Brand New Tennessee Waltz (Jesse Winchester) C Oh my, but you have a pretty face F C You favor a girl that I knew F C Am I imagine that she's still in Tennessee C G7 C And by God I should be there too C G7 C I've a sadness too sad to be true. But I left Tennessee in a hurry, dear The same way that I'm leaving you 'cause love is mainly just memories And everyone's got him a few So when I'm gone I'll be glad to love you. (Chorus) F C At the brand new Tennessee waltz G7 You're literally waltzing on air F C At the brand new Tennessee waltz G7 C There ain't no tellin' 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 I'm trapped while I'm putting on airs And getting even by asking "Who cares?" So have all of 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 'cause they'll catch you wherever you're hid.
