[Verse 1]
E5      G5          D5   
 Let me tell you a story 
 to chill the bones
         D5           E5
About a thing that I saw
           G5       D5 
One night wandering in 
the Everglades
C5        D5         E5
I'd one drink but no more
       G5         D5     
I was rambling, enjoying 
the bright moonlight
       D5         E5
Gazing up at the stars
     G5          D5     
Not aware of a presence 
so near to me
C5        D5       E5
 Watching my every move

[Verse 2]
Feeling scared and 
   D5          C5
I fell to my knees
As something rushed me 
from the trees
        G5      D5     A5
Took me to an unholy place
     C5           D5     
And that is where I fell 
from grace
           G5         D5   
Then they summoned me over 
to join in with them
        D5           E5
To the dance of the dead
          G5        D5  
Into the circle of fire 
I followed them
C5       D5            Em
Into the middle I was led

[Verse 3]
       G6               D6sus2
As if time had stopped still 
I was numb with fear
     Cmaj7   D6sus2   Em
But still I wanted to go
          G6          D6sus2  
And the blaze of the fire did 
no hurt upon me
Cmaj7  D6sus2           Em
 As I walked onto the coals
       G6   D6sus2      Asus2
And I felt  I was in a trance
        Cmaj7      D6sus2     Em
And my spirit was lifted from me
         G6   D6sus2 
And if only  someone 
had the chance
    Cmaj7        D6sus2     Em
To witness what happened to me

      G6              D6sus2 
And I danced, and I pranced, 
and I sang with them
Cmaj7    D6sus2        Em
All had death in their eyes
          G6       D6sus2    
Lifeless figures - they were 
undead - all of them
Cmaj7      D6sus2       Em
They had ascended from hell

[Verse 4]
E5           F#5       G5
 As I danced with the dead
            A5      D5      
My free spirit was laughing 
    G5       E5
and howling down at me
           F#5  G5
Below my undead body
A5    D5         G5        E5 
Just danced the circle of dead
C5  B5
E5               F#5 
 Until the time came 
    G5         A5
 to reunite us both
    D5     G5        E5
My spirit came back down to me
             F#5  G5              A5
I didn't know if  I was alive or dead
       D5     G5     E5
As the others all joined in with me

|Em  |Em  |Em  |Em  |

[Verse 5]
By luck then a skirmish started
And took the attention away from me
When they took their gaze from me
Was the moment that I fled
I ran like hell, faster than the wind
But behind I did not glance
One thing that I did not dare
Was to look just straight ahead

E5              F#5       G5  
 When you know that your time 
`           A5
 has come around
     D5         G5    E5
You know you'll be prepared for it
               F#5   G5          A5
Say your last good--byes to everyone
         D5       G5    E5
Have a drink and say a prayer for it

When you're lying in your sleep, 
when you're lying in your bed
And you wake from your dreams to 
go dancing with the dead
When you're lying in your sleep, 
when you're lying in your bed
And you wake from your dreams to 
go dancing with the dead

E5       G5          D5          C5
 To this day I guess I'll never know
          D5         E5
Just why they let me go
          G5       D5         A5
But I'll never go dancing no more
C5       D5             Em
 'Til I dance with the dead
