I found this song at uwp.edu ../lyrics/f/folk/  posted by ?                           
                            
In his lyric compilation Dean Engelhardt writes that
Leonard Cohen performed it at some concerts (does anybody know where and
when?). 


I will put this song to nevada ../c/leonard_cohen
But before this song goes to nevada can somebody please add the songwriter,                            
a record where it's played and perhaps some melody.  

That would be very great. Thank You very much, to all of You.
                            
                            
                            
                            TENNESSEE WALTZ
                                   By ?

        (intro) |D|GDA|D|D|

        (VERSE 1)
              D                             D7        G
        I was dancin' with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz
                D            Bm          E    A
        When an old friend I happened to see.
               D                           D7              G
        I introduced him to my darlin' and while they were dancin'
           D               G    D     A    D
        my friend stole my sweetheart from me.

        (CHORUS 1)
          D            D7            G         D
        I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
                               Bm          E    A
        'cause I know just how much I have lost
              D                          D7              G
        Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
             D         G  D  A   D 
        That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

        (solo, same as a verse)
        (CHORUS 1)                   or CHORUS 1 alone again


        (VERSE 2)
              D                           D7        G
        Now I wonder how a dance like the Tennessee Waltze
                   D         Bm          E    A
        Could have broken my heart so complete
               D                              D7             G
        Well I couldn't blame my darlin', and who could help fallin'
           D            G  D    A  D
        In love with my darlin' so sweet


        (CHORUS 2)
                D           D7           G         D
        Well it must be the fault of the Tennessee Waltz  
                                Bm            E     A
        Wish I'd known just how much it would cost              
              D                               D7           G
        But I didn't see it commin', it's all over but the cryin'  
                 D          G  D  A   D
        Blame it all on the Tennessee Waltz

        (solo, same as a verse)
        (CHORUS 2)


New second verse written by Cohen

                 D                                D7        G
        She goes dancin' with the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz
              D             Bm       E      A
        and I feel like I'm falling apart
                 D                            D7          G 
        and it's stronger than drink and it's deeper than sorrow
             D            G    D  A  D  
        this darkness she left in my heart

        I remember the night ...  (CHORUS 1)

        That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Instead of the GDA progression, try A7 instead.
