West Texas Waltz  Billy Joe Shaver

West Texas Waltz (w/ Kimmie Rhodes)
written by Billy Joe Shaver
[D]He was a honky tonk [G]hero
[F#m]She was the west Texas [Bm]rose
[G]He had his hands clenched in [D]hatred
And [E7]she made the sweet flowers [A7]grow
They [D]met on a Saturday [G]evenin'
At a [F#m]place called the Last Chance [Bm]Saloon
[G]Her hand in his stopped his t[D]remblin'
When he laughed as they [A7]danced 'cross the [D]room
The [F#m]jukebox was playing a [G]beautiful song
A [A7]tune called the West Texas [D]Waltz
And it [F#m]seemed like the whole world was [G]dancin' along
With the [A7]music controlling it [D]all
Away, come away from that window
Come lay down beside me a while
You know I stepped out of the shadows
To walk in the warmth of your smile
Nobody knows me like you do
You changed me and made me your man
I gave up the life of an outlaw
The day that you gave me your hand
[D]He was a honky tonk [G]hero
And [F#m]she was the west Texas [Bm]rose
They [G]met on a Saturday [D]evenin'
And she made the [A7]sweet flowers [D]grow
