For A Dancer - JACKSON BROWNE
From the 1974 album: Late For The Sky
Sumbitted by D. Weil

The song is mainly played on a piano, but heres the guitar chords anyway. Pretty straight
foreward, no tricky stuff and all basic open position chords.  Just watch for the Am to
C7 switch.  Enjoy!

C  -  032010
F  -  133211 
G  -  3x0003  or  320033
Am -  x02210
C7 -  x32310

C                     F
  Keep a fire burning in your eye
C                      F
  Pay attention to the open sky
C                     F                    C    G
  You never know what will be coming down

C                         F
  I don't remember losing track of you
C                                F
  You were always dancing in and out of view
C                         F                 C    G
  I must've thought you'd always be around
Am                      F                         C 
  Always keeping things real by playing the clown
             G
  Now you're nowhere to be found

C   F   C   G

C                                F
  I don't know what happens when people die
C                                F
  Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
(F)           C                       F   
  It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear
               C                     G
  That I can't sing  -  I can't help listening
C                                 F
  And I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round
C                F 
  Crying as they ease you down
C                          F                      C
  'Cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing
G                         Am
  Dancing our sorrow away
F
  Right on dancing
        C                   G 
          No matter what fate chooses to play
                                      C
  There's nothing you can do about it anyway

       F                 C
  Just do the steps that you've been shown
     F               C            G
  By everyone you've ever known
 Am                     C7 
  Until the dance becomes your very own
F               G 
  No matter how close to yours 
Am                            F
  Another's steps have grown
         C                G 
  In the end there is one dance you'll do alone

C   F   C   G   

Keep a fire for the human race
Let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know what will be coming down
Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found

Am              F                    C
  Don't let the uncertainty turn you around

          The world keeps turning around and around
     G                          C
  Go on and make a joyful sound

    F           C 
  Into a dancer you have grown
         F             C               G     
  From a seed somebody else has thrown
Am                     C7                      F
  Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own
F                      G                    Am 
  And somewhere between the time you arrive 
                      F
  And the time you go
              C                     G
  May lie the reason you were alive

  But you'll never know

C   F   C   G   C   G   C

Good for the most part, but during the interlude where there is a violin solo you left out some crucial chords. There's more to it than C F C G. There are also Am and Em as well.

You're incorrect Malac. If you check the sheet music published by Warner Bros you will see the that A minors appear as set out in this version and that there are no E minors in the song.
