Kentucky Waltz

A waltz by Bill Monroe. Usually in G or D.

G G G   D D D
We were waltzing that night in Kentucky

G G D7   D D A7
Beneath the beautiful harvest moon

D7 D7 D7   A7 A7 A7
And I was the boy that was lucky

D7 D7 G   A7 A7 D
But it all had ended too soon

G G G   D D D
As I sit here alone in the moonlight

G G7 C    D D7 G
And I see your smiling face

C Am G   G Em D
And I long once more for your embrace

A D7 G   E A7 D
And the beautiful Kentucky waltz
