Scarlet Fever  Kenny Rogers

By Kenny Rogers
rmofle at
I [D]stood outside the Lucky Star staring at the flashing sign
It read, [G]Come on in and watch young Scarlet’s [D]body come alive
Let her [G]dance for you and [A]cast her spell, you’ll [D]swear you can’t be[G]lieve her
Be [G]careful not to catch the scarlet [A]fever
So I [D]paid my fare and walked down front and found an empty chair
As I [G]settled in young scarlet took the [D]ribbons from her hair
The moves her [G]body made while the [A]music played were the [D]likes I’ve never [G]seen
And [G]she became the [A]envy of my [D]dreams
One by one her teasing movements brought the crowd out of their seats
And all at once young scarlet danced straight up in front of me
Scarlet locked another heart upon her chain.
Now I get scarlet [G]fev[A]er every time I [D]see her[G]
[G]But she’s a night club t[Em]easer
[A]Not paid to notice [D]me
Yes, I get scarlet [G]fever[A]
If she knew how much I [D]need her
[G]She´d place her hand in [Em]my hand
And [A]dance away with [D]me
She looked 25 but I was told that she was just 16
She had a way of making a man believe she danced for only him
As she tantalized I fantasized and felt the sound of my heart beat
And every night I’d dream she’d fall in love with me
Then one night while driving in my eyes begun to tear
Cause the sign outside the Lucky Star said, Scarlet isn’t here
She’d left that day to find a life of bigger and better things
And she left behind my chain of broken dreams
Chorus 2:
But I still get scarlet fever
In my mind I still see her
Out there dancing somewhere
To another fool like me
Chorus 1
