Conway Twitty And Loretta Lynn – I Still Believe In Waltzes Lyrics

I pushed him away and tearfully said I’m just not that kind of girl
You might think I’m square cause you’ve been around
And you’re wise in the ways of the world
I know that makin’ it’s takin’ for granted it’s all easy come easy go
He pulled me close and whispered now darlin’
There’s somethin’ I want you to know

I still believe in waltzes and girls with old fashioned ways
I still believe in love songs and the good in the good old days
I’ve always liked happy endings somebody’s dream coming true
I still believe in waltzes and dancing the last one with you

He slipped into bed I turned over and said I’m worried you’re workin’ so late
It’s just your job that keeps you away Lord I know the temptations are great
I’m just a wife I’m just a mama that’s not too exciting I know
He pulled me close and whispered those same words
He told me that not long ago

I still believe in waltzes and girls with old fashioned ways
I still believe in love songs and the good in the good old days
I’ve always liked happy endings somebody’s dream coming true
I still believe in waltzes and I’ll dance the last one with you
We still believe in waltzes
