Come Dancing Chords
Come Dancing - The Kinks



(Backwards Strums)

G                                    D
They put a parking lot on a piece of land
D                               G
Where the supermarket used to stand.
  G                           D
Before that they put up a bowling alley
D                                  G
On the site that used to be the local pally.
C                            G
That's where the big bands used to come and play.
D                         G
My sister went there on a Saturday.

chorus:
     C
Come dancing,
                   G
All her boyfriends used to come and call.
             D              C    G
Why not come dancing? it's only natural

riff

Another Saturday, another date.
She would be ready but she's always make them wait.
In the hallway, in anticipation,
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration.
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.

chorus:

Come dancing,
That's how they did it when I was just a kid,
And when they said come dancing,
My sister always did.

riff

Em                   D              C
My sister should have come in at midnight,
Em                  D              C
And my mom would always sit up and wait.
Em          D              C
It always ended up in a big row
Em                D              C
When my sister used to get home late.

This part is like the into:
 G                          D
(spoken) Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight,
D                                                            G
Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate. (Mom yells at them...)
Em           D                C
The day they knocked down the pally
Em       D          C
My sister stood and cried.
Em           D              C
The day they knocked down the pally
Em         D              C
Part of my childhood died, just died.

(loud) Em D C D  Em D C D Em D C D Em D C D

repeat intro:   G   D       D       G

Now I'm grown up and playing in a band,
And there's a car park where the pally used to stand.
My sister's married and she lives on an estate.
Her daughters go out, now it's her turn to wait.
She knows they get away with things she never could,
But if I asked her I wonder if she would,

chorus:

Come dancing,
Come on sister, have yourself a ball.
Don't be afraid to come dancing,
It's only natural.

The last chorus leads to a key change....
         C
Come dancing,
C                    G
Just like the pally on a Saturday.
                              D
And all her friends will come dancing
            C               Em
Where the big bands used to play.

Hold the Em for two measures, then modulate to the key of Eb. This is the
same riff as before, played in Eb. Perhaps someone out there can write the
notes for the finale...

repeat 4 times:      Eb     Bb       Bb       Eb

About the artist behind Come Dancing Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
