Tennessee Waltz
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee waltz
When an old friend I happened to meet
I introduced her to my darling
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night
And the Tennessee waltz
I know now just what I have lost
Yes I lost my little darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee waltz

I remember the night
And the Tennessee waltz
I know now just what I have lost
Yes I lost my little darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee waltz
Oh the beautiful Tennessee waltz

I was dancing with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to meet
I introduced her to my darling
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me
I remember that night and the Tennessee Waltz
I know now just what I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz
I remember that night and the Tennessee Waltz
I know now just what I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

When the world loses someone this gifted, songs like this make your heart ache and your tears flow!!

Angela LEE

What a talented vocalist! She can create another new style of singing for an old song. Love her sensational voice!

Betty Bostian

I love her rendition better than any I've heard.

SB

It's the best Betty

Geoff G

It sucks to discover an amazing artist after her passing. I wish I could've seen her in concert.

She turned this into something I didn't know it could be. It's as if the true song had been locked away all these years, only later to be set free by Eva.

Mary Nugent

Until I heard Eva Cassidy singing this, it always sounded trite. She brings the impact of a moment in time that altered someone's life. Beautifully done!!

@GRJ2733 SPOT ON

Yes, all respect to others who've done this, but I never found any real meaning in it until hearing Eva. It's as if the song was waiting for her.
