This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
I was waltz -ing with my dar -lin' to the Ten -nes -see Waltz,
When an old friend I hap -pened to see.
In -tro -duced him to my loved one and while they were waltz -ing,
My friend stole my sweet -heart from me.
I re -mem -ber the night and the Ten -nes -see Waltz,
Now I know just how much I have lost.
Yes, I lost my lit -tle dar -lin' the night they were play -ing
The beau -ti -ful Ten -nes -see Waltz.
