The raving thoughts of a misanthropic academic

Song of the Week: Tennessee Waltz

My thoughts seem to be oddly turned toward Nashville this week. This afternoon, I stumbled upon an old favorite introduced to me during my erstwhile days at Dartmouth. Norah Jones with her smooth vocals and dexterous piano playing couldn't have performed the rendition of the song any better.

Without further ado the Pax Plena song of the week is none other than Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King's 1947 hit, the Tennessee Waltz as performed by Norah Jones. Lyrics follow. Enjoy!

(Note: The Tennessee Waltz is in no way intended to be confused with the Tennessee Waltz sting operation which sent several top Volunteer State Democrats to prison)



Tennessee Waltz
As Performed by Norah Jones

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

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
And I knew just how much I had lost
I have lost my little darlin'
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
And I knew just how much I had lost
I have lost my little darlin'
The night they were playing
The beautiful beautiful Tennessee Waltz
The Tennessee Waltz
