[Intro]

F F C C Dm Dm Gb Gb


[Verse 1]

F F C C Dm Dm C C F F
Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
F F Am Am Gb Gb C C F F
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
F F Gb Gb
Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
F F
Then up the stairs he would carry me
F F
And I knew for sure I was loved
F F Am Am Dm Dm Gb Gb
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
F F Dm Dm
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
F F
How I'd love, love, love
C C F F
To dance with my father again


[Instrumental]

F F C C Dm Dm Gb Gb


[Verse 2]

F F C C
When I and my mother would disagree
Dm Dm C C F F
To get my way, I would run from her to him
F F Am Am
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Gb Gb C C F F
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
F F Gb Gb
Later that night when I was asleep
F F
He left a dollar under my sheet
F F C C
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
F F Am Am Dm Dm Gb Gb
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
F F Dm Dm
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
F F
'Cause I'd love, love, love
C C F F
To dance with my father again
Gb Gb C C
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
F F Dm Dm
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
Gb Gb C C
I pray for her even more than me
Gb Gb C C
I pray for her even more than me


[Instrumental]

F F C C Dm Dm Gb Gb

**Change in key from Bb Bb to C C!


[Verse 3]

F F D D
I know I'm praying for much too much
Em Em C C
But could you send back the only man she loved
Am Am Em Em
I know you don't do it usually
Am Am
But dear Lord she's dying
D D F F
To dance with my father again
Am Am
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream


[Outro]

F F D D Em Em C C F F
