Dance Hall Girls

Fraser & DeBolt

                     C     G                   C
These dance hall girls,  they'll treat you kind
C                                  F                        C
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds
        F        C   F              Em   F
They'll fill you up,  with lipstick lies
F                      C  
Then they'll put you down son
G            Am    D
Don't be surprised
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
C                    G             C
I held her mountains, I kissed her plains
C                       F                     C
I touched her sunshine, Lord then I drank her rains
      F        C   F            Em   F
But I went too far, I broke too fast
F                  C
I thought I had a winner picked
G             Am     D
But I came in last, again
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
***Refrain:
Em                           F              C
I must have chosen the wrong season to come down
Em                    F                G
I never realized they call this sacred ground
G           C     G                  C   
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind
C                    F                    C
I sent a letter home,  but this all takes time you know
        F        C     F                 Em   F
I gotta get some money,  I wanna go back home
F                    C
But these dance hall girls
C           G               Am    D
Know how to make a man feel alone
D           C             G                F    C  G  C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
