We Came To Dance- The Gaslight Anthem

Many of the songs featured on this album are played a full-step down. If you wish to be accurate to the record you can tune your guitar down to: DGCFAD and use the tool on the side to alter the key until the first chord reads Am.

Intro: 

Verse 1:
Em                       G
We are the last of the jukebox Romeos, 
            D                             C
We are romantics by the light of the four-way
                       Em                 G
Came to sing out a chorus, reinvent the good times
             D              C
Bring'in it all back home again

Chorus:
      Em
Honey we came to dance with the girls with the stars in their eyes
        G
Do the jump back jack stop and slide to the right
D                                                C
Never break their hearts, never make 'em cry, come on
Em
Strike up the band, play a song that everybody knows
 G
If I'm not your kind then don't tell a soul
D                                               C
I'm not the one who hates being alone, so come on

Interlude: Em G D C

Verse 2:
Em 
And in the sun-stabled arena
G
Of what's left or become of my America
D                                             C
I'm asking this dance, so come take my hand, come on
Em 
And in the sun-stabled arena
G
Of what's left or become of my America
D                                             C
I'm asking this dance, so come take my hand, come on

Chorus:
      Em
Honey we came to dance with the girls with the stars in their eyes
        G
Do the jump back jack stop and slide to the right
D                                                C
Never break their hearts, never make 'em cry, come on
Em
Strike up the band, play a song that everybody knows
 G
If I'm not your kind then don't tell a soul
D                                               C
I'm not the one who hates being alone, so come on 

Bridge: 
(One strum- *)

Em*                      G*    
And if they end it all by the end of tonight
D*                                    C
If the big bomb drops down over this quiet Edison sky
Em                       G
We'll blow one last kiss to all the beautiful nights like this
D (Dsus4 hammer)       C
Under the central Jersey sky

Chorus:
      Em (Staccato)
Honey we came to dance with the girls with the stars in their eyes
        G (Staccato)
Do the jump back jack stop and slide to the right
D(Staccato)                                       C (Staccato)
Never break their hearts, never make 'em cry, come on
Em
Strike up the band, play a song that everybody knows
 G
If I'm not your kind then don't tell a soul
D                                               C
I'm not the one who hates being alone, so come on 

Outro:
Em
'Cause you ain't never had a night on the town
G
Like I could show you such a night on the town
D
And you ain't never had a song you could sing
           C
Well it's a deep, dark night, and I hear you, I've been there
Em
But these are the songs that we sing
          G
Whoa-oh, these are the songs that we sing
                     D        D
You've never seen a two step (two-step)
                                 C
Like when you seen it from your mama's house
                                           Em
When the kids flash like lightning to the very best dancers around
                     G
We learned from the very best dancers around
                      D
We learned from the very best dancers in town
              C
Come take my hand
                        G
'Cause mama we came to dance
