The Band Played On

Casey would waltz with the strawberry blonde

And the band played on.

He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he'd adore

And the band played on

G                                  D7          G7           C
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded

        Am                      E        Am
The poor girl would shake with a - larm

          Gdim                   G                   E7
He'd never leave the girl with the strawberry curl

   A7    D7        G    Gdim  Am7  D7
And the band played on.
