Genesis
					We Can't Dance

Tabbed by Frederic Maquet.  f.maquet@ic.ac.uk

This is a classic rock tune and I couldn't believe no one had tabbed it
(although it is
pretty simple)....This is by no means entirely correct, as the original
has a synthesizer that
adds a good bit of the punch, and the bass does a lot too.
If some of the chords seem unusual, it's because I wanted it to sound as
Bass-y as
possible (to give it some crunch!).  You can always use the normal
chords although
it'll sound less "authentic".  Enjoy.

For any errors, comments, corrections, etc, email me at
f.maquet@ic.ac.uk

	   Hot sun    Beating           Burning  wal-  around
			  down		my feet   king


C C G G		 F  G G
      Hot sun        beating down
C C G G			   Bb       C
      burning my feet just walking around.

(Same thing:)

Hot sun making me sweat
'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet


Chorus: (same tune as verse)
-------
C C G G		F  G G
I can't dance, I can't talk.
C C G G                        Bb    C
The only thing about me is the way I walk.

I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.

Verse 2:
--------

Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach.

She's got a body under that shirt,
but all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt.

'Cause, I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling.

Bridge:

   checking... place...  know

    Bb			      F
And checking everything is in place,
	  C
you never know who's looking on.

Verse 3:
--------

Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues.

Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.

But I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling


Bridge 2:
---------
       Bb 	    F		    C

A:-1---------------13----------3----------------------|

    Bb			      F
And checking everything is in place
	  C		
You never know who's looking on
Bb		 Eb		  F
  A perfect body   with a perfect face,  uhan.

End:
----

Play chorus lots of time with loads of scat vocals...while
playing the "intro-riff"...

and singing:

"I won't dance,  please don't ask me..."

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. Wrong in too many ways: wrong chords, wrong title, unreadable because of the hyperlink lyrics in yellow (the link is dead however) etc etc etc. This tab should not be on this site.
