Tennessee Waltz (Live at Montreux Jazz Festival)

Leonard Cohen

Was dancing with my darlin'
To the tennessee waltz
When an old friend i happened to see
Introduced him to my loved one
And while they were waltzing
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.
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.
