The Last Waltz
By Drew Kennedy
Written by Drew Kennedy
CD: Dollar Theater Movie (2007)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

          C                            Am
There's a good chance my dancing won't be up to speed
       Dm                        G
But if you follow something dont make it my lead
    C                      Am
I'm either too fast or I'm lost in between
           Dm         G
You should watch your toes

You'd think after all of the years that I spent
Watchin the bands play to their cigarettes
I would be better at this but I guess
That's the way it goes

Bridge 1:
Am                       G
Later tonight they'll be lockin the doors
Dm                     G
Counting the money and sweepin' the floors
        E                             F  
For the first time in years they wont play anymore
For the dancers all spinnin' around
        F           G          C
They're closing the honky tonk down

The World War I veteran that bought up this place
Died in the Sixities at 78
His wife kept it running and opened it late
Just to pay her bills

Bridge 2:
I'm prob'ly boring you nearly to death
But you look so pretty in that cotton dress
I saved my first and last dance for the best
Lady here waltzing around
They're closing the honky tonk down

    E  F  

It was my pleasure to share that last dance
And I'm glad you gave an old man one more chance
To feel like a kid before part of his past
Slowly fades away

I hope I wasn't too hard on your feet
You're much too graceful for left footed me
And I only live a few blocks up the street
So I guess that I'll see you around
They're closing the honky tonk down
They're closing the honky tonk down
