Dance With My Father

Luther Vandross

 BbFGmFBb
 Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence   
 BbDmEbFBb
 My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then 
 BbEb
 Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
 CmBb
 Then up the stairs he would carry me
 CmF
 And I knew for sure I was loved

 BbDmGmEb
 If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
 CmGm
 I'd play a song that would never, ever end
 Cm
 How I'd love, love, love
 FBb
 To dance with my father again

 BbFGmEb
 BbF
 When I and my mother would disagree
 GmFBb
 To get my way, I would run from her to him
 BbDm
 He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
 EbFBb
 Then finally make me do just what my mama said 
 BbEb
 Later that night when I was asleep
 CmBb
 He left a dollar under my sheet
 CmF
 Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
 BbDmGmEb
 If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
 CmGm
 I'd play a song that would never, ever end
 Cm
 'Cause I'd love, love, love
 FBb
 To dance with my father again
 EbF
 Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
 BbGm
 And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
 EbF
 I pray for her even more than me
 EbF
 I pray for her even more than me

 BbFGmEb
!!!!!Change in key from Bb to C!!!!!

 CG
 I know I'm praying for much too much
 AmF
 But could you send back the only man she loved
 DmAm
 I know you don't do it usually
 Dm
 But dear Lord she's dying
 GC
 To dance with my father again
 Dm
 Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

 CGAmFC
