Billy Joel – An Innocent Man chords

CSome people stay far away from the door
DmIf there's a chance of it opening up
F GThey hear a voice in the hall outside
CAnd hope that it just passes by
CSome people live with the fear of a touch
DmAnd the anger of having been a fool
F GThey will not listen to anyone
CSo nobody tells them a lie
Bb C/FI know you're only protecting yourself
Bb FI know you're thinking of somebody else
GSomeone who hurt you
CBut I'm not above making up for the love
Dm You've been denying you could ever feel
F G I'm not above doing anything
CTo restore your faith if I can
CSome people see through the eyes of the old
Dm Before they ever get a look at the young
F G I'm only willing to hear you cry
C Because I am an innocent man
FI am an innocent man
C Oh yes I am
CSome people say they will never believe
DmAnother promise they hear in the dark
F GBecause they only remember too well
CThey heard somebody tell them before
CSome people sleep all alone every night
DmInstead of taking a lover to bed
F GSome people find that it's easier to hate
CThan to wait anymore
Bb CI know you don't want to hear what I say
Bb CI know you're gonna keep turning away
GBut I've been there and if
CI can survive I can keep you alive
DmI'm not above going through it again
F GI'm not above being cool for a while
CIf you're cruel to me I'll understand
CSome people run from a possible fight
DmSome people figure they can never win
F GAnd although this is a fight I can lose
CThe accused is an innocent man
FI am an innocent man
COh yes I am
An innocent man
Bb CYou know you only hurt yourself out of spite
Bb FI guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
GThat's your decision
CBut I'm not below anybody I know
DmIf there's a chance of resurrecting a love
F GI'm not above going back to the start
CTo find out where the heartache began
CSome people hope for a miracle cure
DmSome people just accept the world as it is
F GBut I'm not willing to lay down and die
CBecause I am an innocent man
FI am an innocent man
COh yes I am
An innocent man
