Well I was dancin' with my baby to the Tennessee Waltz
When that old friend I happened I happened to see oh yeah 
I introduced her to my baby
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart away from me 
Oh yes he did

I remember the night and that Tennessee Waltz
Only  you know know how much I lost oh yeah
You know that I lost my lost my baby 
That night they kept playing
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz oh yeah

I was dancin' with my baby to that Tenne-Tennessee Waltz
When that old friend I happened I happened to see oh yeah
Introduced her to my baby
While while they were dancin' 
Dirty dog stole my baby from me

I remember that night and that Tennessee Waltz
Only you know just how much how much I have lost
You know that I lost my lost my baby
That night they kept on playing 
That beautiful
That wonderful
That marvelous
That glorious
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz
