Little Black Dress: Sara Bareilles

Little Black Dress: Sara Bareilles l Piano Diana



Sara Bareilles is a mega-talented musician. I appreciate her song writing abilities and enjoy her performance skills. Love Song and Manhattan are a few of my favorite songs. You can click on the links at the end of the post for the chord charts. Are you familiar with the artist and do you have a favorite choice? 

Here are the slash chords and mostly play block chords with some melody in the right hand.

Little Black Dress (Chords & Lyrics)


Words and Music by Sara Bareilles

Key: G
Time: 4/4  Moderately

Intro

G/D  //   //  Bm/D  //  //

G                                                      D/F#
Okay, I can see it now it's all the same thing


Just different wrapping around it


Dm/F                                                        C/E
No need to soften your words, they're still gonna hurt


Cm/Eb
So don't pull punches


G
I tried to be everything you'd ever want


        D/F#
And sometimes I even stood on my heart and stomped


Dm/F                                     C/E
Now I'm finally alone and dressed for the show


       Cm/Eb         Em
But going nowhere


                                  C          Cm    G
They don't need to see me crying


                                                D6
I'll get my little black dress on



And if I put on my favorite song


Em                                                  C
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone


                    Cm                      G
I'll get my little black dress on
                                                                                  D/F#
You came, lifted me up but then you dropped a hurricane


                                                        F
Now I'm fighting to find the ground again, to steady my feet


       C/E                               Cm/Eb
Get up off my knees and just remember


         G
That I am more than just somebody's puppet


D/F#   
I can find the cord and then I'll cut it


F                                                     C/E                           Cm/Eb
I stand a pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance


 G                                              D6
I'll get my little black dress on



And if I put on my favorite song


Em                                                 C
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone


Cm                                         G
I'll get my little black dress on


                                            D6
I got my little black dress on


                                                           Em
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong


                                                   Cm6
This doesn't have to be a sad song


                                                  Em
Not with my little black dress on


                                         C                                                      G
It's time to connect the dots and draw a different picture up

                                               D                                  Em
And paint it with the colors of everything I ever was

                                              C                                                G/D
Return to the scene of the crime, the day I let the music die


                                     D                                G
And rewrite the final lines cause this time I


                                               D6
I'll get my little black dress on


                                               Em
And if I put on my favorite song


                                                       C
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone


                   Cm                       G
I'll get my little black dress on


                                              D6
I got my little black dress on


                                                            Em
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong

                                                    Cm6
This doesn't have to be a sad song


                                                    G
Not with my little black dress on
