Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
C Em/B | Am C/G | F Am/E | Dm F/C
G G/F | Em G7/D | C F | G F/A:G7

Verse 1:
C      Em/B                Am   C/G
  We skipped the light fandango,
F      Am/E                          Dm  F/C
  And turned cartwheels 'cross the floor.
G        G/F             Em     G/D
  I was feeling kind of seasick,
C           Em/B                Am  C/G
  But the crowd called out for more.

F      Am/E             Dm    F/C
  The room was humming harder
G         G/F           Em  G/D
  As the ceiling flew away,
C          Em/B            Am      C/G
  When we called out for another drink,
F      Am/E              Dm7
  The waiter brought a tray.

Chorus:
Em7add11   Am/C Em/B       Am   C/G
And so it was        that later,
F         Am/E            Dm  F/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.

[Instrumental] = [Intro]

Verse 2:
C      Em/B              Am    C/G
  She said, there is no reason
F           Am/E             Dm  F/C
  And the truth is plain to see.
G        G/F                  Em     G/D
  But I wandered through my playing cards
C            Em/B        Am C/G
  And would not let her be

F         Am/E           Dm     F/C
  One of sixteen vestal virgins
G           G/F             Em   G/D
  Who were leaving for the coast.
C         Em/B              Am   C/G
  And although my eyes were open,
F                Am/E               Dm7
  They might've just as well been closed.

[Chorus]

[Instrumental] = [Intro]

Coda:
Em7add11   Am/C Em/B       Am   C/G
And so it was        that later...
