Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
          G              Bm             Em  Em
There's a shoulder where death comes to cry
          C          C            D       D
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
          C              C    *Bm *Am G   B7
There's a tree where the doves go  to die
          Em             Em            Em      Em
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
       Am           E7         Am    Am *G
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost

C  C *G  *Am  G  G
Ay,   ay, ay, ay

Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh, I want you, I want you, I want you
     G            G        Em   Em
On a chair with a dead magazine
       C           C          D    D
In the cave at the tip of the lily
        C              C     *Bm *Am G    B7
In some hallways where love's ne-ver been
     Em            Em            Em       Em
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
     Am              E7            Am   Am *G
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand

C  C *G  *Am  G  G
Ay,   ay, ay, ay

          B7     B7        E7    E7

Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
         Am       Am        Em         Em
With its very own breath of brandy and death
Am7          Am7         G   G
Dragging its tail in the sea
Dsus4 D

Verse 3

          G       G       Em     Em
There's a concert hall in Vienna
           G           Bm         Em    Em
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
          C             C                 D       D
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
             C            C    *Bm *Am  G     B7
They've been sentenced to death by  the blues
        Em        Em             Em      Em
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
       Am         E7          Am     Am *G
With a garland of freshly cut tears?

C  C *G  *Am  G  G
Ay,   ay, ay, ay

There's an attic where children are playing
           G          G             Em   Em
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
     C           C      D        D
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
       C            C    *Bm *Am G    B7
In the mist of some sweet af-ter-noon
         Em              Em              Em     Em
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
         Am             E7        Am   Am *G
All your sheep and your lilies of snow

C  C *G  *Am  G  G
Ay,   ay, ay, ay

          B7     B7        E7    E7
Take this waltz, take this waltz

With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

Dragging its tail in the sea

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
        G         Bm         Em    Em
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
    C        C          D        D
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
   C            C  *Bm *Am   G      G
My mouth on the dew of  your thighs
         G       G         Em        Em
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook
         G           Bm            Em   Em
With the photographs there and the moss
         C            C             D      D
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
   C        C  *Bm *Am G     B7
My cheap violin and my cross
           Em       Em           Em      Em
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
       Am             E7           Am    Am
To the pools that you lift on your wrist

   *G  C    C *G  *Am G    G
Oh, my love,   oh, my love
          B7     B7        Em    Em
Take this waltz, take this waltz
     Am              Am             C C
It's yours now, it's all that there is
