The Brand New Tennessee Waltz

Performer: Jesse Winchester
[G]    [D]    [A7]    [D]    
[D]Oh my, but you have a pretty face,
you [G]favor I girl that I [D]knew
I i[G]magine that she's back in [D]Tennessee,
and by [A]God, I should be there [D]too;
I've a [A7]sadness too sad to be [D]true

But I [D]left Tennessee in a hurry dear,
in [G]same way that I'm leaving [D]you  
Because [G]love is mainly just [D]memories, you see,
and [A]everyone's got him a [D]few;
so when I'm gone I'll be [A7]glad to love [D]you  

At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
you're literally waltzing on [A]air  
At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
there's no telling [A7]who will be [D]there

When I [D]leave it will be like I found you love,
de[G]scending Victorian [D]stairs
And I'm [G]feeling like one of your old [D]photographs, girl,
where I’m [A]trapped while I'm putting on [D]airs;
so I’ll get [A7]even by saying “who [D]cares”?

At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
you're literally waltzing on [A]air  
At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
there's just no telling [A7]who will be [D]there


So [D]have all of your passionate violins,
play a [G]tune for a Tennessee [D]kid  
Who's [G]feeling like leaving a[D]nother town,
but with [A]no place to go if he [D]did;
cause they'll [A7]catch you wherever you're [D]hid  

At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
you're literally waltzing on [A]air  
At the [G]Brand New [D]Tennessee Waltz,
there's just no telling [A7]who will be [D]there

[D]    [G]    [D]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [D]    [A7]    [D]    


Oh my, but you have a pretty face,
you favor I girl that I knew
I imagine that she's back in Tennessee,
and by God, I should be there too;
I've a sadness too sad to be true

But I left Tennessee in a hurry dear,
in same way that I'm leaving you
Because love is mainly just memories, you see,
and everyone's got him a few;
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 will be there

When I leave it will be like I found you love,
descending Victorian stairs
And I'm feeling like one of your old photographs, girl,
where I’m trapped while I'm putting on airs;
so I’ll get even by saying “who cares”?

At the Brand New Tennessee Waltz,
you're literally waltzing on air
At the Brand New Tennessee Waltz,
there's just no telling who will be there

So have all of your passionate violins,
play a tune for a Tennessee kid
Who's feeling like leaving another town,
but with no place to go if he did;
cause they'll catch you wherever you're hid

At the Brand New Tennessee Waltz,
you're literally waltzing on air
At the Brand New Tennessee Waltz,
there's just no telling who will be there
