Piano Man chords
Billy Joel *

C G F CIt's nine o'clock on a Saturday
F C D7 GThe regular crowd shuffles in
C G F CThere's an old man sitting next to me
F G C GMaking love to his tonic and gin
C G F CHe says, "Son, can you play me a memory
F C D7 GI'm not really sure how it goes
C G F CBut it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
F G CWhen I wore a younger man's clothes."
Am D7la la la, di da da
Am D7 G F C G7La la, di di da da dum
C G F CSing us a song, you're the piano man
F C D7 GSing us a song tonight
C G F CWell, we're all in the mood for a melody
F G C GAnd you've got us all feeling alright
C G F CNow John at the bar is a friend of mine
F C D7 GHe gets me my drinks for free
C G F CAnd he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
F G C GBut there's some place that he'd rather be
C G F CHe says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
F C D7 GAs the smile ran away from his face
C G F C"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
F G CIf I could get out of this place"
Am D7la la la, di da da
Am D7 G F C G7La la, di di da da dum
Now Paul is a real estate novelist Who never had time for a wife And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy And probably will be for life And the waitress is practicing politics As the businessman slowly gets stoned Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness But it's better than drinking alone
C G F CSing us a song, you're the piano man
F C D7 GSing us a song tonight
C G F CWell, we're all in the mood for a melody
F G C GAnd you've got us all feeling alright
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday And the manager gives me a smile 'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see To forget about life for a while And the piano, it sounds like a carnival And the microphone smells like a beer And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar And say, "Man, what are you doing here?"
Am D7la la la, di da da
Am D7 G F C G7La la, di di da da dum
C G F CSing us a song, you're the piano man
F C D7 GSing us a song tonight
C G F CWell, we're all in the mood for a melody
F G C And you've got us all feeling alright
