Ever since my great uncle told me (multiple times – he was losing his mind) at a family event that the Tennessee Waltz was his favorite song, I’ve felt a fondness for this tune. I first discovered Sam Cooke’s version and rocked to that for years – even though it’s very far removed from a “waltz” feel.
Just recently one of my students requested this tune as done by Bonnie Raitt and Norah Jones. This version is slow and waltz-y. A very pretty tune that fits well on the ‘ukulele.
Strum it or pick the melody or try putting the two together. Just remember to count in 3 instead of 4! The sheet is in the key of F – different than Bonnie’s version.
