Billy Joel - Christie Lee chords

      
C Am G F Let me tell you a story about a woman and a ma-a-n
D G Maybe you will find familiar, maybe you won't understand
C Am G F The man's name I don't remember, he was always Joe to me-e-e
G C/G G C/G G C But I can't forget the woman she was always Christie Lee
C Am G F He was working in the night club that's where he played the saxopho-o-one
D G He used to fake the stock arrangements he left the customers alone
C Am G F One night before the last song, about a quarter after three-ee-ee
G C/G G C/G G C He saw her standing at the coat check, and made his move on Christie Lee
C Christie Lee, Christie Lee
Am G F G C Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee
C Am G F She was a nice piece of music, she had a rhythm all her o-o-own
D G He blew a solo like a blind man, she really dug his saxophone
C Am G F She wanted more than just an encore, and he could play in every ke-e-ey
G C C7 He left the stage and packed his alto, and took it home to Christie Lee
F Oh, I heard the man knew ďThe BirdĒ like the Bible
C You know the man could blow an educated axe
F He couldnít see that Christie Lee was a woman
D G Who didnít need another lover all she wanted was the sax
C Am G F It tool a while for him to notice, it took a while for him to see-ee-ee
G C He was never in control here, it was always Christie Lee
C Christie Lee, Christie Lee
Am G F G C C7 Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee
F Oh the man took a calculated gamble
C Yes the man had the power to perform
F But Christie Lee was more than he knew how to handle
D G She didnít need him as a man, all she wanted was the horn
C Am G F They say that Joe became a wino, they say he always drinks alo-oo-one
D G They say he stumbles like a blind man, they say he sold his saxophone
C Am G F Even the band must face the music, thatís what the moral is to me-ee-ee
G C The only time you hit the high notes... is when you play for Christie Lee
C Christie Lee, Christie Lee
Am G F G C Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee
C Christie Lee, Christie Lee
Am G F G C Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee
