Uptown Girl

Billy Joel

 DGDEmA
 D
 Uptown girl
 GD
 She's been living in her uptown world
 EmAD
 I bet she never had a backstreet guy
 GD
 I bet her mama never told her why

 EmAD
 I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
 GD
 She's been living in her white bread world
 EmAD
 As long as anyone with hot blood can
 GD
 And now she's looking for a downtown man
 EmA
 That's what I am

 BbGm
 And when she knows what
 CmF
She wants from her time
 BbGm
 And when she wakes up
 CmF
And makes up her mind

 GEm
 She'll see I'm not so tough
 Am
 Just because
 AD
 I'm in love with an uptown girl

 GD
 You know I've seen her in her uptown world
 EmAD
 She's getting tired of her high class toys
 GD
 And all her presents from her uptown boys
 EmA
 She's got a choice

 D
 Uptown girl
 GD
 You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
 EmAD
 But maybe someday when my ship comes in
 GD
 She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
 EmA
 And then I'll win

 BbGm
 And when she's walking
 CmF
She's looking so fine
 BbGm
 And when she's talking
 CmF
She'll say that she's mine

 GEm
 She'll say I'm not so tough
 Am
 Just because
 A
 I'm in love

 D
With an uptown girl
 GD
 She's been living in her white bread world
 EmAD
 As long as anyone with hot blood can
 GD
 And now she's looking for a downtown man
 EmA
 That's what I am

 E
 Uptown girl
 AE
 She's my uptown girl
 F#mB
You know I'm in love
 E
With an uptown girl
 AE
 My uptown girl
 F#mB
You know I'm in love
 E
With an uptown girl
 AE
 My uptown girl
