Razor Boy
By Steely Dan (Becker/Fagen)
Transcribed by Joe Hankin
Off the album "Countdown to Ecstasy"

Capo 1

F#m                       D           A      G
I hear you are singing a song of the past; I see no tears 
F#m                           D          A        G
I know that you know that it may be the last for many years 
G		      A                  D            A      G
You'd gamble or give anything to be in with the better half 
G		   A                      D            A         G
But how many friends must I have to begin with to make you laugh 

Dm  G   Dm  G  F

A        			B	
Will you still have a song to sing when 
       D                                  F#m              E F#m
The razor boy comes and takes your fancy things away?
F#m                  C#m               D        C#m   E      D E
Will you still be singing it on that cold and windy day? 

F#m				    D            A         G               F#m
You know that the coming is so close at hand, you feel all right 
F#m			     D          A         G        
I guess only women in cages can stand this kind of night 
G             A            	   D             A           G
I guess only women in cages can play down the things they lose 
G              A                          D             A    G
You think no tomorrow will come when you lay down you can't refuse 

Dm G Dm G F


[Solo: 1st half of verse chords]

G             A                  D              A          G
I guess only women in cages can play down the things they lose 
G              A                       	D            A     G
You think no tomorrow will come when you lay down you can't refuse 

Dm G Dm G F


[Ending: F#m D A]

This should be pretty close to accurate. I welcome any questions, comments
or corrections: email me at I just play the chords in
the first position: the F#m is 244222 and the C#m is x46654. You have to
put a capo on the first fret to p lay with the record, but otherwise the
song is very straightforward.
