Tennessee Waltz

20170707期

演唱者:Patti Page

I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee waltz,
When an old friend I happened to see.
Introduced her to my loved one,
And while they were dancing,
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.


I remember the night and the Tennessee waltz,
Now I know just how much I have lost.
Yes I lost my little darling,
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee waltz.

田纳西圆舞曲

我和爱人,跳着一支,田纳西圆舞曲,

一位友人她突然光临。

我把爱人,向她介绍,

可当他们跳起舞,

她竟偷走我爱人的心!

我还记得那夜晚,和那田纳西舞,

现在知道我失去了那么多。

对,我失去我的爱人,

就在那晚他们跳起,

迷人的田纳西舞曲。

背景介绍:

《Tennessee Waltz》由美国作曲家金作于1948年, 1950年由流行歌坛的“圆舞曲女王”Patti Page(派蒂·佩姬)录唱后广泛流传。作为美国历史最佳销售单曲之一,它甚至被选定为田纳西州歌,更被许多大牌乡村歌手翻唱,成为乡村代表名曲之一。歌曲讲述了一场伴随着优美的田纳西华尔兹舞曲发生的爱情变故, 吟唱着歌者的幽怨与感伤。虽然讲述的是爱的失落,但圆舞曲的旋律仍不失优美流畅。
