Starry Southern Nights
Starry Southern Nights
Written by Alex MacLeod

The band was playing a waltz
The old man stumbled from his chair
A sad smile flashed across his face
As his mind drifted somewhere

He made his way through the crowd
To an empty dance floor
He gently took his lover’s hand
He fell in love with her once more

He held her tightly in his arms
Beneath those shiny neon lights
Like he did when they were kids
Under the starry southern nights

He whispered, “Dear I love you,”
“And I will ‘til I die.”
Now he’s waltzing with her memory
Beneath the Starry Southern Nights

The fiddle hung on one last note
Then his eyes filled up with tears
Although they dance here every night
His one true love’s been gone for years

He whispered, “Dear I love you,”
“And I will til I die.”
Now he’s waltzing with her memory
Beneath the Starry Southern Nights
