 Song: Careless Whisper

Performed By: Barenaked Ladies (Live)

Written By: George Michael

Chorded/Tabbed by: David Rickard (2002)


This song is performed live by Barenaked Ladies quite often, and this is

the version I've got here. Its not neccessarily the same as George

Michael's version, but hey, I like it :-)


Guitar: I've seen Ed play this with one of his PRS guitars, so it calls

for a Humbucker, a dab of chorus and a nudge up on the gain maybe. You want

a warm sound for this song. Its capoed on the third fret.


Intro Riff. This is only played as the intro to the song.


Capo 3

Am7 Am7 Am7 Am7















Verse Chords:


Am7 A7sus2 Dm Dmadd1 Dm11 A7sus4











Am7 Amsus2 Dm Dmadd1

I feel so unsure,

Dm11 A7sus4 (once)

As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.


Am7 A7sus2

As the music dies...

Dm Dmadd1

Something in your eyes,



Calls to mind a silver screen,

A7sus4 (once)

And all those sad goodbyes.



Am7 Amsus2 Am7

I'm never gonna dance again,

Dm Dmadd1 Dm

Guilty feet have got no rhythm.


Though it's easy to pretend,


I know you're not a fool.


Am7 Amsus2 Am7

I should have no better than to cheat a friend,

Dm Dmadd1 Dm

And waste the chance that I'd been given.


So I'm never gonna dance again,

A7sus4 (once)

The way I danced with you.


INSTRUMENTAL (Play Chorus chords)


VERSE (Play Verse Chords, minus the Amsus2 and Dmadd1)

Time can never mend,

The careless whispers of a good friend.

To the heart and mind,

If your answer's kind...

There's no comfort in the truth,

Pain is all you'll find.




BRIDGE (Play to verse chords music Amsus2 and Dmadd1)

Tonite the music seems so loud,

I wish that we could lose the crowd.

Maybe it's better this way,

We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.


We could have been so good together,

We could have made this last forever...

But now, who's gonna dance with me?

Please stay.


Now that you're gone...

Now that you're gone...

Now that you're gone...

Was what I did so wrong?

So wrong that you had to leave me alone?




And thats about it!


Thanks to TheHYPO for help on the chords. I messed up big time on them first off.

Comments and suggestions?



This is an interpretation of an original song. I spent my time working on this,

so please don't rip me off.
