V1:
They say this lasts forever,
That's just what I'm afraid of,
I'll never dance like this again!
She smiled like a Georgia summer,
She laughs with the sound of thunder,
I wanna dance like this again!

V2:
I'm not the marryin' kind,
I've said a thousand times,
But I've never danced like this before!
She's got them pretty little shoes,
And I love the way she moves,
I wanna dance like this again!

Chorus:
I was free and far from home,
I was young and on my own,
I was blind as I could be,
Thinkin' love was not for me,
Till the night I met the girl named Tennessee!

V3:
Lights came down,
And the room spun slow,
Started sayin' she had to go.
Don't go baby, I, didn't get your name!
She said Don't worry
I did not say!

Bridge:
Oh she, danced away with my
Heart and soul!
Who she was I will,
Never know!

Danced away with my,
Hopes and dreams!
My sweet girl from Tennessee!

Chorus:
I was free and far from home,
I was young and on my own,
I was blind as I could be,
Thinkin' love was not for me,
Till the night I met that girl named Tennessee!

[Whistling fades out]
