Artist: P.J. Harvey
Song: The Dancer
Album: To Bring You My Love

On the album, the guitar is strummed quite fast and it is easier to play if you place 
pick on the last frets of the

fretboard rather than the body of the guitar like you normally would. On her latest live 
however, P.J.Harvey

plays only the intro (if there is one) and the part from "My love will stay till the 
bed run dry" until "The man is

gone and heaven only knows" this fast.

Chords:

     Am Dm G  F  E
E|---0--1--3--1-------------------|
B|---1--3--0--1-------------------|
G|---2--2--0--2--1----------------|
D|---2--0--0--3--2----------------|
A|---0-----2--3--2----------------|
E|---------3--1--0----------------|

The song basically consists of two chord patterns, Am G F E and Am Dm E.

Intro:
Am G F E X 2

        Am                 Dm                    E
He came riding fast like a phoenix out of fire flames
        Am                    Dm                    E
He came dressed in black with a cross bearing my name
        Am                  Dm              E
He came bathed in light and splendor and glory
        Am                        Dm             E
I can't believe what the lord has finally sent me

Am Dm E X 2

        Am               Dm           E
He said dance for me, fanciulla gentil
        Am                   Dm                 E
He said laugh a while, I can make your heart feel
        Am                     Dm                 E
He said fly with me, touch the face of the true god
         Am                  Dm            E
And then cry with joy at the depth of my love
Am                      Dm
Cause I've prayed days, I've prayed nights
E
For the lord just to send me home some sign
Am                Dm
I've looked long, I've looked far
E                                     Am
To bring peace to my black and empty heart
Dm  E   E   Am  Dm  E   E
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Aaaaah

Am G F E X 4

    Am                     Dm              E
My love will stay till the river bed run dry
       Am                     Dm             E
And my love lasts long as the sunshine blue sky
   Am                Dm              E
I love him longer as each damn day goes
    Am              Dm           E
The man is gone and heaven only knows
Am                     G
Cause I've cried days, I've cried nights
F              E
For the lord just to send me up some sign
Am          G
Is he near? Is he far?
F               E
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
Am           G
So long day, so long night
F            E
Oh lord, be near me tonight
Am          G
Is he near? Is he far?
F                 E
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
Am G F E
Aaaaah
Am G F E

End with an Am. Enjoy, Vaggs ;)
