1. Well, they shouldn't have played that good
I got carried away and let the music
Go to my head
Well, she shouldn't have worn that dress,
The way it curled around her when she was spinnin'
Just killed me dead!
My heart began to tell my body and my soul
That it had gotten in the mood to lose control.
Oh, no! When did neon lights turn into moon glow?
When did that juke box turn to a rainbow?
I'm about to give in to this urge!
One more slow dance with your arms around me,
One more long glance, and nothing will slow down me!
I got no chance, If I'm not in love I'm on the verge!
2. All I wanted to be was cool,
It ain't my style to overheat
Much less burn
But as we floated across the floor
All at once I flashed right past the point
Of no return
And when we said goodnight the sun was on the rise
Any stars that hadn't set had fallen in my eyes
Instrumental: (lead guitar chorus, modulate up a whole step)
Repeat last half of Chorus:
Tag: Mmmmm, mmmmmm, If I'm not in love I'm on the verge!
Submitted 3/27/97 to COWPIE by Bob West (firstname.lastname@example.org) based on playing
along with the music video on CMT. Although I've tried carefully to catch
all chord changes, you may hear others that I have missed. Corrections and
improvements are always welcomed!! Thanks to the staff and management of
COWPIE for supporting country guitarists of all levels of skill!
I've used "/" to indicate counts where no vocal lines guide the timing.
