WALTZ YOU SAVED FOR ME, THE. American, Waltz. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). A song and waltz instrumental widely recorded by various country music performers since the 1930's, and often heard played at fiddle contests. The lyric was by songwriter Gus Kahn, born in Coblenz, Germany on November 6, 1886, who immigrated to the United States in 1891, where his family settled in Chicago. Kahn died in 1941. Composer credits also go to Emil Flindt and bandleader Wayne King, "The Waltz King". It was first recorded by Wayne King and His Orchestra in November, 1930. The waltz was popularized by Bob Wills and others, who also performed King's "Goofus." Missouri fiddler Art Galbraith always closed his dances with this number[1]
