Tennessee Waltz (CRD)  Leonard Cohen

        I was [D]dancin' with my darlin to the [D7]Tennessee [G]Waltz
        When an [D]old friend I [Bm]happened to [E]see. [A]
        I intro[D]duced him to my darlin' and [D7]while they were [G]dancin'
        my [D]friend stole my [G]sweet[D]heart [A]from [D]me.

        I [D]remember the [D7]night and the [G]Tennessee [D]Waltz
        'cause I know just how [Bm]much I have [E]lost [A]
        Yes I [D]lost my little darlin' the [D7]night they were [G]playin'
        That [D]beautiful [G]Ten[D]nes[A]see [D]Waltz

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

        Now I [D]wonder how a dance like the [D7]Tennessee [G]Waltze
        Could have [D]broken my [Bm]heart so com[E]plete[A]
        Well I [D]couldn't blame my darlin', and [D7]who could help [G]fallin'
        In [D]love with my [G]dar[D]lin' [A]so [D]sweet

        Well it [D]must be the [D7]fault of the [G]Tennessee [D]Waltz
        Wish I'd known just how [Bm]much it would [E]cost  [A]
        But I [D]didn't see it commin', it's all [D7]over but the [G]cryin'
        Blame it [D]all on the [G]Ten[D]nes[A]see [D]Waltz

(solo, same as a verse)

New second verse written by Cohen

        She goes [D]dancin' with the darkness to the [D7]Tennessee [G]Waltz
        and I [D]feel like I'm [Bm]falling a[E]part   [A]
        and it's [D]stronger than drink and it's [D7]deeper than [G]sorrow
        this [D]darkness she [G]left [D]in [A]my [D]heart

I remember the night ... (CHORUS 1)

That beautiful Tennessee Waltz
