Taxi Dancer Chords

[Verse 1]
Oh yeah
D                     A            G
Well she started out, just to be a dancer
D                     A
Gonna make her livin' dancin'
                 G
In the Broadway shows
D
So she hitchhiked cross the country
A                            G
From Pasaroba to the Big Red Apple
Em
Where your dreams are made
A                          D
Your debts must be paid on time
 
[Chorus]
G             A           D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
G                           A
And I'll listen to how your outgrew your dreams
               D
How they faded away
G              A          D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Em                         A               D
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage
 
[Verse 2]
D                       A             G
Well she wasn't used to livin' in the city
D
So she took a job cleanin' up as a maid
A                     G
At the Grammercy Park Hotel
D
And all her auditions
A                       G
They didn't turn out so pretty
Em
So she took a job dancin'
A                             D
At the bar down the street as well
 
[Chorus]
G             A           D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
G                           A
And I'll listen to how your outgrew your dreams
               D
How they faded away
G              A          D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Em                         A               D
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage
 
[Verse 3]
D
Well I don't know how long or how far
A                     G
Her fortune did take her
D
But I heard she sits alone drunk
A                         G
In a bar downtown on 42nd Street
D
And sometimes an old Butch
A                            G
Will slip a quarter into the jukebox
Em
And she'll stagger to the bar
A                            G
And dance with that girl for free
 
[Chorus]
G             A           D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
G                           A
And I'll listen to how your outgrew your dreams
               D
How they faded away
G              A          D
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Em                         A               D
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage
