"The Brand New Tennessee Waltz" lyrics - MATTHEWS' SOUTHERN COMFORT

"The Brand New Tennessee Waltz"

Oh, my but she had a pretty face
The favorite girl that I knew
I imagine that she's still in Tennessee
By God I should be there too
I've a sadness too sad to be true

But I left Tennessee in a hurry here
The same way that I'm leaving you
Because love is just mainly memories
And everyone's got one of you
So when I'm gone I'll be glad to love you

At the brand new Tennessee Waltz
You're literally waltzing on air
At the brand new Tennessee Waltz
There's no telling who'll be there

When I leave it'll be like I found you love
Descending Victorian stairs
And I'm feeling right proud of your photograph
Took while I'm putting on airs
And the reason I'm asking, who cares?

At the brand new...

So have all of your passionate violins
Play a tune for a Tennessee kid
Who's thinking of leaving another town
With no place to go if he did
And they'll catch you wherever you're hid

At the brand new...
