Written by pee wee king and redd stewart
(patsy cline radio transcription)

I was [waltzing]* with my darlin' to the tennessee waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced [her to my loved one]** and while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember that night and the tennessee waltz
Only you know just how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
That beautiful tennessee waltz

(repeat last verse)

    Once you find your sweetheart you dont dance with other people and then he/she will have to find another way to dump you.
