Dancing In The Dark Chords
Dancing in the Dark - Amy MacDonald live acoustic version.

Tabbed by Gramanski. (gramanski@live.co.uk)

My little sister asked me to work this out for her, so I thought I'd post it up here as well.

This is played a little bit slower than the Springsteen original
I'm sure this is pretty accurate because I watched the video on youtube about 50 times 
I was working it out.
(Amy MacDonald "Dancing in the Dark" @ Manchester Academy)

I know there are some deviations in the lyrics with the original, but this is how Amy 
it.

Amy uses some fingerpickin pattern that was too complicated for me to work out, if 
else can, please post it.

I just pluck the base note and strum.


Capo on the 3rd Fret

All chords and tabs are relative to the capo (Actually in Bb same as the Springsteen 
(I think))
