I think the question was this:  

	In the song we all know as "The Tennessee 
	Waltz," the lyrics refer to "dancing with 
	my darling to the Tennessee Waltz."  Was 
	there another, earlier song by the same 
	title, to which the lyrics refer?

It's always my understanding that this was the only "Tennessee
Waltz," and that its lyrics refer to itself.  

Perhaps it's sort of like the pop song, "You're So Vain," which
says, "You're so vain, you prob'ly think this song is about you."
