Lyrics
In the fall of '85 I heard my calling The heady lure of gold made the sound And without so much as an evening's rest I sold the farm and journeyed west To seek my fame and fortune in the ground In the spring of '86 I found my treasure With golden hair and diamond eyes of blue I humbly asked her for a dance I didn't need a second glance Before I swore my heart to one so true And you know Matilda always loved the waltzes She could dance a hundred stories with one song And every eye in the room Was like a dreamer 'neath the moon Watching Matilda waltz into the night My life within the mines left us wanting Matilda tried to dance away the pain I sometimes thought of forgetting gold And giving her a proper home I only wish I had that choice again In the winter of '91 I lost her It took an act of God to change my plans And all the ore I could ever find Could never hope to be as fine As the precious gem I let slip through my hands And you know Matilda always loved the waltzes She could dance a thousand stories with one song And every eye in the room Was like a dreamer 'neath the moon Watching Matilda waltz into the night And in my dreams a magic scene appears before my eyes An angel fair with shining hair spins in 3/4 time And you know Matilda always loved the waltzes She could dance a million stories with one song And every eye in the room Was like a dreamer 'neath the moon Watching Matilda waltz into the night
