Star spangled waltz
by Hank Snow
The band it was playing the Star Spangled Waltz,
The lights in the ball-room were low.
Oh 'twas sweet to my ears, I fought back my tears
For that waltz broke my heart long ago.
My sweetheart grew jealous as I danced with a friend,
And said that my love had grown false.
Then she told me goodbye 'neath that old southern sky
As we danced to the Star Spangled Waltz.
Then a face caught my eye as the dancers passed by
It was my sweetheart who left me to pine.
As she whispered my name I cuold see, oh so plain
That her heart, it was broken like mine.
Love had one it's last fight as I kissed her that night
As I did in the days long ago.
We had found new romance though we cried as we danced
To the beautiful Star Spangled Waltz.
