The Tennessee Waltz:Connie Francis. Hit the charts in 1959.(***I believe Francis sang only Verses #1 & #2 plus CHORUS:#1, and repeated them. I added the other verse(#3) and chorus(#2.) in case anyone was interested. The chords are my version.) #1. E E7 A I was dancin' with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz E C#m F# B When an old friend I happened to see. E E7 A I introduced him to my darlin' and while they were dancin' E A B E my friend stole my sweetheart from me. CHORUS:#1. E E7 A E I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz C#m F# B cause I know just how much I have lost. E E7 A Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin' E A B E That beautiful Tennessee Waltz. #2. E E7 A Now I wonder how a dance like the Tennessee Waltz E C#m F# B Could have broken my heart so complete. E E7 A Well, I couldn't blame my darlin', and who could help fallin' E A B E In love with my darlin' so sweet. CHORUS:#2. E E7 A E Well it must be the fault of the Tennessee Waltz C#m F# B Wish I'd known just how much it would cost. E E7 A But I didn't see it comin', it's all over but the cryin', E A B E Blame it all on the Tennessee Waltz. #3. E E7 A He goes dancin' with the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz, E C#m F# B and I feel like I'm falling apart. E E7 A and it's stronger than drink and it's deeper than sorrow, E A B E this darkness he left in my heart. CHORUS:#1. A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
