Leonard Cohen – Tennessee Waltz lyrics

Written by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King
Additional verse: Leonard Cohen

I was dancing with my darlin'
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
Introduced him to my loved one
And while they were waltzing
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.
She comes dancing through the darkness
To the Tennessee Waltz
And I feel like I'm falling apart
And it's stronger than drink
And it's deeper than sorrow
This darkness she's left in my heart.
