Dance With My Father  Luther Vandross

Four Semitones Above Original
Intro: D A/C# Bm GMaj9
Verse 1
[D] [A/C#] [G]  
Bac[A]k when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
[D] [A/C#] [G] 
M[A]y father would lift me high, And dance with my mother and me and then
[D/F#] [G] [Gm/Bb]  
Spin me[D/A] around till I fell asleep, Then up the stairs he would carry me,
[E/G#]and I knew for sure I was lov[Asus4]ed[A]
[D]If I could get, [A/C#]another chance, a[Bm]nother walk, [G]another dance with him
[Em]I'd play a song that would n[Bm]ever, ever end. How I'd lo[G]ve, love love, to
Asus4 A D...
dance with my father again.
...D A/C# Bm GMaj9
( Tab from: )
[D] [A/C#] [G]  
Whe[A]n I and my mother would disagree, to get my way I'd run from her to him
D A/C# G He'D make me
just to comfort me, yeah yeah, and finally make me do
just what [Asus4]my mama[A] said
[D/F#] [G] [Gm/Bb]  
Later t[D/A]hat night when I was asleep, he left a dollar under my sheet
Never drea[E/G#]med that he would be gon[Em]e fro[Asus4]m me[A]
[G]Sometimes I'd listen outsid[A]e her door,[D] and I'd hear how my mo[A/C#]ther
crie[Bm]d for him.
[G] [Asus4] [A] [Em7]  
I'd pray[Asus4] for her even more than me, I'd pray for her even more than me
[A] [Asus2] [D] [A/C#] [Bm9] [Gmaj7]  
Chorus with key-change (Up a tone)
[E] [B/D#] [C#m9] 
I kn[A]ow I'm praying for much too much, but could you send back the only man she loved?
[F#m7] [C#m9] [Amaj9] 
I kno[B]w you don't do it usually, but lord she's dying to dance with my
father[Em9] again
[F#m7] E[Am6]very night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dre[E]am
