Tom Russell Dance Hall Girls Lyrics

C G C
These dance hall girls, they'll treat you kind
C F C
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds
F C F Em F
They'll fill you up, with lipstick lies
F C
Then they'll put you down son
G Am D
Don't be surprised
D C G F C G C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?

C G C
I held her mountains, I kissed her plains
C F C
I touched her sunshine, Lord then I drank her rains
F C F Em F
But I went too far, I broke too fast
F C
I thought I had a winner picked
G Am D
But I came in last, again
D C G F C G C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?

Refrain:

Em F C
I must have chosen the wrong season to come down
Em F G
I never realized they call this sacred ground

G C G C
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind
C F C
I sent a letter home, but this all takes time you know
F C F Em F
I gotta get some money, I wanna go back home
F C
But these dance hall girls
C G Am D
Know how to make a man feel alone
D C G F C G C
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimor

Repeat Refrain

G C G C
My sense of time, hell I'm a week behind
C F C
They'll give you their bodies, but you'll never touch their minds
F C F Em F
They'll fill you up, with lipstick lies
F C
These dance hall girls say
G Am D
They can't stand to see a grown man cry
D C G F
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
F C G F
Is this the way it always is here in Montreal?
F C G F C G
Is this the way it always is here in Baltimore?
