DANCE AROUND THE FIRE
by Slaid Cleaves / Mark Farrington . . . Happy Valley Music, BMI
from the CD No Angel Knows

Capo 2

[Intro] x2
[D] - ([G]walk [F]down) - [Em]


D
Bill’s been thinking a lot these days
          G          F       Em
About the way things used to be
D
He’s never been the kind of man
   G   F    Em       D
To put much faith in destiny

D
Sometimes he feels the warmth
     G         F    Em
Of a fire from long ago
D                            G
Sometimes he steps into the night
    F      Em                  D
And all he feels is the winter cold


C         G                D    C
Everybody dance around the fire tonight
C                     G                D   
You don’t have to wait ’till it’s your turn
C         G                             D    C
Everybody dance a little closer to the flame tonight
              G
But don’t get burned
              D
Pray that you don’t get burned
     
     D
They met in high school
         G     F     Em
And they never had a doubt
D
There’d be some hard times
        G          F      Em     D
But old Bill would find a way to work things out

Katie had a way about her
     G        F    Em
That made old Bill believe
  D
A small farm and three kids later
   G       F            Em      D
It looked just like the perfect family
    C       G                      D                   C
But one day Bill found out what he should’ve known all along:
            G
Things fall apart sometimes
    D                  C                   D  
One minute something’s there and then it’s gone

D
With the kids in bed that night
      G      F        Em
Katie gently shut the door
D
She turned to Bill and said
    G         F       Em       D
I’m sorry but I don’t love you anymore

    D
And now he spends his days
     G         F      Em
Just like he’s always done
D
You’d never guess the sorrow
          G   F  Em        D
That he’s hid so well from everyone

D
The house is empty now
    G    F            Em 
The kids grown up and gone
    D
And Bill slips into bed at night
     G     F            Em            D
With Katie right by his side and they hold on

C         G                D    C 
Everybody dance around the fire tonight
C                 G                    D
You don’t have to wait ’till it’s your turn
C         G                            D     C
Everybody dance a little closer to the flame tonight
              G
But don’t get burned
              D 
Pray that you don’t get burned
