About this tab version
Barton Carroll picks the hell out of it, but this is good for getting the chords that are used and figuring out a picking or strumming pattern that works for you. Capo on 3. I'm still not confident on the chorus chords, so if you have a suggestion, please let me know. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
[Verse 1]

Am                        C           F               C
Well I don't know what to say to the prettiest bridesmaid 
                                    F                C
And It's easy for some, but you got me stunned and dumb 
                    Am                  C  
And you know how it is when a man gets down 
                F                       C
He won't know love from a hole in the ground 
                     Am                         F
But I'm sick of the wait, and I'm sick of the fear 
                    C
And it ends right here 


[Verse 2]

  Am                              C                   F                    C
Things were bad for me; I came across the sea never knowing just what I'd do 
                                                        F               C
I got your old man doused at the the public house and he took me on his crew 
         Am                          C
So I worked my way; showed up every day 
           F             C      Am
And I was like an only so-------n 
     F               C 
Oh, I was a lonely one 


[Verse 3]

         Am                 C                   F                 C
And you know I do, whenever I see you I always try to avert my eyes 
                                                     F                   C
But you caught my gaze as the glasses raise and we toast the groom and bride 
             Am                          C
And though you're in the sight of every man tonight 
          F            C
I keep saying it to myself 
                   Am                        F               C
"If the whisky's strong, and the band plays on, I can do no wrong." 


[Chorus]

    G                         Am
So dance with me, won't you dance with me 
        F                      C
Little Katie don't you turn me down 
          G                   Am
I been in a rut, but I could get the guts 
          F                        C
If I can make it through one more round 
               G                      Am
And when the music stops, little goldilocks 
        F             C
In my heart you can confide 
  G                   F            C     
Hand in hand in the English Countryside 


[Verse 3]
  
         Am                 C                              F                 C
I had a girl back home. She left me all alone said I was born with two left feet 
                                                           F                   C
And that's the truth of it. You know I must admit I can barely walk down the street 
   Am                          C
But if it takes one more to get me on that floor 
        F              C        Am
Let me see what I can do--------o 
     F                   C
To spend some time with you 


[Chorus]


    G                         Am
So dance with me, won't you dance with me 
        F                      C
Little Katie don't you turn me down 
          G                   Am
I been in a rut, but I could get the guts 
          F                        C
If I can make it through one more round 
               G                      Am
And when the music stops, little goldilocks 
        F             C
In my heart you can confide 
  G                   F            C     
Arm in Arm in the English Countryside 

Alright.

And now we're face to face with my hands around your waist 
                                        F                   C
And out here where we meet, there's no floor beneath my feet 
           Am                   C
You never had your fun with an American

I found that the chorus works well like this.

G Am
So dance with me, won't you dance with me
F C
Little Katie don't you turn me down
C Am
I been in a rut, but I could get the guts
F C
If I can make it through one more round
Am C
And when the music stops, little goldilocks
F C Am
In my heart you can confide
G F C
Arm in Arm in the English Countryside
