Artist: Creed
Song Name: Don't Stop Dancing
Album:  Weathered
Tuning:  DADADD

Submitted by David A


The tabs for this song, on this site, are in Standard tuning.  This is wrong.  
Creed played at the Cowboys halftime show over thanksgiving and they played Higher, 
My Sacrifice, and this song (Don't Stop Dancing).  My Sacrifice is played in DADADD and 
it is easier to play Higher in that tuning.  Mark did not switch guitars so I assumed 
that all the songs were tuned this way and they are.

  "At times life is wicked and I just can't see the light"

Soft chorus:
Same as regular chorus but without distortion

Outro:
Same as verse  


Lyrics:
At times life is wicked and I just can't see the light
A silver lining sometimes isn't enough to make some wrong
Seem right
Whatever life brings, I've been through everything and now I'm on my knees

Pre-Chorus:
But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many feel this way

Chorus:
Children, don't stop dancing
Believe, you can fly
Away, Away

At times life's unfair and you know it's plain to see
Hey God I know I'm just a dot in this world
Have you forgot about me
Whatever life brings, I've been through everything and now I'm on my knees

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Am I hiding in the shadows
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows
Am I hiding in the shadows
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows

Pre-chorus

Soft Chorus

Chorus 
Chorus

Outro:
Am I hiding in the shadows
Are we hiding in the shadows


Creed rocks!

Actually Higher is in Drop-D, I have the songbook, but I think he played it a certain way in Open-d at the concert since he didn't switch guitars.
This tab is just perfect though, great job!!!(by the way, It's Scott's sister that sings in this song with him.)

Ah, but Tremonti used drop d tuning in the halftime show. He played My Sacrifice differently cuz Higher was in Drop D. He stayed away from the low D in Don't Stop Dancing.
