Bm-A-G-A (bass notes + chords) to round out the intro.

Bm A G quick A going back to Bm
Let's get the show on the road, babe
At the curtain take a bow
New Haven, just a rendezvous to take you to a
Lover, who was then but never now
And Susan played the lady
Who called the players' songs
Just a figurine of stagehand reveries
Guess up-and-coming can't be that wrong

Bm-A-E interlude x 2

Bm A G quick A before returning to Bm
Let's get the show on the road, babe
Spotlights on the stage
Somehow it seems I've heard these words before
Did you forget to turn the page?
And remember what they told you
About how the show goes on
How can you come back, if you've never gone away?
How can you sing without a song?

Bm-A-E interlude x 2

 BmA
 And today's for sale

 BmAG
And it's all you can afford

 BmA
And by your own admission

 BmAG
The whole thing's got you bored

 BmA
And the Lord uses the good ones

 BmAG
And the bad ones use the Lord

INTRO, etc again, with sax solo (sorry, I haven't had sax in a long time)...

Bm A G quick A before Bm again
Let's get the show on the road, babe
Won't you take a look around
One thing to remember
When you're climbing to the top
You'd better know the way back down
I can't believe you'd really stumble
But then I always knew you'd fall
It seems so easy to say I knew you when
I'd rather it was (sic) not at all

Bm-A-E interlude x 2

 BmA
 And today's for sale

 BmAG
And it's all you can afford

 BmA
And by your own admission

 BmAG
The whole thing's got you bored

 BmA
And the Lord uses the good ones

 BmAG
And the bad ones use the Lord

The above tablature is somewhat simplified for 2 reasons:
1) Two guitars are used on the album ("Friends and Legends").
2) I can't make out some of the quicker passing notes, so I've just left them
out.

Enjoy!
