Barry Town  Steely Dan

[F#m]And though you're not my enemy, I like [C#m]things like th[D]ey used to be;  [C#m]                    [E]
And thou[A]gh you'd like some company, I'm standing[Bm7] by myself,          [D]       [C#m]           [Bm7]
Go and play wi[D]th someone else. [C#m]        [Bm7]


Chorus
I can see by [F#m]what you c[E]arry that yo[D]u came f[C#m]rom Barry Town.  [Bm7]                 [A]


[A]2.      Don't believe [Bm7]I'm taken in by stories I h[D]ave heard;  [E7]       [A]
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word.

[F#m]And don't think that I'm out of line for[C#m] speaking[D] for what i[C#m]s mine;                   [E]
I like t[A]o see you just fine, but lo[Bm7]oking at what you wear   [D]    [C#m]           [Bm7]
And the way you [D]cut you hair.     [C#m]      [Bm7]

Chorus

Interlude
[F]In the beginning we r[Am7]ecall the word was hurl[Bmaj9]ed; Barry Town people[F] got to be from          [Am7]
[Bmaj9]another world.

      [A]    3.    Leave me or [Bm7]I'll be just like the other[D]s that you m[E7]eet;   [A]
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street.

[F#m]            And don't you scream or make[C#m] a shout;[D] it's nothi[C#m]ng you can do about;        [E]
           [A] It was there where you cam[Bm7]e out, it's a special lac[D]k of[C#m] grace,    [Bm7]
           [D] I can see it on y[C#m]our fa[Bm7]ce.                  Chorus & repeat 3 x

D Em7 G A7 D
I`m not one to look behind, I know that times must change;
But over there in Barry town they do things very strange.
Bm F#m G Em7 A7
And though you`re not my enemy, I like things like they used to be;
D Em7 G Em7 Bb
And though you`d like some company I`m standing by myself
G Em7 Bb
Go play with someone else.

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barry Town

Don`t believe I`m taken in by stories I have heard;
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word.
And don`t think that I`m out of line for speaking out for what is mine;
I`d like to see you do just fine, but look at what you wear
And the way you cut your hair

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barry Town
Bb Dm7 Eb
In the beginning we recall that the world was hurled;
Barry Town people got to be from another world.

Leave me or I`ll be just like the others you will meet;
They won`t act as kindly if they see you on the street.
And don`t you scream or make a shout, it`s nothing you can do about;
It was where you came out, it`s a certain lack of grace,
I can see it in your face.

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barry Town
