belle of the ball lyrics – waylon jennings

belle of the ball

a vagabond dreamer, a rhymer and singer of songs
singing to no one and nowhere to really belong
i met a beautiful lady, a pure southern belle of the ball
like scarlet o’hara loved no one and wanted them all

[chorus:]
i’ll never forget you and love you inspite of your faults
the good and the bad i want to remember it all
i did a new dance and you did your tennessee waltz
the party’s all over i came uninvited
i’m leaving and taking the belle of the ball

there will always be someone i guess that’s the way it should be
i guess i should know that someone used to be me
they’ll gather around her soon they’ll all look the same
at the feet of the lady are lover’s without any names

[chorus]
