From: Dan Evergreen

Marvelous little waltz from the album, "Soldiers' Songs" Sounds like it would be great for guitar. Can you help me out?

your eyes are as bright as they were the first night when we danced to an old fashion tune in a dusty old school house on saturday nights how we laughed as we waltzed round the room we came from the valleys to the dark city alleys to care for the young and the poor and me a young soldier with medals galore that i'd won in the african war.

how my heart filled with joy as the others passed by and the look in thier eyes i well knew that never before as we swept round the floor had they seen someone lovely as you

your hair shone like gold a joy to behold your beauty was known far and wide there was many a young lad who would lay down his life for one moment to be by your side

you gave them no glances you gave them no dances as you gracefully stepped on the floor with me a young soldier with medals galore that i'd won in in the african war.

how my heart filled with joy as the others passed by by the look in thier eye i well knew that never before as we swept round the floor had they seen someone lovely as you

when the morning had come and the dancing all done we would walk in the dawn of the day i would tell you tall stories of battles and glories and of comrades who fell in the fray now the years come and go still the love that you show is as sweet and as warm as before when i a young soldier with medals galore came home from the african war.

how my heart with joy (2 times) as the others passed by by the look in thier eyes i well knew that never before as we swept round the floor had they seen someone as lovely as you.

sorry no chords
