The Last Waltz Lyrics

(Robbie:)
"We are gonna try a song we never played before... uh, we put
together kinda for the occasion. Its called 'The Last Waltz.'"

(Rick:)
She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Holding a lantern light
Waitin' for a man who's a riverboat gambler
He said he'd return tonight

(Levon:)
They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
[Unintelligible; doesn't sound like "Loving"] the whole night through
The riverboat gambler went off to make a killin'
And bring it on back to you

Evangeline, Evangeline, curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
That pulled her man away

(Rick:)
Now, Bayou Sam from South Lousianne
Had gamblin' in his veins
And Mama Moo (??) who loves only you
Why do ya cause her such pain?

(Levon:)
She went to the top of Hickory Hill
Stand in the lightnin' and thunder
Riverboat, it was sinkin?She watched that boat go under

Evangeline, Evangeline, curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
That pulled her man away

(Robbie & Richard:)

The last of November
Leaves on the ground
It's hard to remember
What city, what town (what town)
So many roads
Mothered (?) in stone
Surrounded by bones
It feels so alone

The last waltz, the last waltz
The last waltz with you
Dont mean the last dance is over
The last waltz, the last waltz
The last waltz was through
