Intro:
    Gm   Eb   Bb   F
    Gm   Eb   F   Gm   Eb   Bb   F   Gm   Eb   F

Bb 
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
               Gm
You get your fill to eat, but always have that hunger
         Eb
May you never take onw single breath for granted
          F     
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed


          Eb                  F                    Bb
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
             Eb             F              Bb
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
        Cm                 Bb               Eb
Promise me that you'll give fate the fighting chance 
                                           F
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance


             Gm  Eb  Bb  F
I hope you dance
             Gm  Eb   F
I hope you dance


             Bb
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
        Gm
Never settle for the path of least resistance
        Eb
Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking
         F
Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making
       Eb                 F              Bb
Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
                 Eb            F         Bb
When you come close to selling out reconsider
           Cm          Bb                Eb    
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
                                           F
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance


             Gm  Eb  Bb  F               Gm  Eb  F
I hope you dance          I hope you dance
             Gm  Eb  Bb  F               Gm  Eb  F
I hope you dance          I hope you dance


             Eb                    F                Bb
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
             Eb               F            Bb
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
        Cm                Bb               Eb
Promise me that you'll give fate the fighting chance 
                                          F
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance


   Gm  Eb  Bb  F                          Gm  Eb  F
Dance                     I hope you dance
             Gm  Eb  Bb  F                Gm  Eb  F
I hope you dance          I hope you dance   
             Gm  Eb  Bb  F                Gm  Eb  F 
I hope you dance          I hope you dance

    -3 and +2 are the esiest to play for beginners, +2 is slightly easier for me personally when it comes to switching notes quickly.
