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
