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

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) |C|GDA|C|C|

        (VERSE 1)
              C                             C7        F
        I was dancin' with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz
                C            Am          D    G
        When an old friend I happened to see.
               C                           C7              F
        I introduced him to my darlin' and while they were dancin'
           C               F    C     G    C
        my friend stole my sweetheart from me.

        (CHORUS 1)
          C            C7            F         C
        I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
                               Am          D    G
        'cause I know just how much I have lost
              C                          C7              F
        Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
             C         F  C  G   C 
        That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

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

        (VERSE 2)
              C                           C7        F
        Now I wonder how a dance like the Tennessee Waltze
                   C         Am          D    G
        Could have broken my heart so complete
               C                              C7             F
        Well I couldn't blame my darlin', and who could help fallin'
           C            F  C    G  C
        In love with my darlin' so sweet

        (CHORUS 2)
                C           C7           F         C
        Well it must be the fault of the Tennessee Waltz  
                                Am            D     G
        Wish I'd known just how much it would cost              
              C                               C7           F
        But I didn't see it commin', it's all over but the cryin'  
                 C          F  C  G   C
        Blame it all on the Tennessee Waltz

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

New second verse written by Cohen

                 C                                C7        F
        She goes dancin' with the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz
              C             Am       D      G
        and I feel like I'm falling apart
                 C                            C7          F 
        and it's stronger than drink and it's deeper than sorrow
             C            F    C  G  C  
        this darkness she left in my heart

        I remember the night ...  (CHORUS 1)

        That beautiful Tennessee Waltz
