I was dancing with my baby
To that Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened
Happened to see
Well I didn't know I was going to see him
I introduced him to my baby
While, while they kept on playing
That friend stole my sweetheart
Away from me. yes he did

I remember, yeah, that night
Of that beautiful Tennessee Waltz
Oh you know, you'll never know
You'll never know just how much I've lost, ooh
I lost my baby, my sweet baby
While, while they kept on playing
That beautiful Tenne- Tennessee Waltz
Yeah yeah yeah now

I remember, yeah, that night
Of that beautiful Tennesse Waltz
Oh you know, you know, you know
Just how much I've lost
Ooh honey, I lost too much, yeah
I lost my baby, my sweet baby
While, while they kept on playing
That beautiful, wonderful
That marvelous, yeah man that glorious
That cotton pickin' Tenne-
Tennessee Waltz

I lost my baby, my my my my baby
