Billy Joel – Everybody Loves You Now chords

This song is originally from Billy's first solo album, Cold Spring Harbor, released
November 1971. A fantastic live version of this song is on Songs In The Attic, Billy Joel's
first live album, which was recorded in June - July 1980 during the Glass Houses tour 
and was released September 10, 1981. Songs In The Attic features songs from Cold Spring
Harbor in a better form, since Billy's first album was sped up in studio and he "sounded 
like a chipmunk." He wasn't happy with the sound of the album, so Songs In The Attic 
was a way to make it better and sound more raw and personal.

C   F  x4

C DmBaby all the lights are turned on you
F CNow you're in the center of the stage
C DmEverything revolves on what you do
F CAh, you are in your prime; you've come of age
Dm F GAnd you can always have your way somehow
F G CBut everybody loves you now
C DmYou can walk away from your mistakes
F CYou can turn your back on what you do
C DmJust a little smile is all it takes
F CYeah, you can have your cake and eat it too
Dm F GLoneliness will get to you somehow
F G CBut everybody loves you now
Bb F CAh, they all want your white body
Bb F CAnd they await your reply
Bb F C C (B)
AmAh, but between you and me and the Staten Island ferry
G F#dim Fm So do I
C DmAll the people want to know your name
F CSoon there will be lines outside your door
C DmFeelings do not matter in your game
F CYeah, 'cause nothing's gonna touch you anymore
Dm F GSo your life is only living anyhow
F G CAnd everybody loves you now
C DmClose your eyes when you don't want to see
F CStay at home when you don't want to go
C DmOnly speak to those who will agree
F CYeah, and close your mind when you don't want to know
Dm F GYou have lost you innocence somehow
F CBut everybody loves you now
Bb F CAh, you know that nothing lasts forever
Bb F CAnd it's all been done before
Bb F C AmAh, but you ain't got the time to go to Cold Spring Harbor
G F#dim FmNo more
C DmSee how all the people gather 'round
F CHey, isn't it a thrill to see them crawl?
C DmKeep your eyes ahead and don't look down
F CYeah, and lock yourself inside your sacred wall
Dm F GThis is what you wanted; ain't you proud?
F G C'Cause everybody loves you now
This is a very fun song to play, just like all of Billy Joel's songs. The man's a hit-maker. Stay groovy and keep on rockin'.
