West Texas Waltz
Recorded by Emmylou Harris with Flaco Jimanez
Written by Butch Hancock

D7 G
When you're ready for steady to go dancin' romancin'
D7
Grab your sweetheart and jump in your car

Drive right on down to the bright side of town
G
And be glad you don't have to drive far
D7 G
You'll be happy you don't have to go far
C
Park your pickups and Cadillacs Fords and Renaults
G D7 G F#m Em D7
And dance like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz

G
Grandmammy grandpappy if you wanna stay happy
D7
You better lace up your best dancin’ shoes

Come see us don't write us you can stop your arthritis
G
Just by dancin' away your blues
D7 G
Just by dancin' away your blues
C
So bind up your bunions with band-aids and gauze
G D7 G F#m Em D7
Come dance like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz

G
I met a fine banker and I'd sure like to thank him
D7
For the credit he gave me made me shout

He changed my whole attitude and to show my gratitude
G
I decided I'd just ask him out
D7 G
Yes I thought I just might ask him out
C
I said close up your windows and lock up your vaults
G D7 G F#m Em D7
And dance like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz

G
We spent the next to the last dollar in the old ice cream parlor
D7
On a milkshake a malt and a pop

Then we heard us some sounds there was a honky tonk lounge
G
Right next to the ice cream shop
D7 G
Next door to the ice cream shop
C
Now only two things are better than milkshakes and malts
G D7 G F#m Em D7
And one is dancin' like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz

G
And the other is somethin' but really it's nothin'
D7
To speak of it's somethin' to do

And if you've done it before you'll be doin' it some more
G
Just as soon as the dancin' is through
D7 G
Right after the dancin' is through
C
And if anybody asks you why just tell it's because
G D7 G
You been dancin' like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz
