                Performed By: Barenaked Ladies (Live)

This song is performed live by Barenaked Ladies quite often, and this is
the version I've got here. Its not neccessarily the same as George
Michael's version, but hey, I like it :-)

Guitar: I've seen Ed play this with one of his PRS guitars, so it calls
for a Humbucker, a dab of chorus and a nudge up on the gain maybe. You want
a warm sound for this song. Its capoed on the third fret.

Intro Riff. This is only played as the intro to the song.

Capo 3
          Am7                Am7                Am7                Am7


Verse Chords:

     Am7  A7sus2  Dm   Dmadd1  Dm11 A7sus4


Am7   Amsus2      Dm     Dmadd1
I feel so       unsure,
     Dm11                        A7sus4 (once)
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.

Am7   A7sus2
As the music dies...
Dm                 Dmadd1
Something in your eyes,

Calls to mind a silver screen,
    A7sus4 (once)
And all those sad goodbyes.

Am7       Amsus2  Am7
I'm never gonna dance again,
Dm               Dmadd1  Dm
Guilty feet have got     no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.

Am7                     Amsus2  Am7
I should have no better than to cheat a friend,
Dm                        Dmadd1 Dm
And waste the chance that I'd    been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
A7sus4 (once)
The way I danced with you.

INSTRUMENTAL (Play Chorus chords)

VERSE (Play Verse Chords, minus the Amsus2 and Dmadd1)
Time can never mend,
The careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind,
If your answer's kind...
There's no comfort in the truth,
Pain is all you'll find.


BRIDGE (Play to verse chords music Amsus2 and Dmadd1)
Tonite the music seems so loud,
I wish that we could lose the crowd.
Maybe it's better this way,
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.

We could have been so good together,
We could have made this last forever...
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay.

Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Was what I did so wrong?
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?


And thats about it!

Thanks to TheHYPO for help on the chords. I messed up big time on them first off.

This is an interpretation of an original song. I spent my time working on this,
so please don't rip me off.
