Only A Fool Would Say That
By Steely Dan (Becker/Fagen)
Off the album "Can't Buy a Thrill"
Transcribed by Joe Hankin (wetzil@hotmail.com)

Intro: Dm7 C/C6 2x

N.C. Dm7
A world become one of salads and sun
 C/C6
Only a fool would say that
 Dm7
A boy with a plan; a natural man
 C/C6
Wearin' a white Stetson hat
 AmF
 Unhand that gun begone
 Em7Dm7
 There's no one to fire upon
 Dm7Am
If he's holding it high, he's telling a lie

(Chorus:)
 Dm7
I heard it was you
 AmAm/GD/F#
Talkin' 'bout a world where all is free
 F
It just couldn't be
 CC6
And only a fool would say that    

 Dm7
The man in the street, draggin' his feet
 C/C6
Don't wanna hear the bad news
 Dm7
Imagine your face there in his place
 C/C6
Standin' inside his brown shoes
 AmF
 You do his nine to five,
 Em7Dm7
 Drag yourself home half-alive
 Dm7Am
And there on the screen, a man with a dream  

(Chorus)

 E7sus4E7AmAm/GAm/FAm/E
 Anybody on the street has murder in his eyes    
 DmEAmDFC/C6
You'll feel no pain, and you're younger than you realize   
 Dm7
Only a fool would say that
 AmAm/GAm/FAm/EDm7
Only a foooooooooooooooooool

(Guitar Solo: Dm7 Am7 Em7 Dm7 C6)

 Dm7
I heard it was you
 AmAm/GD/F#
Talkin' 'bout a world where all is free
 F
It just couldn't be
 CC6
And only a fool would say that
 Dm7
Only a fool would say that
 FC6
Only a fool would say that

As you can see, it's really straightforward and has simple chord
changes. And questions, comments or corrections, e-mail me at
wetzil@hotmail.com. I don't think I left out any chord shapes (they're
pretty simple anyway), but email me with questions.
