Mary Chapin Carpenter - Slow Country Dance


     -----(capo 2nd fret)-----
 
Intro - C - D - G - G


(verse 1)
G          C         G           D
Out on the floor the couples are swaying,
    G         C            G         D
To One Faded Love on the jukebox tonight,
    Em7           C             G             D
You slide in your coins and the music keeps playing,
  G            C          D        G
A slow country dance on a Saturday night,
 

(verse 2) 
G              C        G           D
Sweethearts in love and others just lonely,
G             C          G            D
Searching for someone to waltz with tonight,
     Em7       C       G              D
In a smoky old bar you know that it's only,
  G            C          D        G     
A slow country dance on a Saturday night,


(chorus) 
    F            C       G       D
And love's never easy or ever as true,
         F           C           G         D 
When the changing of partners is no longer new,
    G              C          G            D
You lead with your heart, and closing your eyes,
G             C        D             G
Dance just to dance in three quarter time,


(lead - G - C - D - G)


(verse 3) 
Down at the bar a woman tells stories
Batting her eyes to someone not there
Her glass is half full or maybe half empty
Like the jokes told about her when they think she can't hear
 
(verse 4)
Now the perfume is cheap and the makeup is careless
And the dress out of fashion for a woman her age
But she don't give a damn for those who would cherish
A much lighter step and a much younger face
 

(chorus) 
    F            C       G       D
And love's never easy or ever as true,
         F           C           G         D
When the changing of partners is no longer new,
    G              C          G            D
You lead with your heart, and closing your eyes,
G             C        D             G
Dance just to dance in three quarter time,
 


(lead - G - C - G - D - G - C - G - D)
     Em7 - C - G - D - G - C - D  - G)


(ending verse )
G          C         G           D
Out on the floor the couples are swaying,
    G         C            D         G
To One Faded Love on the jukebox tonight,
