Jim Eanes

We met at the garden, the moonlight was grand
You looked like a member of some angel band
Your eyes seemed to sparkle and I held you tight
While we danced the Rose Garden Waltz every night

Among the red roses we wended our way
Although we had only a moment to stay
But in those few moments my dreams all seemed true
As I danced the Rose Garden Waltz there with you

I sit by my window alone in my room
While out in the garden the roses still bloom
They try so to cheer me, they know that I’m blue
They know that I’m lonesome, oh how I miss you

Tonight I’ll remember each sweet rendesvous
Though years keep on passing I still think of you
There’s no use in dreaming, I know it’s in vein
To dream of the Rose Garden Waltz once again
