Like An Old Fashioned Waltz 
by Emmylou Harris   written by  Sandy Denny
C         F                C
Roses are red  violets are blue
          F                      C
Primroses pale on a velvet green hue
            Dm                Am
Warm summer days by cool waterfalls
Like music we hear
       F           C           G7
Those things we'll always hold dear
        Am   F         C
Like an old  fashioned waltz
When the moonlight shines down
On the Hollywood world
                F                     C
And the heroine waits for her love to return
                Dm                       Am
And the violins play from behind garden walls
           G7      F               C      Dm
Oh how I'd love to remain with the silver refrain
      Am   F         C
Of an old  fashioned waltz
                         F                             C
And they dance round the floor and there's no one else there
                    F                        C
And the world is no more and there's never a care
                Dm                       Am
By the perfect lagoon as the nightingale calls
              G7    F       C         Dm
With only the moon  and the nostalgic tune
      Am   F         C
Of an old  fashioned waltz
