Intro.


C C/B Am C/G 

F F/E Dm Dm/C 

G G/F Em G7/D 

C F G G


C    C/B              Am     C/G
We skipped the light fandango
F    F/E                     Dm    Dm/C
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
G       G/F          Em      G7/D
I was feeling kinda seasick
C    C/B              Am     C/G
but the crowd called out for more
F       F/E          Dm     Dm/C
The room was humming harder
G       G/F          Em    G7/D
as the ceiling flew away
C    C/B              Am     C/G
When we called out for another drink
F       F/E          Dm
the waiter brought a tray

Chorus

G          C  Em        Am    C/G
And so it was,___ that later,____
F       F/E             Dm  Dm/C
as the miller told his tale
G   G/F                  Em           G7/D
that her face, at first just ghostly,
           C    F        C    G7
turned a whiter shade of pale


C    C/B              Am     C/G
She said, 'There is no reason
F    F/E                     Dm    Dm/C
and the truth is plain to see.'
G       G/F          Em      G7/D
But I wandered through my playing cards
C    C/B              Am     C/G
and would not let her be
F    F/E                     Dm    Dm/C
one of sixteen vestal virgins
G       G/F             Em         G7/D
who were leaving for the coast
C    C/B              Am     C/G
and although my eyes were open
F       F/E          Dm
they might have just as well've been closed

G          C  Em        Am    C/G
And so it was,___ that later,____
F       F/E             Dm  Dm/C
as the miller told his tale
G   G/F                  Em           G7/D
that her face, at first just ghostly,
           C    F        C    G7
turned a whiter shade of pale
