C Am We skipped the light fandango <--- verse I She said "There is no reason, <--- verse II
F Dm And turned cartwheels across the floor And the truth is plain to see,"
G Em G7 I was feeling kind of seasick But I wandered through my playing cards
C Am Em But the crowd called out for more And would not let her be F Dm The room was humming harder One of sixteen vestal virgins
G Em G7 As the ceiling flew a- way Who were leaving for the coast
C Am Em When we called out for a- nother drink And although my eyes were o- pen
F Dm The waiter brought a tray They might just as well have been closed
G13 C6 Cmaj7 Am C And so it was that later
F Dm As the miller told his tale

G Em That her face at first just ghostly
G7 C F C G7 C (second time) Turned a whiter shade of pale

Some corrections to the chords. I'm writing this from my head so these may be a bit off, too, but certainly closer. My chart says it's in C but I think I never did actually check it, so I'll stay in G.

and so on
