Jim Dixon Lyr Req: Walla Walla Waltz (Zeke Hoskin) (4) Lyr Add: WALLA WALLA WALTZ (Zeke Hoskin) 18 Jun 20

My transcription. I have spelled some words phonetically according to the way they are pronounced in the recording.

Words and music by Zeke Hoskin
As recorded by Tom Rawson & Friends in this video at YouTube.

1. The band is finished tuning so listen to the caller,
Swingin' with your partner as we waltz through Waller Waller.
Step out for some beers; if you're underage, chocolate malts,
Then back to the dance hall for the Walla Walla Waltz.

CHORUS: Walla Walla Waltz, Walla Walla Waltz,
Dancin' with your darlin' in spite of all their faults.
Walla Walla Waltz, Walla Walla Waltz,
Dancin' with your darlin' to the Walla Walla Waltz.

2. Cuddle with your woman; snuggle with your man.
Never mind the highways to Richland and Spokane.
The roads are full of ice, and no one ever salts,
So hang onto your partner for the Walla Walla Waltz. CHORUS

3. Walla Walla onions, big, sweet, and round,
Toss 'em on the barbecue and grill 'em till they're brown.
Walla Walla Sweets are the onions most divine,
Even better washed down with Walla Walla wine. CHORUS

4. There's Walla Walla Whitman and Walla Walla U,
And a community college in Walla Walla too.
Excessive misbehavior? No ethics? Well, then,
You can do your four years at the Walla Walla Pen. CHORUS

5. There's folks born and raised here, and now there's a host
Of Walla Walla wannabes who flock from the coast.
The friendliest people that you ever saw
Are waltzing down the sidewalks of Walla Walla, Wah. CHORUS TWICE
