Artist/Band: Old 97s
Lyrics for Song: Valium Waltz
Lyrics for Album: Drag It Up [2004]



Let's drink as if lovers

Of the ultra-familiar

To hover above her

As she's checking you out



To wander around her

But never sleep with her

To watch her through windows

As she pours herself out



Scoring her shipwreck

With fiddles and DoBros

You'll laugh at the plainclothes

Who police the crowd



And carry her under

Like water or ether

And spirit her off

When the music's too loud



CHORUS

And it's written all over

The face of the daughter

Of the mayor of

Marble Falls



When she winds up in Denton town

Doin' the Valium Waltz

When she winds up In Denton town

Doin' the Valium Waltz



Dream of the day when

Your memory is fickle

You long for a time when

Your mind is made up



Wonder how long 'fore

You're pear-shaped and wrinkled

Wound up on windowsills

All knotted up



REPEAT CHORUS



When she winds up in Denton town

Doin' the Valium Waltz
