Dance Hall Girls

	  		                 C     G                   C 
These dance hall girls,  they'll treat you kind 
C                                  F                        C 
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds 
        F        C   F              Em   F 
They'll fill you up,  with lipstick lies 
F                      C   
Then they'll put you down son 
G            Am    D 
Don't be surprised 
D           C             G                F    C  G  C 
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore? 
C                    G             C 
I held her mountains, I kissed her plains 
C                       F                     C 
I touched her sunshine, Lord then I drank her rains 
      F        C   F            Em   F 
But I went too far, I broke too fast 
F                  C 
I thought I had a winner picked 
G             Am     D 
But I came in last, again 
D           C             G                F    C  G  C 
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore? 
***Refrain: 
Em                           F              C 
I must have chosen the wrong season to come down 
Em                    F                G 
I never realized they call this sacred ground 
G           C     G                  C    
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind 
C                    F                    C 
I sent a letter home,  but this all takes time you know 
        F        C     F                 Em   F 
I gotta get some money,  I wanna go back home 
F                    C 
But these dance hall girls 
C           G               Am    D 
Know how to make a man feel alone 
D           C             G                F    C  G  C 
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore? 
 
***Solo Plays through one verse 
**play refrian 
G           C     G                  C 
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind C                                  F                        C 
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds 
        F        C   F              Em   F 
They'll fill you up,  with lipstick lies 
F                C 
These dance hall girls say 
     G                    Am         D 
They can't stand to see a grown man cry 
D           C             G               F 
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore? 
F           C             G               F 
Is this the way it always is here in Montreal? 
F           C             G               F     C  G 
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore? 
F  C  G    F  C  G  C
