THE TEXAS WALTZ

Clifford Fry, Douglas Sharp - lyrics
charlie midnite - music

I loved you before
I held you in my arms
The Texas Waltz was playing
It told me of your charms
The wind gently rustled
As night birds took wing
Your smile told my heart
The words I must sing

CHORUS
I'll love you forever
Sang the sweet Texas Waltz
By the Guadalupe River
I'll find you when I'm lost
I'll come to your side
When you hum this old tune
I'll put my arms around you
We'll dance beneath the moon

I remember your smile
As we first began to dance
You held me so sweetly
My heart had no chance
Bluebonnets in the meadow
Dance like you and me
The Texas Waltz is soaring
For a love that’s meant to be.

CHorus
I'll love you forever
Sang the sweet Texas Waltz
By the power of the River
I'll find you when I'm lost
I'll come to your side
When you hum this old tune
I'll put my arms around you
We'll dance beneath the moon

BRIDGE

By the Guadalupe River
I kissed you for the first time
Love is a mystery
This life cannot solve

The moon was shining brightly
Over Gruene Hall that night
The fiddle played the sweet Texas Waltz
As I held you against me
As we danced
As we danced
As we danced
To the sweet Texas Waltz.

There is beauty and wonder
That touches you and me
But you in my arms
Is all that I can see
The sweet breeze of spring
The ribbon in your hair
The Texas Waltz conveys
All the love I wish to share

chorus

I'll love you forever
Sang the sweet Texas Waltz
By the power of the River
I'll find you when I'm lost
I'll come to your side
When you hum this old tune
I'll put my arms around you
We'll dance beneath the moon
