Artist: The Sweet
Song: The Ballroom Blitz
Record: Desolation Boulevard


So this is basically the same thing Nicky Chinn & Mike Chapman wrote out
just with the chords on the whole song instead of only the first half and 
the churus and parts that repeat copied in the order that the song is 
performed. 


INTRO: 
18 bars drums
(spoken)
Are you ready Steve? Uh huh
Andy? Yeah
Mick? OK
Alright fellas, let's go!

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]

E [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 FOUR TIMES]

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

E [NO CHORD]
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


E               F#                       A
Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
                     C                               E
And the band started leaping 'cause they all stopped breathing
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       


[BASS INTERLUDE]


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 FOUR TIMES]


E                            D
It's, it's a ballroom blitz

E                            D
It's, it's a ballroom blitz

E                            D
It's, it's a ballroom blitz 

E
Yeah, it's a ballroom blitz

REPEAT RIFF AND FADE

THERE IS A SOLO IN THERE THAT I HAVENT FIGURED OUT. BUT YOU CAN BASICALLY DO 
ANYTHING AS LONG AS THE MAIN RIFF IS PLAYING OVER IT WITH A LITLLE HARMONY 
FROM THE LEAD A FEW TIMES.
