Intro: Ab

Verse:
          Ab        Fm
I found a love for me
             Db                            Eb
Darling just dive right in, and follow my lead
               Ab           Fm
Well I found a girl beautiful and sweet
         Db                                    Eb
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

Pre-Chorus:
                                 Ab
Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
             Fm                     Db                Ab  Eb
Not knowing what it was, I will not give you up this ti-ime
                   Ab                         Fm
But darling just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
            Db                   Eb
And in your eyes you’re holding mine

Chorus:
      Fm   Db             Ab          Eb              Fm
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Db                Ab     Eb                Fm
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
          Db                Ab                 Eb              Fm
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
         Db                Ab        Eb             Ab
But you heard it, darling you look perfect tonight

Interlude: Ab  Eb  Fm  Eb  Db  Eb 

Verse:
               Ab                    Fm
Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
                Db                                        Eb
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
           Ab             Fm
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
         Db                              Eb
To carry love, to carry children of our own

Pre-Chorus:
                              Ab                     Fm 
We are still kids, but we’re so in love, fighting against all odds
                  Db               Ab  Eb
I know that we’ll be alright this ti-ime
               Ab                            Fm 
Darling just hold my hand, be my girl, I’ll be your man
          Db              Eb
I see my future in your eyes

Chorus:
      Fm   Db              Ab         Eb              Fm
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Db                Ab     Eb                Fm
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
        Db                Ab                Eb      
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
  Fm       Db                  Ab        Eb            Ab 
I don't deserve this, darling you look perfect tonight

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Db                Ab     Eb                Fm
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
        Db              Ab               Eb             Fm
I have faith in what I see, now I know I have met an angel
    Db          Ab         Eb             
In person, and she looks perfect

No I don't deserve this, you look perfect tonight

  1. Shalom Jackie

    I use -4 it sounds really good :)

  2. chicken nugget

    I like to use dduudu (island strum)

  3. chicken nugget

    +4 I think is easiest. especially for beginners :)

  4. This version is way too hard to play! If you want to sing this song in a higher octave just use a capo and play the G,Em,C,D version! Beginners must be so frustrated at this.

  5. Just2Lazy4This

    I think that it should end with a single stroke down of Ab. It sounds so pretty. I love this song Sooooo much💝💝💝

  6. My favorite is +5

  7. just do DDDDDD
