Note: This pattern just repeats itself, just follow the chord changes and don't be
afraid to variate a little for flavor.

verse:
[G]They put a parking lot on a piece of land
[D]Where the super[G]market used to stand
Before that they put up a bowling [D]alley
On the site that used to be the local [G]pally
[C]That's where the big bands [G]used to come and play
[D]My sister went there [G]on a Saturday

chorus1:
Come [C]dancin'
All her boyfriends [G]used to come and call
Why not come [D]dancin',  it's [C]only natural [G]

verse:
[G]Another Saturday, another date
[D]She would be ready but she'd [G]always make him wait
In the hallway, in antici[D]pation
He didn't know the night would end up in frust[G]ration.
[C]He'd end up blowing all his [G]wages for the week
[D]All for a cuddle and a [G]peck on the cheek

chorus2:
Come [C]dancin'
That's how they did it when [G]I was just a kid
And when they said come [D]dancin', my [C]sister always did [G]

bridge:
My [Em]sister should have [D]come in at [C]midnight
[D]And my [Em]mom would always [D]sit up and [C]wait
[D]It [Em]always ended [D]up in a [C]big brawl
[D]When my [Em]sister used to [D]get home [C]late

Note: Here I just softly tap-brush against the muffled strings in twos,
playing the chords.
[G]Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight
[D]Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate  [G]

The [Em]day they [D]knocked down the [C]pally
[D]My [Em]sister [D]stood and c[C]ried
[D]The [Em]day they [D]knocked down the [C]pally
D Em D C (tacet)
Part of my childhood died, just died.

then: Em D C D x3 (hard strums)

verse:
[G]Now I'm grown up and playing in a band
[D]And there's a car park where the [G]pally used to stand
[C]My sister's married and she [G]lives on an estate
[D]Her daughters go out, now [G]it's her turn to wait
[C]She knows they get away with [G]things she never could
[D]But if I asked her I [G]wonder if she would

chorus3:
Come [C]dancin'
Come on sister, [G]have yourself a ball
Don't be afraid to come [D]dancin', it's [C]only natural [G]
It's [C]only natural [G]

END WITH A QUICK: D G (and maybe add a bit of vibrato to the ending G)
