "The Real Deal"
2/24/06


INTRO: D  G  A7  D

D                   G
He was a honky tonk hero
F#m                    Bm
She was the west Texas rose
G                            D
He had his hands clenched in hatred
    E7                         A7
And she made the sweet flowers grow
     D                 G
They met on a Saturday evenin'
     F#m                          Bm
At a place called the Last Chance Saloon
G                            D
Her hand in his stopped his tremblin'
                        A7                D
When he laughed as they danced 'cross the room


CHORUS:
    F#m                   G
The jukebox was playing a beautiful song
  A7                         D
A tune called the West Texas Waltz
       F#m                             G
And it seemed like the whole world was dancin' along
         A7                   D
With the music controlling it all


SOLO


Away, come away from that window
Come lay down beside me a while
You know I stepped out of the shadows
To walk in the warmth of your smile
Nobody knows me like you do
You changed me and made me your man
I gave up the life of an outlaw
The day that you gave me your hand


CHORUS

D                   G
He was a honky tonk hero
    F#m                    Bm
And she was the west Texas rose
     G                 D
They met on a Saturday evenin'
                 A7            D
And she made the sweet flowers grow
