Lord of the dance

Sydney Carter

 GDG
     Dance then, wherever you may be
 EmD
     I am the lord of the dance, said he
 GEm
     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be
 DG
     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

 GDEm
I danced in the morning, when the world was begun
 DCD
I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
 GDEm
I came down from heaven and they danced on earth
 DG
I badly had my, had my birth.

 GDEm
I danced for the scribe and the far out sea
 DCD
They wouldn't dance, they wouldn't follow me
 GDEm
So I danced for the fishermen James and John
 DG
came with me and the dance went on.

 GDEm
I danced on the sabbath and cure of the lenght
 DCD
The holy people, they said it was a shame
 GDEm
They whipped and stripped and they hung me high
 DG
Left me there on a cross to die.

 GDEm
I danced on the friday, when the sky turned black
 DCD
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back
 GDEm
They buried my body they thought I got
 DG
But I ad the dance still go on.

 GDEm
They got me down, but I leap up high
 DCD
 I am the light, that will never, never die
 GDEm
And I live in you, if you live in me
 DG
 I am the lord of the dance, said he.
