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 “The Bird” like the Bible

C

You know the man could blow an educated axe

F

He couldn’t see that Christie Lee was a woman

D G

Who didn’t 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 didn’t 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, that’s 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
