        D5                                           
Well it    didn't feel like Sunday
D5                                                   
   Didn't feel like June
        [ch]D5/G[/ch]                                           
When he       met his silent partner
        [ch]D5/G[/ch]                D5                             
In that       lonely corner     room


     F5                 D5                               
That     overlooked the     marquee
       F5                D5                              
Of the     plaza all-a -     dult
       [ch]A7/E[/ch]                                            
And he       was not lookin' for romance
     Gadd9          [ch]G9/F[/ch]           D5        D5                      
Just        someone       he could     trust 
       F5                    D5                           
And it     wasn't no way to     carry on
   F5                   D5                               
It     wasn't no way to     live
              [ch]A7/E[/ch]                                      
But he could        put up with it for a little while
        Gadd9                   [ch]Gadd9/F[/ch]        D5                    
He was        workin' on some -          thing     big

D5                                                   
   Speedball rang the night clerk
        D5                                            
Said, "    Send me up a drink"
         [ch]D5/G[/ch]                                           
Now the       night clerk said, "It's Sunday man
[ch]D5/G[/ch]                        D5                             
      Wait a minute, let me     think"


           F5                    D5                      
"There' a     little place out -     side of town
F5                       D5                              
   Might still have some     wine"
[ch]A7/E[/ch]                                                   
     Speedball said, "Forget it 
      Gadd9          [ch]Gadd9/F[/ch]           D5                            
Can I        have an           outside     line?"
        F5                   D5                           
And it     wasn't no way to     carry on
   F5                   D5                               
It     wasn't no way to     live
              [ch]A7/E[/ch]                                      
But he could        put up with it for a little while
       Gadd9                    [ch]Gadd9/F[/ch]        D5

       D5                                            
It was     Monday when the day maids
D5                                                   
    Found the still made bed
[ch]D5/G[/ch]

         D5                    D5                        
That lay     stacked up at the     head


    F5                         D5                        
And     one said, "I know I've     seen his face, 
  F5                D5                                   
I     wonder who he     is"
        [ch]A7/E[/ch]                                           
And the       other said, "Probably it's just another clown
Gadd9                     [ch]Gadd9/F[/ch]         D5                          
       Workin' on some -           thing     big"
       F5                   D5                           
And it     wasn't no way to     carry on
   F5                   D5
