Come Dancing.
The Kinks.
Album: State Of Confusion.

Great song, odd in parts,
changed the play out to the
intro. If you want to stay
to the original replace G with 
Em then play D# A# to finish.

Intro: G D G D G D
     G                      D
They put a parking lot on a piece of land,
D                     G
Where the supermarket used to stand,
G                         C
Before that they put up a bowling alley,
On the site that used to be the local Palais,
C                                  G
That's where the big bands used to come and play,
   D                      G
My sister went there on a Saturday.

Come dancing,
C                          G
All her boyfriends used to come and call,
             D             C        G   D
Why not come dancing, it's only natural?
G                 D
Another Saturday, another date.
D                                   G
She would be ready but she's always make him wait,
In the hallway, in anticipation,
D                                        D7   C
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration,
C                           G                 D
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week,
D                      G
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.

Come dancing,
C                          G
That's how they used to do it,
When I was just a kid,
G                       D           C      Em     G   D G D
And when they said come dancing, my sister always did,

   Em                 D          C
My sister should have come in at midnight,
       Em                          C
And my mum would always sit up and wait,
   Em           D       C
It always ended up in a big row,
Em                         D    C    G
When my sister used to get home late.

Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight,
    G                                          D   G
Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate.

    Em       D                  C
The day they knocked down the Palais,
Em        D         C
My sister stood and cried,
    Em                        C     Em
The day they knocked down the Palais,
                D    C          G
Part of my childhood died, just died.

Break: E D C / E D C / E D C / E D C / G D G

G                            D
Now I'm grown up and playing in a band,
D                                G
And there's a car park where the Palais used to stand.
G                           D
My sister's married and she lives on an estate.
D                                  G
Her daughters go out, now it's her turn to wait.
C                            G
She knows they get away with things she never could,
         D7                        G
But if I asked her I wonder if she would,

Come dancing,
Come on sister, have yourself a ball.
G                       D
Don't be afraid to come dancing,
     C        G   D G D G
It's only natural.

Come dancing,
C                    G
Just like the Palais on a Saturday.
G                             D
And all her friends will come dancing
          C                 G      
Where the big bands used to play.
