Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Piano Man  Billy Joel



It's [G]nine o'c[D]lock on a [Em]saturday
The regu[C]lar crowd shuffles [D]in
There's an [G]old m[D]an sitting [Em]next to me
Makin' [C]love to his [D]tonic and [G]gin
He says, "[G]son, can you p[D]lay me a [Em]memory?
I'm [C]not really sure how it [D]goes
But it's [G]sad and it's [D]sweet and i k[Em]new it complete
When [C]i wore a [D]younger man's [G]clothes"
[Em]La la la, de [C]de da
[Em]La la, de de [D]da da [D7]da
Chorus:
[G]Sing us a [D]song, you're the [Em]piano man
[C]Sing us a song [D]tonight
Well, we're [G]all in the [D]mood for a [Em]melody
And [C]you've got us [D]feelin' [G]alright

Now [G]john at the [D]bar is a [Em]friend of mine
He [C]gets me my drinks for [D]free
And he's [G]quick with a [D]joke or to [Em]light up your smoke
But there's [C]someplace that [D]he'd rather [G]be
He says, "[G]bill, i [D]believe this is [Em]killing me."
As the [C]smile ran away from his [D]face
"well i'm [G]sure that i [D]could be a [Em]movie star
If [C]i could get [D]out of this [G]place"
Oh, [Em]la la la, de de [C]da
[Em]La la, de de [D]da da [D7]da

Now [G]paul is a [D]real estate [Em]novelist
Who [C]never had time for a [D]wife
And he's [G]talkin' with [D]davy who's [Em]still in the navy
And [C]probably [D]will be for [G]life
And the [G]waitress is [D]practicing [Em]politics
As the [C]businessmen slowly get [D]stoned
Yes, they're [G]sharing a [D]drink they call [Em]loneliness
But it's [C]better than [D]drinkin' [G]alone
Chorus

It's a [G]pretty good [D]crowd for a [Em]saturday
And the [C]manager gives me a [D]smile
'cause he [G]knows that it's [D]me they've been [Em]comin' to see
To [C]forget about [D]life for a [G]while
And the [G]piano, it [D]sounds like a [Em]carnival
And the [C]microphone smells like a [D]beer
And they [G]sit at the [D]bar and put [Em]bread in my jar
And say, "[C]man, what are [D]you doin' [G]here?"

Oh, [Em]la la la, de de [C]da
[Em]La la, de de [D]da da [D7]da
Chorus

END
