Tennessee Waltz

Desde que la escuché por primera vez Tennessee Waltz ha sido una de mis canciones predilectas. Fue compuesta por Redd Stewart y Pee Wee King en 1947, y popularizada por Patti Page pocos años después, quien obtuvo con ella un éxito notable, hasta el punto de que se la identifica con ella.

Patti Page - 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

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


Desde entonces han sido muchos los artistas que la han versionado, desde Petula Clark a Tom Jones, pasando por Sam Cook y Otis Redding, y casi siempre suena de forma maravillosa.
