TENNESSEE WALTZ   By  Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King   3/4 time

      |G               |Gmaj7        |G7       |C
I was waltzing with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz
        |G           |E7         |A7      |D7
When an old friend I happened to see.
     |G              |Gmaj7        |G7             |C
Introduced him to my loved one and while they were waltzing
   |G              |D7        |G        |G
my friend stole my sweetheart from me.

    |G         |B7           |C        |G
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
      |G            |E7         |A7     |D7
Now I know just how much I have lost
      |G             |G          |G7             |C
Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
     |G        |D7       |G
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

(solo, same as a verse)
(CHORUS 1)                   or CHORUS 1 alone again

      |G           |Gmaj7         |G7       |C
Now I wonder how a dance like the Tennessee Waltz
           |G        |E7         |A7      |D7
Could have broken my heart so complete
       |G                |Gmaj7       |G7            |C
Well I couldn't blame my darlin', and who could help fallin'
   |G           |D7        |G
In love with my darlin' so sweet

        |G          |B7          |C        |G
Well it must be the fault of the Tennessee Waltz 
         |G             |E7           |A7     |D7
Wish I'd known just how much it would cost             
      |G            |G                |G7          |C
But I didn't see it commin', it's all over but the cryin' 
         |G         |D7       |G
Blame it all on the Tennessee Waltz

(solo, same as a verse)

(VERSE 3 by Leonard Cohen)

         |G               |Gmaj7          |G7       |C
She goes dancin' with the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz
      |G            |E7     |A7       |D7
and I feel like I'm falling apart
         |G            |Gmaj7         |G7         |C
and it's stronger than drink and it's deeper than sorrow
     |G           |D7        |G 
this darkness she left in my heart
 |G           |B7
I remember the night ...  (CHORUS 1)
