I was dancing with my baby
To that Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened, happened to see
I didn't know I was gonna see him

I introduced him to my baby
While, while they kept on playing
That friend stole my sweetheart
Away from me, yes, he did

I remember, yeah, that night
Of that beautiful Tennessee Waltz
Oh you know, you'll never know
You'll never know just how much I've lost

I lost my baby, my sweet baby
While, while they kept on playing
That beautiful Tenne, Tennessee Waltz
Yeah yeah yeah, now

I remember, yeah, that night
Of that beautiful Tennessee Waltz
Oh you know, you know, you know
Just how much I've lost, oh honey, I've lost too much, yeah

I've lost my baby, my sweet baby
While, while they kept on playing
That beautiful, wonderful, that marvelous, yeah man, that glorious
That cotton pickin' Tenne, Tennessee Waltz, hey baby

I lost my baby, na na na na baby
