Dance With My Father

	  
Intro:  D     A/C#    Bm    G    G 

D                          A/C#   G                           G/A    A 
Back when I was a child,  before life removed all the innocense   
D                       A/C#                G                             G/A             A 
My father would lift me high,  and dance with my mother and me and then   
D/F#                         G               Gm/Bb                                  D/A   
Spin me around till I fell  asleep,   then up the stairs he would carry me   
         E/G#                       Asus  A  
And I knew for sure I was loved   
    
  D                 A/C#                   Bm                   G   
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him   
Em                                   Bm   
I'd play a song that would never ever end               reintro: 
            G                         Asus                A             D      A/C#    Bm    G 
How I'd love love love, to dance with my father again   

When I and my mother would dissagree   
To get my way I would run from her to him   
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me   
Then finally make me do just what my mama said   
Later that night when I was asleep   
He left a dollar under my sheet   
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me   
   
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him   
I'd play a song that would never ever end   
Cause I'd love love love to dance with my father again   

G                                   A 
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door 
D                                  A/C#  Bm 
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him  
G                                Asus          A    Em                              Asus             A 
I prayed for her even more than me,  I prayed for her even more than me  

(Re-intro)   D     A/C#    Bm    G   (then modulate up a whole step) 

I know I'm praying for much to much, But could you send back  
The only man she loved, I know you don't do it usually 
              A                            Bsus                B          C#m   F#m 
But dear lord she's dying, to dance with my father again  
C13b5                                                                   E    B/D#   A   Bsus  B  E 
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream.
