Misc Unsigned Bands — Connie Francis - The Tennessee Waltz Chords

  Rate this tab:
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.)  
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. 

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. 
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. 
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. 
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.
