I was dancing with my  baby (darling)
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see

I introduced him (her) to my baby (loved one)
And that’s they were dancing
That friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night
And the Tennessee Waltz
That’s only now I realize how much I have lost

Yes, I lost my pretty baby  (little darling)
The night at the band was playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz…
