Tennessee Waltz – Redd Stewart, is a popular country music song with lyrics by Redd Stewart and music by Pee Wee King written in 1946 and first released in January 1948. The song became a multimillion seller via a 1950 recording – as “The Tennessee Waltz” – by Patti Page. As of 1974, it was the biggest-selling song ever in Japan.

All versions of the lyrics narrate a situation in which the persona has introduced his or her sweetheart to a friend who then waltzes away with her or him. The lyrics are altered for pronoun gender on the basis of the gender of the singer.

The popularity of “Tennessee Waltz” also made it the fourth official song of the state of Tennessee in 1965.

A considerable amount of time passed before Pee Wee King’s Golden West Cowboys were able to record “Tennessee Waltz.” Their recording was made in a December 2, 1947 session at the RCA Victor Studio in Chicago. Its release as Victor (20–2680) was noted the following month.

Tennessee Waltz – Redd Stewart lyrics

I was walzin
With my darlin
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see!
I Introduced him
To my loved one
And while they were walzin
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 darlin
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz!

I remember the night
And the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my
Little darlin
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz!

The beautiful Tennessee Waltz!
