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.

 

 

 

Intro:

C F x4

 

C Dm

Baby all the lights are turned on you

F C

Now you're in the center of the stage

C Dm

Everything revolves on what you do

F C

Ah, you are in your prime; you've come of age

 

Dm F G

And you can always have your way somehow

F G C

But everybody loves you now

 

[Intro]

 

C Dm

You can walk away from your mistakes

F C

You can turn your back on what you do

C Dm

Just a little smile is all it takes

F C

Yeah, you can have your cake and eat it too

 

Dm F G

Loneliness will get to you somehow

F G C

But everybody loves you now

 

Bb F C

Ah, they all want your white body

Bb F C

And they await your reply

Bb F C C (B)

Am

Ah, but between you and me and the Staten Island ferry

G F#dim Fm

So do I

 

C Dm

All the people want to know your name

F C

Soon there will be lines outside your door

C Dm

Feelings do not matter in your game

F C

Yeah, 'cause nothing's gonna touch you anymore

 

Dm F G

So your life is only living anyhow

F G C

And everybody loves you now

 

C Dm

Close your eyes when you don't want to see

F C

Stay at home when you don't want to go

C Dm

Only speak to those who will agree

F C

Yeah, and close your mind when you don't want to know

 

Dm F G

You have lost you innocence somehow

F C

But everybody loves you now

 

Bb F C

Ah, you know that nothing lasts forever

Bb F C

And it's all been done before

Bb F C Am

Ah, but you ain't got the time to go to Cold Spring Harbor

G F#dim Fm

No more

 

C Dm

See how all the people gather 'round

F C

Hey, isn't it a thrill to see them crawl?

C Dm

Keep your eyes ahead and don't look down

F C

Yeah, and lock yourself inside your sacred wall

 

Dm F G

This 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'.
