Artist: The Sweet
Song: The Ballroom Blitz
Record: Desolation Boulevard
Written by: Nicky Chinn & Mike Chapman

I know there's more guitar in this track, but I think
it's a good start to have the chords and the main riff...
Enjoy !

INTRO: 
18 bars drums, then play RIFF four times

A
It's been getting so hard
                                 E
living with the things you do to me             [RIFF TWICE]
   A
My dreams are getting so strange
                                  E
I'd like to tell you everything I see           [RIFF TWICE]

[NO CHORD]
I see a man at the back 
as a matter of fact
his eyes are as red as the sun
And a girl in the corner 
let no one ignore her 'cause 
she thinks she's the passionate one

E                    F#                       A
Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
                  C                             E
and the music was soothing and they all started grooving
E
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


CHORUS:

        F#                    A
And the man at the back said "Everyone attack" 
       B                      E
and it turned into a ballroom blitz
        F#                       A
And the girl in the corner said "Boy I wanna warn you"
       B                      E
and it turned into a ballroom blitz
D   D#   E
Ballroom blitz          [repeat 4 times]

[RIFF TWICE]

I'm reaching out for something
touching nothing's all I ever do                [RIFF TWICE]
I softly call you over
When you appear there's nothing left of you     [RIFF TWICE]

Now the man at the back is ready to crack
as he raises his hands to the sky
And the girl in the corner is everyone's moaner
she could kill you with a wink of her eye

Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
And the band started leaping 'cause they all stopped breathing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


CHORUS

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
and the music was soothing and they all started grooving
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


CHORUS


E                            D
It's, it's a ballroom blitz             [repeat 3 times]

E
Yeah, it's a ballroom blitz

REPEAT RIFF AND FADE

.....

And here's the RIFF (or at least an easy way to get close):
E------------------------
B------------------------
G--9--(9)-(9)-(9)-9------
D--9--11--12--11--9------
A--7--7---7---7---7------
E--7--7---7---7---7------

(9) means that you can leave the note out without anyone 
noticing if you can't stretch your fingers like this :)
