I Don’t Remember A Waltz©1998

by Ruth A. Bloomquist

 

She was a wide eyed beauty

Some thought that she’d never stay

Some thought the town was too small for her dreams

Some thought that she’d fly away

But one night at the midsummer fair

A boy caught her eye from the edge of the crowd

They danced to the songs that the old boys remember

Some thought they were dancing on clouds

 

CHORUS

He said

I don’t remember a waltz

But that’s what she said that we danced to that night

I just remember the stars and her eyes

But I don’t remember a waltz

 

The days and the months flowed together

They courted and married and stayed

They worked the land with thier backs and thier hands

They raised thier children and prayed

The dust brought tears to thier eyes

The floods washed thier crops clean away

But somehow thier love held them tight to the land

And dreams of the past they’d replay CHORUS

 

Now she’s still a wide eyed beauty

Though silver now touches her hair

And her dreams are still grand for the town and the land

And he knows she won’t fly away

At night now they dance in the kitchen

She says remember the first waltz we had

Remember the moon and the stars at midsummer

Remember the girl and the lad

 

And he says

I don’t remember a waltz

But that’s what you said that we danced to that night

I just remember the stars and your eyes

But I don’t remember a waltz.

 

I don’t remember a waltz

But that’s what you said that we danced to that night

I just remember the stars

But I don’t remember a waltz
