    On The Verge

    G
    1. Well, they shouldn't have played that good 
    I got carried away and let the music
    Go to my head
    G
    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.
    DG
    Oh, no! When did neon lights turn into moon glow? 
    GD
    When did that juke box turn to a rainbow? 
    I'm about to give in to this urge!
    C
    One more slow dance with your arms around me, 
    G
    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
    Repeat Chorus
    Instrumental: (lead guitar chorus, modulate up a whole step)
    Repeat last half of Chorus:
    C
    One more slow dance with your arms around me, 
    G
    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!

    Tag: Mmmmm, mmmmmm, If I'm not in love I'm on the verge!

    Submitted 3/27/97 to COWPIE by Bob West (rlwest@ti.com) 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.
