Brand New Tennessee Waltz

print

Oh you have such a pretty face
You favor a girl I once knew
I imagine that she’s in Tennessee
Oh Lord I should be there too.

But I left Tennessee in a hurry dear
The same way that I’m leaving you
For love is mainly just memories
And everyone’s got them but few.

   It’s a brand new Tennessee waltz
   You’re literally just waltzing on air
   It’s a brand new Tennessee waltz
   With no telling who will be there

When I leave it’ll be like I found you love
Descending victorian stairs
I’m feeling like one of your photographs
With not even you left to care.

Have all your passionate violins play
A tune for a Tennessee kid
Who’s feeling like leaving another town
With no place to go if he did.
