| [G] | [D7] | [G] | [G]
I was [G] dancing with my | darlin' to the [G7] Tennessee [C] Waltz
When an [G] old friend I | happened to [D7] see [D7]
I intro- [G] duced him to my | darlin' and [G7] while they were [C] dancing
My [G] friend stole my [D7] sweetheart from [G] me [G]

Chorus
I re- [G] member the [B7] night and the [C] Tennessee [G] Waltz
'Cause I [G] know just how | much I have [D7] lost [D7]
Yes I [G] lost my little | darlin' the [G7] night they were [C] playing
The [G] beautiful [D7] Tennessee [G] Waltz [G]

Instrumental
| [G] | [G] | [G7] | [C]
| [G] | [G] | [D7] | [D7]
| [G] | [G] | [G7] | [C]
| [G] | [D7] | [G] | [G]

I re- [G] member the [B7] night and the [C] Tennessee [G] Waltz
'Cause I [G] know just how | much I have [D7] lost [D7]
Yes I [G] lost my little | darlin' the [G7] night they were [C] playing
The [G] beautiful [D7] Tennessee [G] Waltz [G]

She comes [G] dancing through the | darkness to the [G7] Tennessee [C] Waltz
And I [G] feel like I'm | falling a- [D7] part [D7]
And it's [G] stronger than | drink, and it's [G7] deeper than [C] sorrow
This [G] darkness she's [D7] left in my [G] heart [G]

I re- [G] member the [B7] night and the [C] Tennessee [G] Waltz
'Cause I [G] know just how | much I have [D7] lost [D7]
Yes I [G] lost my little | darlin' the [G7] night they were [C] playing
The [G] beautiful [D7] Tennessee [G] Waltz [C]
The [G] beautiful [D7] Tennessee [G] Waltz [G↓]
