Genesis
					We Can't Dance

Tabbed by Frederic Maquet.  f.maquet@ic.ac.uk

This is a classic rock tune and I couldn't believe no one had tabbed it
(although it is
pretty simple)....This is by no means entirely correct, as the original
has a synthesizer that
adds a good bit of the punch, and the bass does a lot too.
If some of the chords seem unusual, it's because I wanted it to sound as
Bass-y as
possible (to give it some crunch!).  You can always use the normal
chords although
it'll sound less "authentic".  Enjoy.

C C G G F G G Hot sun beating down C C G G Bb C burning my feet just walking around. (Same thing:) Hot sun making me sweat 'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet Chorus: (same tune as verse) ------- C C G G F G G I can't dance, I can't talk. C C G G Bb C The only thing about me is the way I walk. I can't dance, I can't sing I'm just standing here selling everything. Verse 2: -------- Blue jeans sitting on the beach, her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach. She's got a body under that shirt, but all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt. 'Cause, I can't dance, I can't talk. The only thing about me is the way I walk. No, I can't dance, I can't sing I'm just standing here selling.

Bb F And checking everything is in place, C you never know who's looking on. Verse 3: -------- Young punk spilling beer on my shoes, fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues. Thick smoke, see her smiling through. I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool. But I can't dance, I can't talk. The only thing about me is the way I walk. I can't dance, I can't sing I'm just standing here selling

End: ---- Play chorus lots of time with loads of scat vocals...while playing the "intro-riff"... and singing: "I won't dance, please don't ask me..."  -- Frederic Maquet Webpage: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/3224/ **********************
