THE OCTOBER WALTZ
Words and music by Steve Suffet © 2008

Start on chorus:
Dance with me, dance with me, dance with me, dance with me,
Waltz me around the floor.
Dance with me, dance with me, dance with me, dance with me,
The October Waltz once more, the October Waltz once more.

Was a cold October night in the city,
The year was sixty-eight,
I was tired and poor, and you looked so pretty,
The moment you walked through the gate,
The moment you walked through the gate.

Was a Methodist Church, a Wednesday night dinner,
That church isn’t there anymore,
You were the saint who rescued this sinner,
The moment you walked through the door,
The moment you walked through the door. [chorus]

Was it fate or good fortune that brought us together?
Or were you there by design?
That mystery magic I’ll always remember,
The moment your eyes met mine,
The moment your eyes met mine.

We got married next summer in a garden of flowers,
To the sound of a sweet fiddle tune,
And we danced round and round in that garden for hours,
To the October Waltz in June,
To the October Waltz in June. [chorus]

It’s been forty years since that night in October,
I think of that night now and then,
While we still go dancing over and over,
To the October Waltz once again,
To the October Waltz once again. [chorus]
