Kentucky Waltz

Lyrics: Bill Monroe
Music: Bill Monroe

Played by Jerry Garcia with Leon Russell, Doug Sahm, Phil Lesh and Mary Egan at the Armadillo World Headquarters on 23 November 1972.

We were waltzing that night in Kentucky
Beneath the beautiful harvest moon
And I was the boy that was lucky
But it all ended too soon

As I sit here alone in the moonlight
I see her smiling face
And I long once more for her embrace
In that beautiful Kentucky waltz

As I sit here alone in the moonlight
I see her smiling face
And I long once more for her embrace
In that beautiful Kentucky waltz

We were waltzing that night in Kentucky
Beneath the beautiful harvest moon
And I was the boy that was lucky
But it all, Lord it all ended too soon

As I sit here alone in the moonlight
I see her smiling face
And I long once more for her embrace
In that beautiful Kentucky waltz
