Album: I Hope You Dance
Written by:  Mark D. Sanders\Tia Stillers
Note: This song was played faster then it was recording by the radio
station, but I'm pretty sure this is the key.

 I HOPE YOU DANCE    Lee Ann Womack with the Sons Of The Desert

F    Eb              F                 Bb   
  I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
              Eb               F                Bb                
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
         Eb            
May you never take one single breath for granted
         F
God for-bid love ever leave you empty handed
F             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
        Eb             
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
              F       
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
             Eb   F             Bb     Eb  F 
I hope you dance    I hope you dance
F             Eb                  F              Bb         
  I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
       Eb            F                 Bb  
Ever settle for the path of least re-sistance
        Eb
Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking
           F                    
A loving heart may be a mistake but it's worth making
      Eb                  F               Bb 
Don't let some helpless heart leave you bitter
        Eb                    F       Bb
If you come close to selling out re-consider
           Eb                
Give the heavens above more then just a passing glance
              F                                                  Bb  
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance   I hope you dance-ance
(Backup vocals)
  Bb        Eb                E            Bb             Eb         F    
-ance-ance                                 I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion Always know that why Love's so strong)
         Bb            Eb                  F  
            I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their youth) 
F               Bb         Eb         F     
             I hope you dance
(and wondered where those years have gone )
            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
        Eb             
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
              F       
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Eb     F              Eb   F             Bb 
Dance    I hope you dance    I hope you dance
Ending repeat the backup vocals area to fade
