The First Step (Alternate version)
Recorded by Tracy Byrd
CAPO 2nd FRET
NOTE 1: matellmon deserves FULL credit for this. All I did was add a capo and transpose his chords.
NOTE 2: In the chorus where it goes E-F-F#-G and where it goes G-G#-A I use all bar chords.
See the diagrams for G and A as bar chords.
Verse1: A D
The lights were hot and the beer was not and the band was playin loud
the [A]house was full but her eyes pulled me [D]right across the crowd
I said "[G]How's a guy like me, to get to[D] know you?"
[G]she said "Not so fast, let me[A] show you"
Chorus: D E F F# G
She said the first step... is the two-step
[D]I'm here to dance, nothing more, swing me round that [G]hard[G#]wood [A]floor
[D]if you want to run with me, [G]crawl before you walk
the [D]first step is the [A]two-step then we'll [D]talk
Verse2: A D
We sang along with every song & the room was spinning round
we [A]danced in line she felt so fine & we [D]hardly touched the ground
so I said [G]maybe we could make a rese[D]rvation
for some [G]wine with candlelight and co[A]nversation
Outro: A D
well first things first let's two-step then we'll talk
