Radical Face
The Dead Waltz


Capo 1

All chords relative to Capo. Notes for Intro and Bridge not relative to Capo.
I think it's less confusing that way.

I like using bar chords version of the chords for G, A, and Bm. I think it
sounds better and it's easier to switch quickly between them that way, but
you can use the non-barred versions of those chords if you want. Doesn't
really matter.

G
I saw your daughter yesterday
         A           Bm
as I was idle on the porch
    A                 G
she slept-walked from your house down the walkway
                A              Bm 
as though she'd done it all before
        A        G
and the moon was out


Interlude:
A Bm   A G   A Bm   A G


and in her gown beside the riverbed
    A               Bm
she got down on her knees
                     A          G                     
and wrapped her long hair up in vines, and leaves, and branches
             A                Bm
and with the wind beneath her feet
        A
oh, she waltzed with the dead


Interlude:
C Em D C Em

                  G
as the impossible began
                      D       C 
she danced across the water's edge
        Em                G
but her feet, they didn't sink
              D     C    Em    D    G
as though she flew


(optional guitar part. i wanted to include the vocal melody in the guitar
because it sounds cool, but it's kind of hard to play smoothly and it's not
really necessary if you're singing)

she flew……

tie a bell around her ankle

before she lays down at night
        G            A
and the sound of her footsteps
