"Walking the Floor Over You" is a country music song written by Ernest Tubb and released in the United States in 1941.[2]

The original version included only Tubb's vocals and acoustic guitar accompanied by "Smitty" Smith on electric guitar. Tubb later re-recorded the song with his band, The Texas Troubadours.[2]

The single became a hit and sold over a million copies. Critic David Vinopal called "Walking the Floor Over You" the first honky tonk song that launched the musical genre itself.[3]
