THE DANCE
WORDS AND MUSIC BY: TONY ARATA

KEYBOARD: Em,C,Dsus6(OR USE THE TAB ALREADY LISTED)
INTRO: G, C/G, G, C/G, D,C/G,G


                         C
Looking back on the memory of 
        D                           G      D
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above 
         G                  C
For a moment all the world was right 
            D                      Em             D/F#
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye 
     C                        D
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
                      Bm7                      C   D
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
           C                    D                           Bm7
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
                    C   D      G C/G,G, C/G, D, G
But I'd of had to miss the dance 

                    C
Holding you I held everything 
           D             G     D
For a moment wasn't I a king 
             G                     C
But if I'd only known how the king would fall 
        D                        Em             D/F#
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all 
       C
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
   D                   Bm7                      C D
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
            C                     D                           Bm7
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
                   C    D       G
But I'd of had to miss the dance 


         C                          D
Yes my life is better left to chance 
                          Bm7                   C    D     N.C.
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

KEY BOARD OUTRO: PICKED SLOWLY

What you call a Dsus6 is close, it's actually a Dsus4, where the
third of the chord is raised a half-step. (notes D-G-A for a Dsus4
chord). Adding a 6th onto a chord doesn't create a "suspension," it
just becomes a 6 chord so you would call it a D6. WHEW was that
complicated enough? lol
-airmanjerm | 2/21/2003
actually, if the fingering is 2nd fret G string and 3rd fret B string,
and the rest open, then the chord is Dsus2.

A Dsus4 would be accomplished by adding the pinky on to the 3rd fret
high E (most common fingering) of a standard D chord.

If the fingering listed is 2nd fret D string and 3rd fret A string,
then the chord is Cmaj7 - I wasn't sure how you were labeling the
strings in the 000230 diagram.

hope this helps.

-AcousticCowboy1 | 1/6/2004
the chord you didn't know in the song is called a dsus2, dsus4 is xx0233.
-jaradhanas | 4/12/2004
all chords are based off of scales. in most
major chords you play the root, the third, the fifth, and the octive.
The D scale is:
D-E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D.
so when you play a D chord you are playin x-x-0-2-3-2
D A D F#
D-Root
A-5th
D-octive (same chord one octive higher)
F#-3rd

By placing your middle finger on the second
fret on the high E string you are playin the
3rd (third chord in the scale), F# which makes it a major chord. By releasing that finger and playin an open (E) you are
now playin the second chord in the scale, so
you are playin a Dsus2 (xx0230). By placing
your pinkey finger on the third fret of the
high E string you know play a G on that
string. G is the 4th chord in the D-scale,
so now you are playin a Dsus4 (xx0233).

Lovely song and in my opinion the very best of Garth. I don't know why this song tears me up. Good power chords too.
