Leonard Cohen Tennessee Waltz (live) Lyrics

I was dancing with my darlin'
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced him to my darling
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
'Cause I know just how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darlin'
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
'Cause I know just how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darlin'
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

She comes dancing through the darkness
To the Tennessee Waltz
And I feel like I'm falling apart
And it's stronger than drink
And it's deeper than sorrow
This darkness she's left in my heart

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
'Cause I know just how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darlin'
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

Beautiful Tennessee Waltz
