F/C Cmaj7 {1,2,3,4 G11}

Now Paul at the bar hes a freind of mine, he gets me my drinks for free

And hes quick with a joke and a light of your smoke but theres some place that

hed rather be

He says bill i beilive this is killing me as the smile ran away from his face

Well im sure that I could be a movie star if I could get out of this place


Now Paul is a real estate novelist who never had time for a wife

And hes talking with Davy whos still in the navy and probably will be for life

And the waitress is practising politics As the businessmen slowly get stoned

yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness but its better than drinking



its a pretty good crowd for a saturday And the manager gives me a smile

Cause he knows that its me they've been coming to see To forget about life for

a while

And the piano sounds like a carnival and the microphone smells like a beer

And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar and say man what are you doing




Ive also got stairway to heaven somwhere but i didnt bother because it was

in 160 column format and is obviously not really needed


hmm piano man didint seem to work.... post soon
