- The First Step (Chords)
The First Step (Alternate version)
Recorded by Tracy Byrd
CAPO 2nd FRET
NOTE 1: matellmon deserves FULL credit for this. All I did was add a capo and transpose his chords.
NOTE 2: In the chorus where it goes E-F-F#-G and where it goes G-G#-A I use all bar chords.
See the diagrams for G and A as bar chords.
Verse1: A D
The lights were hot and the beer was not and the band was playin loud
the house was full but her eyes pulled me right across the crowd
I said "How's a guy like me, to get to know you?"
she said "Not so fast, let me show you"
Chorus: D E F F# G
She said the first step... is the two-step
D G G# A
I'm here to dance, nothing more, swing me round that hardwood floor
if you want to run with me, crawl before you walk
D A D
the first step is the two-step then we'll talk
Verse2: A D
We sang along with every song & the room was spinning round
we danced in line she felt so fine & we hardly touched the ground
so I said maybe we could make a reservation
for some wine with candlelight and conversation
Outro: A D
well first things first let's two-step then we'll talk
