                Here's the chords for an old song from that wierd turtle album. If you
have anything interesting (positive or negative) to say, please mail
me. You'll p**s off fewer people and, besides, I don't have the time
to follow this group with it's zillions of posts.

"They Dance Alone (Cueco solo)" -  STING    from "...Nothing Like The
                                             and      "Fields of Gold"

This is fairly simple except for two chords.
(All others are detailed at the bottom anyway.)

Faug4maj7     133200  
Eadd6         022120

I think that they're correctly named and placed in the song but mail
me if you know better. All comments, criticisms and corrections would
be appreciated.
(I wouldn't mind knowing what the song is about either. Sorry if
that's a little ignorant......)

B                                Esus4           E

F#m
   they'd go missing too.

Ellas danzan con los desaparecidos

Danzan con sus padres
Danzan con sus hijos
Danzan con sus esposos
Ellas danzan solas
Danzan solas

   One day the money's going to stop
