Tennessee Waltz for my friend Jeanie. She requested it a long time ago but I hadn’t played it since she wanted me to sing it. HUM Surprisingly for such a simple song it has a bit more range in it than I have. I gave it a try and I realize that I am not a singer, but will entertain when I can. So for the sake of entertaining my friend, I did Tennessee Waltz for her. It is a very pretty song and very sad! “Tennessee Waltz” is a popular country music song with lyrics by Redd Stewart and music by Pee Wee King written in 1946 and first released in January 1948. The song became a multimillion seller via a 1950 recording – as “The Tennessee Waltz” – by Patti Page.
