They say this lasts forever
That's just what I'm afraid of
I'll never dance like this again
She smiles like a Georgia summer
She laughs at the sound of thunder
I wanna dance like this again

Ooh, ooh

I'm not the marrying kind
I've said a thousand times
I've never danced like this before
She's got the prettiest shoes
And I love the way she moves
I wanna dance like this again

I was free and far from home
I was young and on my own
I was blind as I could be
Thinking love was not for me
'Til the night I met the girl named Tennessee

Ooh, ooh

Lights came down and the room spun slow
Started saying she had to go
Don't go baby, I didn't catch your name
She said, "Don't worry. I did not say."

Oh she danced away with my heart and soul
Who she was I will never know
Danced away with my hopes and dreams
My sweet girl from Tennessee

I was free and far from home
I was young and on my own
I was blind as I could be
Thinking love was not for me
'Til the night I met that girl named Tennessee

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
