#1.
E                     D   A      E
When you see some mud up..on the ground..
E       D           A                   E     E A D A
you lay down so she don`t have to walk around.
    E                           D    A   E
You think that will protect her from the rain..
E          D      A              E    E A D A
But you`ll never, ever, stop the pain.

CHORUS:
E   A                       Bm        A
She walks all over you, she knows she can..
A                 C  G C   C                 D   C D..E
You`re the carpet man......you`re the carpet man.

#2.
E                               D      A    E
You take such care to keep that girl`s feet clean..
E               D   A          E     E A D
like she`s some ki..nd of figurine.
E                                 D   A   E
The world`s so far below her it`s not her scene..
E     D        A              E     E D A
she depends on you to stand between.

CHORUS:
E   A                       Bm        A
She walks all over you, she knows she can..
A                 C  G C   C                 D   C D..G
You`re the carpet man......you`re the carpet man.

BRIDGE:
G                                D        G             D
I would think you`d get tired of hurting, every now and then.
D    G                  D                       G              A
It`s lonely down there, that`s for certain, and carpets do get thin.

E A D A  (x2)

#3.
E                               D      A  E
And that`s when they have to be thrown a..way.
E                  D         A                E
That`s what she`ll say to herself, some sunny day.
E   D      A     E                           D      A   E
And she`ll say, 'Come to my wedding,' and of course you do.
E       D                  A               E   E A D A
And the Groom and her will have a dance on you.

CHORUS:
E           A                        Bm        A           
And they'll Waltz all over you, they know they can..
A                 C  G C    C                 D   C D
You`re the carpet man.......you`re the carpet man.

E A D A  (x2)
