Tennessee Waltz

           G               Bm/G           G7        C
Well I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
        G            Em          D
When an old friend I happened to see
       G               Bm/G 
I introduced him to my darlin'
    G7              C
And while they were dancin'
   G               D               G          D
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

          G            G7            C         G
    And I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
               G            Em         D
    I couldn't sleep i just turned and tossed
           G       Bm/G 
    when i lost my darlin'
        G7              C            G         D         G
    the night they were playing that beautiful Tennessee Waltz

{musical interlude}

       G            Bm/G           G7       C
Well I wonder how a dance like the Tennesee Waltz
        G            Em       D         A-D
Could have broken my heart so complete
       G                  Bm/G 
Well I could not blame my darlin'
    G7                 C
And who could help but fall
        G            D          G          D
Fall in love with my darlin' so sweet 


So it must be the fault of the Tennesse Waltz
Wish I'd known just how much it would cost
But i could not see it comin'
It's all over but the cryin' 
Blame it all on the Tennesse Waltz

{whistle interlude}

She goes dancin' in the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz
And I feel like im fallin' apart
It's stronger than drinkin' and it's deeper than sorrow
This feelin' she left in my heart

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
And I know how much I have lost
Well i lost my little darlin'
The night they were playin' that beautiful Tennessee Waltz
... the beautiful Tennessee Waltz

A different version ...

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

(Instrumental Interlude)

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
