(Bob: These are the chords to the appalachian shape-note hymn melody  borrowed  for it contained in Westerfilk 2 rather than Simple Gifts.)

This is what happens when Cathy Cook MacDonald leads Lord of the Dance in
a crowded filk room.

We Am
danced 
on the tables and we G
danced 
on the chairs. 
We Am
danced 
on the instruments, igG
nor
ing angry E7
glares
We Am
danced 
near some filkers, and we Dm
danced 
on their feet, 
And we Am
danced 
as we G
beat 
a fast retreat.

Am
Dance
, dance, wherG
ever 
you mayAm
be
Even if there isn t D
room
,  said E
she
But I ll Am
dance 
on G
you 
if you Dm
dance 
on E
me
Still, I Am
think 
you all ought to G
dance
,  said Am
she
.
