"Play Me the Waltz of the Angels" Lyrics

Buck Owens

(Dennis Knudson/Rory Lee)
Buck Owens & The Derailers

Played a party last night for some old folks
They were dancing and smiling at me
'Cept this old man alone at a table
As if there's someplace that he'd rather be.

So I said, "Sir, can I play something for you.
Something special that you'd like to hear?"
When he looked up at me he was smiling
Oh, but his eyes couldn't hide the tears.

Chorus:
He said, "Play me the waltz of the angels,
And I'll close my eyes and pretend.
Play me the waltz of the angels,
So I can dance with my angel again."

--- Instrumental ---

He said, "Yes, that's the song I remember
Thats' the one that she loved the best
It was playing the night that I met her
And it was playing when we laid her to rest."

Chorus:
"Play me the waltz of the angels,
And I'll close my eyes and pretend.
Play me the waltz of the angels,
So I can dance with my angel again."

"Let me dance with my angel again..."

--- Instrumental to fade ---
