Vienna

 

I bought this violin in Kentucky

Travelled across the sea

Here ‘to the streets of Vienna

Just to see what I could see

I’ll play it pretty, I’ll play it sweet

I’ll waltz the strings with ease

I bought this violin in Kentucky

Could you spare a dime for me

 

I met a girl named Maria

She brought me some bread and some wine

I stayed with her until Sunday

But I knew I would leave her behind

I’ll play it pretty, I’ll play it sweet

I’ll waltz the strings with ease

I bought this violin Kentucky

Could you spare a dime for me

 

There’s snow on the streets of Vienna

The Danube flows lonesome and slow

But there’s another cafe around the corner

And I’ll play it for them softly and low

I’ll play it pretty, I’ll play it sweet

I’ll waltz the strings with ease

I bought this violin in Kentucky

Could you spare a dime for me
