Waltzing’s For Dreamers Richard Thompson

A lovely, sad and wistful tune. The concertina used here is a tiny, sweet little 18 button Stagi named “Tina”.
Oh play me a blues song, fade down the lights
I'm sad as a proud man can be sad tonight
Just let me dream on, just let me sway
While the sweet violins and accordions play
Miss, you don't know me, but can't we pretend
That we care for each other ‘til the band reach the end
One step for aching
Two steps for breaking
Waltzing's for dreamers
And losers in love
One step for sighing
Two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers
And losers in love
They say love's for gamblers, the pendulum swings
I bet hard on love and I lost everything
So don't send me home now, put a shot in my arm
And we'll drink out old memories and we'll drink in the dawn
Mr. Bandleader, won't you play one more time
For I've good folding money in this pocket of mine.
