lyrics

Words and music by Redd Stewart and PeeWee King,
additional verse by Leonard Cohen

I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced him to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
When I think of how much I have lost
Yes I lost my loving darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Now she goes dancing with the darkness
To the Tennessee Waltz
And I feel like I’m falling apart
It’s stronger than drink
And it’s deeper than sorrow
This darkness she left in my heart

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
When I think of how much I have lost
Yes I lost my loving darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
