Capo 5th fret ( chords relative to capo )

G  C  G  Em  Em

           G			C	G
On a warm night in March on a dark disco floor
      Em
I danced up a storm like I’d never before
            C			D	   G
Every step in the book and then some that weren’t listed
Am					 Em 		D
For a song or two I felt nothing else existed

G					C   	G
Now if a dream curled at your feet you’d take it home and name it
          Em
I’m struggling now to find something to blame it on
C	       D		  G
Strobing effects or perhaps it was that dress
Am					Em		D
But my eye was captured by a beautiful actress

		G		C		G
Now the minutiae’s still my memory writ large
Em 
As she danced nearer me with her coy entourage
C			D			G
She tugged at the scarf round her neck it came loose
Am				   C   		G		G
She flung it and hung it from the disc jockey’s booth

      C		D	  Em	    C
But before I continue one moments reprieve
C					G 
I grant you dear audience a chance to leave
	C	   D           Em	  C
For my tale never ends in that it never started
C					D 
When the house lights came on I’d already departed

G			           C	G
No not one word was spoken nor a glance exchanged 
	Em
When the sun rose next morning the world hadn’t changed
	C		D	    G 
See we only touched elbows is the plain naked truth
Am			      C	         G 			G
And I can’t even back up my story with proof

Gm				  C		G
We only touched elbows, felt our bones clunk together
Em
Then the moment was over in a falling feather
C	      D		G
An accident sure but it happened I’ll wrangle
Am			                Em      Em   Em  D
Our elbows did touch our arms at right angles

		G			C	G
Now there’s naught the nosey observer could’ve guessed
 Em
But the rock and roll drummer inside of my chest
C			D	                 G 
Everyone’s seen her films and I’ll whisper her name
	Am			C	    G
That we only touched elbows is not such a shame

         C		D		Em	  C
For the world’s getting crowded and I can’t see a lapse
C						G
It’s not about leaving spaces but filling the gaps
 	    C	       D	     Em		C
We’re all bumping and knocking strangers all the time
C					    D
Sometimes we don’t notice, mostly we don’t mind

G			       C	G
A foot brushes your ankle on a peak hour bus
         Em
Someone’s hand on the small of your back as they pass
C	     D		   G
A shopkeepers fingers while handing you change
 Am					      Em 	           D
Can lightly brush yours without feeling too strange 

	    G			C	G
But why I felt so alive I can’t quite determine
Em
There could be a word to explain it in German
      C		D	  G
Some take others home waking up to regret it
Am						Em         
We only touched elbows and I’ll never forget it

D   G   C        G  
C    G   Em    Em   
C    D    G     
Am   Am    Em     D
G   C  G   Em  Em 
C   D  G   Am 
Em  Em

	G		    C		G
Now the innocent DJ still spins his black moons
Em						Em
And keeps us all moving with his faithful tunes
C	       D			G
And the lights nod in synch, they’re mechanically powered
Am			      C		      G
We only touched elbows and I still haven’t
