Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Lord of the dance  Unknown

     D[G]ance then, wher[D]ever you may b[G]e
     [Em]I am the lord of the d[D]ance, said he
     And I'll l[G]ead you all, wher[Em]ever you may be
     And I'll l[D]ead you all in the d[G]ance, said he.

I d[G]anced in the morning, when the w[D]orld was beg[Em]un
I d[D]anced in the moon and the st[C]ars and the s[D]un
I c[G]ame down from heaven and I d[D]anced on [Em]earth
In Bethlehem I had my birth.

I d[G]anced for the scribe and the Phaarisee [Em]ea
But they w[D]ould not dance, they w[C]ouldn't follow m[D]e
 I d[G]anced for the fishermen, for J[D]ames and J[Em]ohn
They c[D]ame with me and the d[G]ance went on.

I d[G]anced on the sabbath and c[D]ure of the l[Em]enght
The h[D]oly people, they s[C]aid it was a sh[D]ame
They wh[G]ipped and stripped and they h[D]ung me h[Em]igh
L[D]eft me there on a cr[G]oss to die.
I d[G]anced on a friday, when the sk[D]y turned bl[Em]ack
It's h[D]ard to dance with the d[C]evil on your b[D]ack
They whipped me and stripped me and they hung me high
But [D]I am the dance and I st[G]ill go on.

They cutme down, but I l[D]eapt up h[Em]igh
[D]I am the life, that will n[C]ever, never d[D]ie
I'll live in you  if you l[D]ive in m[Em]e
[D]I am the lord of the d[G]ance, said he.
