I was dancing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darling the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

I was dancing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darling the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

    General CommentWell, first off, if someone can steal your darlin' from you with just ONE DANCE, I'm thinking that the relationship was on fairly shaky ground to begin with... not to mention the fact that you're not very good at picking your friends!

    And then we have to ask: what could have happened during that one dance? What does the darlin' find out about the old friend? My guess is that some kind of prominent physical characteristics must have come into play out there on the dance floor - either that, or the conversation hinged on questions of net worth.
