12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
This waltz that you saved for me,
I'll always keep in my memory,
This waltz, tho' it means "Good-bye,"
I'll always treasure each tender measure.
Ever in dreams with you I'll sway, dear,
To the waltz you saved for me.
Ever in dreams when I'm away, dear,
I'll hear this melody.
Whisper "Good-bye" and gently say, dear,
That in all the days to be,
You will sometimes remember,
The Waltz You Saved For Me.
