Lord Of The Dance


    C             Am              Em         Am
I danced in the morning when the world was begun

       Dm                          F            G7
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun

   C               Am          Em            Am
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth

     Dm     G7  C  F  C
At Bethlehem I had my birth


 C      Am     Em             Am
Dance, then, wherever you may be

C         Am          F          G7
I am the Lord of the dance, said He

           C      Am     Em            Am
And I'll lead you all wherever you may be

          F       G7          C     F   C
And I'll lead you all in the dance said He


    C             Am             Em    Am
I danced for the scribes and the pharisee

           Dm                      F             G7
But they wouldn't dance and they wouldn't follow Me

   C               Am            Em        Am
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John

      Dm         G7        C     F    C
They came with me, and the dance went on


    C            Am            Em        Am
I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame

     Dm                F       G7
The holy people said it was a shame

      C               Am                Em      Am
They wipped and they stripped and they hung Me high

     Dm           G7    C    F   C
And left me there on a cross to die


    C          Am             Em          Am
I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black

      Dm                     F             G7
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back

     C          Am       Em          Am
They buried my body and thought I'd gone

     Dm            G7       C     F   C
But I am the dance and the dance goes on


      C     Am         Em       Am
They cut me down and I lept up high

      Dm                F         G7
I am the Life that'll never never die

      C      Am             Em     Am
I'll live in you if you'll live in Me

   Dm         G7      C     F    C
I am the Lord of the dance, said He
