Tennessee Waltz Lyrics

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

James Scott Bio :

James Scott is a Solo Fingerstyle Steel-String Guitarist, Flat-Picker, Composer and Songwriter. His music showcases his love for the West Coast’s Windham Hill Recordsinnovation in solo fingerstyle composition, his love for Bluegrass icon Tony Rice’s rhythmic cross-picking, and the authenticity, and sincerity, of John Hartford’s approach to songwriting.

Though his love of the guitar began at the age of 13, it didn’t truly began to take hold until after studying with Nashville based Jazz-Fusion-Classical Guitarist Stan Lassiter. That is when he saw the true potential of the instrument, the sonic and emotional depth the instrument had to offer. James Scott reflects, “My Dad is the one that turned me onto Stan Lassiter as well as Windham Hill Records, which is the label that gave the world Alex DeGrassi, Michael Hedges and Will Ackerman, some of my biggest influences for being a composer for the guitar. Windham Hill Records, and Stan Lassiter, more or less set me on the path I am on today.”

Having a background in Jazz, Bluegrass, Folk, Traditional, Americana and Celtic music, James Scott has been working towards synthesizing elements of each of these musics into his own personal vision. That vision is directed by his spiritual pursuit that largely originates from his connection to the power of vibration, and nature.
