Dance Hall Girls
================
by:  Tom Russell
written by:  Fraser & DeBolt

                 C     G                   C
These dance hall girls,  they'll treat you kind
C                                  F                        C
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds
        F        C   F              Em   F
They'll fill you up,  with lipstick lies
F                      C
Then they'll put you down son
G            Am    D
Don't be surprised
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?

C                    G             C
I held her mountains, I kissed her plains
C                       F                     C
I touched her sunshine, Lord then I drank her rains
      F        C   F            Em   F
But I went too far, I broke too fast
F                  C
I thought I had a winner picked
G             Am     D
But I came in last, again
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?


Refrain:

Em                           F              C
I must have chosen the wrong season to come down
Em                    F                G
I never realized they call this sacred ground

G           C     G                  C
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind
C                    F                    C
I sent a letter home,  but this all takes time you know
        F        C     F                 Em   F
I gotta get some money,  I wanna go back home
F                    C
But these dance hall girls
C           G               Am    D
Know how to make a man feel alone
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?


Solo:  Play through one verse

Repeat Refrain

G           C     G                  C
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind
C                                  F                        C
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds
        F        C   F              Em   F
They'll fill you up,  with lipstick lies
F                C
These dance hall girls say
     G                    Am         D
They can't stand to see a grown man cry
D           C             G               F
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
F           C             G               F
Is this the way it always is here in Montreal?
F           C             G               F     C  G
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?

F  C  G    F  C  G  C
