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
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
That good old country waltz.
That good old country waltz.
