Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Movin Out  Billy Joel

[Dm]Anthony works in the [Gm]grocery store
[C]savin' his pennies for [F]someday
[Dm]Mama Leone left a [Gm]note on the door,
she said [C]"Sonny, move out to the [F]country"
[Dm]workin' too hard can give you a [Gm]heart attack
[Bb]you ought to know by [C]now
[Dm]who needs a house out in [Gm]Hackensack?
Is [C]that what you get with your [F]money?
It [Bb]seems such a waste of [C]time
[C7]if [A]that's what it's all a[Dm]bout
if [Bb]that's movin' up then [A7]I'm movin' [Dm]out.
[Dm]Seargent O'Leary is walkin'[Gm] the beat
[C]at night he becomes [F]a bartender
[Dm]he works at Mister [Gm]Cacciatore's down on Sulliven Street
[C]across from the medical[F] center
[Dm]he's tradin' in his Chevy for [Gm]a Cadillac
[Bb]you ought to know by [C]now
[Dm]and if he can't drive with a [Gm]broken back
[C]at least he can polish the [F]fenders.
[Bb]It seems such awaste of [C]time
[C7]if [A]that's what it's all [Dm]about
[Bb]if that's movin' up then [A7]I'm movin'[Dm] out. I'[Gm7]m movin' out[C7]  M[F]m... Oo.. O[Dm]o. Uh-h[Gm7] uh Mm-H[C7]m[F]
Y[Dm] ou should never argue with a cr[G]azy mind
y[Gm7]ou ought to know by n[C]ow
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.

It would have been nice to have the chords on the rest of the song too. Besides that I thought that the song was pretty good.
