by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King
I was waltzing with my darlin', to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
Introduced him to my true love, and while they were dancing,
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.
