I was dancing with my darling to the
Tennessee Waltz when an old friend I happened to see
I introduced him to my loved one and
while they were dancing my friend stole my sweetheart from me.
I remember the night of the Tennessee
Waltz only you know how much I have lost
For I lost my little darling on the
night they were playing the beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

Bhíos ag damhsa le mo ghrá
geal ag an Waltz Tennessee nuair a bhuail mé le sheanchara bhréag.
Chuir mé i n-aithne é do mo stóirín
's nuair a bhíodar ag damhsa tóg mo chara mo chailín
Is cuimhin liom an oiche úd is
an waltz Tennessee tá 's agatsa cé mhéid a chaill mé
Toisc gur chaill mé mo
stóirín an oiche a
sheinnt siad an port sin brea
