1: Looking back   on the memory of

          D                          G           D
1: The   dance we shared  'neath the stars above
2: For a moment               wasn't I a king

          G  C/G   G     C/G  C
1: For a moment     all  the world was right
2: If I'd only known how the king would fall

1: How could I have known  that you'd ever say          goodbye
2: Then,  who's to say     you know I might have changed it all

[CHORUS]
     C                     D
And now  I'm glad I didn't know
                     Bm7
The way it all would end

The way it all would go

%Our lives are better left to chance
                        Bm7
I could have missed the pain
                    C    D   G(1st repeat intro lick  2nd repeat from %)
But I'd have had to miss the dance

(Keyboards continue through arpeggios, but I play the following guitar chords)

Em/C/Dsus D/Em7(add 4th)/    repeat and fade  (slash separates measures)

NOTES:
I generally fingerpick the verses with a timtrtmi.  It's not exactly
what's on the CD, but it's close.  If anyone has something better,
I'd be happy to hear about it.
Bm7       is played x24232
Em7(add4) is played 002030
It helps to play the G with your middle, ring, and pinky fingers
Just slide 2 frets up the neck to get the D/G chord in the guitar intro
Listen to the song to get the rhythm
The "G  C/G G C/G" in the verses are played like the guitar intro

If you download this then I assume that you are a country music fan like me.
I haven't found enough country songs in the archive, so I'll begin sending
some of my own, hoping that others will send some that I don't know.
If you want to talk country guitar with me, or if my notation makes no sense
(this is my first attempt at tab notation) feel free to e-mail me.
