PIANO MAN from Piano Man


INTRO:  C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/E  D  G
        C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/G
        C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7
        C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7


     C      C/B        Am      Am/G
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
    F       F/E            D  G
The regular crowd shuffles in
           C      C/B      Am        Am/G
There's an old man sitting next to me
       F           F/G       C
Makin' love to his tonic and gin


HARMONICA:  C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  G
            C  F


         C            C/B       Am     Am/G
He says, Son, can you play me a memory?
    F          F/E         D   G
I'm not really sure how it goes
         C            C/B         Am          Am/G
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
     F        F/G           C
When I wore a younger man's clothes


Am    Am/G      Am/F#  F
La la la, de de da
Am Am/G      D7    G  G/F  G/E  G/D
La la, de de da da da


CHORUS 1:
C         C/B              Am       Am/G
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
F         F/E    D    G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          C/B        Am    Am/G
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    F             F/G       C
And you've got us feeling alright


HARMONICA:  C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/G  
            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7
            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7
            

    C           C/B      Am            Am/G
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
   F          F/E        D   G
He gets me my drinks for free
         C            C/B        Am            Am/G
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            F               F/G         C  F
But there's some place that he'd rather be

         C         C/B           Am        Am/G
He says, Bill, I believe this is killing me
       F          F/E          D   G
As the smile ran away from his face
         C           C/B        Am        Am/G
Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
   F           F/G         C
If I could get out of this place


    Am    Am/G      Am/F#  F
Oh, la la la, de de da
Am Am/G      D7    G  G/F  G/E  G/D
La la, de de da da da


    C         C/B         Am      Am/G
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
    F         F/E        D   G
Who never had time for a wife
         C            C/B        Am           Am/G
And he's talking with Davy who's still in the navy
    F        F/G         C   
And probably will be for life


HARMONICA:  C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  G
            C  F


        C           C/B        Am      Am/G
And the waitress is practicing politics
       F           F/E        D     G
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
             C         C/B             Am        Am/G
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
         F           F/G       C
But it's better than drinking alone


SOLO:  Am  Am/G  Am/F#  F
       Am  Am/G  Am/F#  F
       Am  Am/G  Am/F#  F
       G  G/F  G/E  G/D


CHORUS 2


HARMONICA:  C  C/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/G  
            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7
            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7


       C           C/B         Am      Am/G
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
        F       F/E        D    G
And the manager gives me a smile
          C               C/B             Am        Am/G
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
   F            F/G        C    F
To forget about life for a while

        C         C/B           Am      Am/G
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
        F          F/E           D   G
And the microphone smells like a beer
         C          C/B         Am          Am/G
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
         F             F/G       C
And say, Man, what are you doing here?


    Am    Am/G      Am/F#  F
Oh, la la la, de de da
Am Am/G      D7    G  G/F  G/E  G/D
La la, de de da da da


CHORUS 3

            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7
            C  F  G  F F/E* Dm7  C
