Another clue.I played at the Douglas County Fair for 5 days with the Oregon Old Time Fiddlers and we do take requests.Waltz Across Walmart was requested but we were unable to do the request,but I did leave the stage and talked to the gentleman who made the request and he said he lived in Mountain View ARK,for 2 years and heard this tune several times by different groups throughout the city so maybe if we have some mudcatters in that area they can find the words.Hopefully this will help.Louie Roy

I'll have to confess to living in Mountain View, Arkansas but I have not heard that song. I'll have to start asking around. I would guess someone was singing it on the court square and we have folks from just about everywhere congregating around the courthouse and joining in the music.

I suspect that "Waltz across Walmart" was just a joke title, a reference to a song that doesn't exist. There are lots of joke titles, especially about country music.

Gene has asked me about this one a couple of times. I have asked around a bit with no luck. But as Arkie said yesterday, lots of people from lots of places sing and play on the square. I's a matter of talking to the right ones.

My google search brought up nothing except this thread.

I wrote a song about 20 years ago called Waltzing through Woolworths. I wonder if its the same one.

i don't know that i've got a copy. i wrote it for a comedian called Titch Cooper who decided to relocate to Florida and The Canary Isles.

who knows...?

Could this be the song you heard?

Transcribed from a sound sample at RVsongs4you:

WALTZING THROUGH WAL-MART
Cliff Rodman

We're waltzing through Wal-Mart while parking on their lot,
Staying where the camping is free.
Out come the slides, the chairs, and the fake grass.
We're setting up our RV.
Folks are a-starin' but we ain't a-carin'.
The satellite has its own parkin' spot.
We're waltzing through Wal-Mart, parkin' on their lot,
Staying where the camping is free.

We're waltzing through Wal-Mart, shopping till we drop.
We're happy as we can be....

[As sung by Cliff Rodman on his album "RVsongs4you."

[Note: the song as recorded does NOT use the same tune as WALTZ ACROSS TEXAS, but I think it could be sung to that tune, although the scansion leaves something to be desired. Whaddaya wanna bet, the writer first conceived of this song as a parody of WALTZ ACROSS TEXAS, but then changed the tune, and maybe the title, to make it sound more original?

[Cliff Rodman, by the way, has a very nice, mellow voice.]

Could it be to the tune of the Waltz Across Texas written by Rodney Crowel and recorded by Emmylou Harris on WRECKING BALL? It's a modern tune and song (of course) and the lyrics seem to fit better to that tune.

It has been a couple of years since we looked at this thread so maybe some new mudcatter will have the tune and the lyrics and Jim Dixon Waltzing through Walmart parking lot isn't the same song. I was able to find a source that had a cd with this on it and it has several other tune all about RVS

An article in the Fort Scott [Kansas] Tribune says "Wes Coleman, the mandolin player and singer from the Butler area" sang WALTZ ACROSS WALMART (sic) at a senior citizen dance at the Buck Run Community Center.

This blog says Wayne Hoover sang WALTZ ACROSS WALMART (sic) at the Countryside Jamboree in Cameron, MO on 5/9/2008.

At least we know the song really exists; it's not just a "joke title."

I suppose a sufficiently motivated person could track down these two musicians and ask them.

WALTZ ACROSS WAL-MART (It took nearly 12 years but here are the lyrics:)

CHORUS: Waltz across Wal-Mart with checkbook in hand
And a cart that holds way, way too much.
It rolls free and easy up and down every aisle
Among all the bargains and such.

1. When my wife thinks of Wal-Mart with that look in her eyes,
It seems that my wallet gets poorer.
We'll be bankrupt tomorrow but we'll have lots of stuff
From every darn aisle in the store. CHORUS

2. You can buy underwear or parts for your car,
Get your meds at the prescription store,
Food for your dog, and seeds for your bird,
And a corset for your wife and much more. CHORUS

3. My back aches, my feet hurt as I trail her around,
Then some lady hits my heel with her cart.
A man's life is in danger in more ways than one
When he takes his wife out to Wal-Mart.

This request was posted in April, 1998. Louie Roy answered it in December, 2009. Now, that's tenacious. Good job, Louie!

My wife makes ME do the Wal-Mart shopping. She hates the place.
