The Old Country Waltz
Neil Young
They were playing that old country waltz
In this empty bar echoin' off the wall.
When I first got the bad news that you set me free,
The band played the old country waltz to me.

Well, I loved, and I lost, and I cried
The day that the two of us died.
Ain't got no excuses; I just want to ride
While the band plays the old country waltz.

Out the window the moon shines
On the roofs of the cars
While I knock down tequila and salt, oh.
And the band plays the old country waltz.

And we're playin' it; that old country waltz
In this empty bar echoin' off the wall.
Ain't got no excuses; we just want to play
That good old country waltz.

I ain't got no excuses, I just want to play
The good old country waltz.
The good old country waltz.
