The Tennessee Waltz chords (as sung by Patsy Cline)
Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King

C

C                                     C7        F
I was dancin' with my darlin', to the Tennessee Waltz
        C                        G7
When an old friend I happened to see
       C         
I introduced her to my loved one,
    C7              F
And while they were dancin',
   C               G7              C
my friend stole my sweetheart from me.

               E7            F         C
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz,
                                G7
now I know just how much I have lost
       C                           C7              F
Yes, I lost my little darlin', the night they were playing,
    C         G7        C
the beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

C                                     C7        F

        C                        G7

First, this is NOT a Patsy Cline song?it was Written by Redd Stewart (lyrics) and Pee Wee King (music) in 1946 and first released in December 1947 by PATTY PAGE!
Second, the second line chords should be C A7 D7 G7 with the C over the Old, the A7 over 'hap' of happened, and D7 over 'see' with the G7 following.
I would recommend you find the actual recording of the original to be sure the words are also correct, as I didn't check that part. I think there may be a verse missing, but I'm not certain.
However, it is possible that Patsy Cline did this later, but I couldn't find it on any listing of her works.
