For A Dancer  Jackson Browne


[F]G  [-]-  [133211]3x0003  or  320033
Am - x02210
C7 - x32310

[C]  Keep a fire burning [F]in your eye
[C]  Pay attention to the [F]open sky
[C]  You never know what [F]will be coming down  [C]     [G]

[C]  I don't remember losing [F]track of you
[C]  You were always dancing in and [F]out of view
[C]  I must've thought you'd [F]always be around  [C]     [G]
[Am]  Always keeping things [F]real by playing the clown [C]
  Now you're [G]nowhere to be found
[C]    [F]    [C]    [G]                        
[C]  I don't know what happens when [F]people die
[C]  Can't seem to grasp it as hard [F]as I try
[F]  It's like a [C]song I can hear playing [F]right in my ear
  That I can't [C]sing  -  I can't help [G]listening
[C]  And I can't help feeling stupid [F]standing 'round
[C]  Crying as they [F]ease you down
[C]  'Cause I know that you'd [F]rather we were dancing [C]
[G]  Dancing our sorrow away [Am]
[F]  Right on dancing
        [C]  No matter what fat[G]e chooses to play
  There's nothing you can do about it [C]anyway
  Just [F]do the steps that [C]you've been shown
  By [F]everyone you've [C]ever known   [G]
[Am] Until the dance become[C7]s your very own
[F]  No matter how [G]close to yours
[Am]  Another's steps have grown  [F]
  In the [C]end there is one [G]dance you'll do alone
[C]    [F]    [C]    [G]                        
Keep a fire for the human race
Let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know what will be coming down
Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found

[Am]  Don't let the [F]uncertainty turn you [C]around

The world keeps turning around and around
  Go [G]on and make a joyful sound [C]

  In[F]to a dancer [C]you have grown
  From a [F]seed somebody [C]else has thrown [G]
[Am]  Go on ahead and throw[C7] some seeds of your own [F]
[F]  And somewhere between[G] the time you arrive [Am]
  And the time you go [F]
  May lie the [C]reason you were alive [G]

But you'll never know

[C]    [F]    [C]    [G]    [C]    [G]    [C]
