The Tennessee Waltz [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to The Tennessee Waltz (1948), lyrics by Redd Stewart, music by Pee Wee King

All versions of The Tennessee Waltz tell the story of a person introducing his or her sweetheart to a friend who then waltzes away with her or him. The popularity of Tennessee Waltz also made it the fourth official song of the state of Tennessee in 1965

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]

I was dancin’ with my darlin’ to the Tennessee Waltz

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
