Subject: CRD: Movin Out by Billy Joel


Movin' out


written and performed by Billy Joel

from "The Stranger", 1977

transcribed by Peter Eybert



Dm Gm

Anthony works in the grocery store


savin' his pennies for someday

Dm Gm

Mama Leone left a note on the door,


she said "Sonny, move out to the country"

Dm Gm

workin' too hard can give you a heart attack

Bb C

you ought to know by now

Dm Gm

who needs a house out in Hackensack?


Is that what you get with your money?

Bb C

It seems such a waste of time

C7 A Dm

if that's what it's all about

Bb A7 Dm

if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out.


Seargent O'Leary is walkin' the beat

at night he becomes abartender

he works at Mister Cacciatore's down

on Sulliven Street

across from the medical center

he's tradin' in his Chevy for a Cadillac

you ought to know by now

and if he can't drive with a broken back

at least he can polish the fenders.

It seems such awaste of time

if that's what it's all about

if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out.


You should never argue with a crazy mind

you ought to know by now

you can pay Uncle Sam with the overtime

is that all you get for your money?

It seems such awaste of time

if that's what it's all about

if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out.
