The Last Dance


Am G   Am Em   Am G Fmaj7 G 
Am G   Am Em   Am G Fmaj7 G 

  Am            G             Am        Em 
I met a sad old gypsy on the road to Berlin 
     Am              G            Fmaj7         G 
By chance I got to spend a little time with him 
 Am                 G             Am         Em 
Shared a few life stories on that dusty old train 
       Am               Em 
So I thought I'd take a minute 
         Fmaj7       G        Am   
Just to share them again with you 

Am G   Am Em   Am G Fmaj7 G 
Am G   Am Em   Am G Fmaj7 G 

    Am                 G                   Am        Em 
He talked of all the twists and turns he'd taken in life 
    Am               G            Fmaj7         G 
And how his spirit clung to God to do what was right 
 Am               G                 Am          Em            
Sure he got the prize but he never counted the cost 
 Am                   Em 
Felt his pain as he shared with me  
Fmaj7         G       Am 
     All that he had lost 

Am G   Am Em   Am G Fmaj7 G 

   Am              G            Am           Em 
If you could only see what was there in his eyes 
    Am          G            Fmaj7          G 
An eternity of wandering in search of the prize 
     Am               G              Am         Em 
He'd had it all, the money, all the fame and romance 
Am             G          C    G           Am 
Now he shed a tear as he faced   the last dance 

The blessing comes but once he said 
But it's not for you, it must be shared 
And if you keep it to yourself 
You'll be no use to anyone else 
And he who gives will take away 
And you will face the same dark day 
That even now is all my pain 
C                      E      Am 
 I'll never have this dance again 

  C       G           Dm                C 
Chances, dances, how quickly this life passes 
Am                 F 
All our hopes and all our dreams 
Get lost in all our selfish schemes 
               C                   G 
You see, it's not about you, it's not about me 
       Dm                   C 
It's about loving something we can't see 
     Am                     F 
It's all about what we are willing to share 
       E                              F 
It's about our hearts and who lives there 

F   Am   Dm   F   Gm   F   Gm   C 
A Bb C C#  


Dm  G   Bbm F  Dm  G  Bbm  C   
F   Am  Dm  F  Gm  F  Gm   C

F   G   Fm  Bb F   G  Ab   Bb  F  G

        Cm                    Bb 
As the train rolled into the city 
              Cm           Bb 
He shook his head as if to say 
      Cm                  Bb 
It's your turn now, just know the game 
      Ab              Bb  
That you're about to play 
         Cm                Bb 
And it seemed as if right there and then 
   Cm                Bb   
A light came to his eyes 
   Cm                Bb 
As he exchanged the dance of life 
      Ab          Bb 
For a far better prize  

    Dm                 C            Dm      C 
And so the tired old gypsy drifted slowly away 
 Dm            C                  Bb       C 
Beaten by the game he'd taught so many to play 
    Dm              C          Dm           C 
He said "I'd do it all again if I had the chance" 
         Dm            C 
But I'm ready now for one more bow 
      Bb  C          Bb 
I'll take  the last dance 

Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  Bb  C 
Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  Bb  C 
Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  Bb  C 
Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  Bb  C 
Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  Bb  C  
Dm  C  Dm  C   Dm  C  D
