You can marry another, it's alright with me

Just imagine the treasures I'll bring

And when I return to the one that I miss
              G                                  C                  Em
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
 

PRE-CHORUS
                 G                                            C                Em
When the mornings are warm and the valleys are green

I'll come back from wherever I've been

It's better my darling, I promise you this

But next time I hold you, I'm not letting go

We will give up the ocean forever, I know

Song 2: Tennessee Waltz

Patsy Klein & Leonard Cohen

It's in G

          G                                              G7            C
I was dancin' with my darlin to the Tennessee Waltz
               G                Em                 A       D
When an old friend I happened to see.
    G                                                  G7                       C
I introduced him to my darlin' and while they were dancin'
      G                       C       G       D      G
my friend stole my sweetheart from me.

  G                     G7                    C                G
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
            Em                     A                  D
'cause I know just how much I have lost
         G                                     G7                      C
Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
          G            C   G   D    G
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

          G                                               G7            C
Now I wonder how a dance like the Tennessee Waltz
                   G                 Em               A        D
Could have broken my heart so complete
           G                                                G7                     C
Well I couldn't blame my darlin', and who could help fallin'
     G                    C  G   D  G
In love with my darlin' so sweet

            G                  G7                C               G
Well it must be the fault of the Tennessee Waltz
              Em                      A                      D
Wish I'd known just how much it would cost
         G                                            G7                 C
But I didn't see it commin', it's all over but the cryin'
                G            C  G   D     G
Blame it all on the Tennessee Waltz

                 G                                                    G7            C
She goes dancin' with the darkness to the Tennessee Waltz
          G                Em         A     D
and I feel like I'm falling apart
             G                                           G7                C
and it's stronger than drink and it's deeper than sorrow
        G                   C   G  D    G
this darkness she left in my heart

   G                     G7                    C              G
I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
             Em                    A                  D
'cause I know just how much I have lost
         G                                      G7                    C
Yes I lost my little darlin' the night they were playin'
        G              C  G   D     G
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz
That beautiful Tennessee Waltz

*Verse 1*

G Bm Em      D             G
One night, a long time ago,

Two lovers danced to an old radio.

The Radio Sweethearts are waltzin' still.

Last night I had a dream

         C               G             A7            D
That Mama and Papa had met once again.

There in the glow of heaven's light,

Oh, the Radio Sweethearts waltzed all night.

*Chorus*

Years have passed, the lovers are gone.

      C            G            D
The story is over I'm told.
 D                                        G
But I believe, and I always will,
       C         G                        A7  D    G
The Radio Sweethearts are waltzin' still.

The Radio Sweethearts are waltzin' still.
