I was waltzing 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.
