Bm-A-G-A (bass notes + chords) to round out the intro. Bm A G quick A going back to Bm Let's get the show on the road, babe At the curtain take a bow New Haven, just a rendezvous to take you to a Lover, who was then but never now And Susan played the lady Who called the players' songs Just a figurine of stagehand reveries Guess up-and-coming can't be that wrong Bm-A-E interlude x 2 Bm A G quick A before returning to Bm Let's get the show on the road, babe Spotlights on the stage Somehow it seems I've heard these words before Did you forget to turn the page? And remember what they told you About how the show goes on How can you come back, if you've never gone away? How can you sing without a song? Bm-A-E interlude x 2 Bm A And today's for sale Bm A G And it's all you can afford Bm A And by your own admission Bm A G The whole thing's got you bored Bm A And the Lord uses the good ones Bm A G And the bad ones use the Lord INTRO, etc again, with sax solo (sorry, I haven't had sax in a long time)... Bm A G quick A before Bm again Let's get the show on the road, babe Won't you take a look around One thing to remember When you're climbing to the top You'd better know the way back down I can't believe you'd really stumble But then I always knew you'd fall It seems so easy to say I knew you when I'd rather it was [sic] not at all Bm-A-E interlude x 2 Bm A And today's for sale Bm A G And it's all you can afford Bm A And by your own admission Bm A G The whole thing's got you bored Bm A And the Lord uses the good ones Bm A G And the bad ones use the Lord OUTRO picking:

The above tablature is somewhat simplified for 2 reasons: 1) Two guitars are used on the album ("Friends and Legends"). 2) I can't make out some of the quicker passing notes, so I've just left them out. Enjoy! Jim! "You don't have to have the intelligence jreese@leland.stanford.edu of a brain surgeon to play rock and roll." --Sting
