[G]I slept last [Fmaj7]night in a [Em]good hotel
I went [Am]shopping to[C]day for j[F]ew[C]els
The [G]wind rushed [Fmaj7]around the d[Em]irty town
And the [Am]children let [C]out from the s[F]ch[C]ools
I was [Am]standing on a noisy [G]corner
[C]Waiting for the [G]walking [F]gr[Em]een[D]
[G]Across the street he [Fmaj7]stood and he [Em]played real good
On his [Am]clairi[C]net for [F]fre[C]e
[G] [D] [F] [C] [G] [D] [F] [C]  
Now [G]me I [Fmaj7]play for [Em]fortune
And those [Am]velvet [C]curtain [F]cal[C]ls
I've got a [G]black limo[Fmaj7]usine and [Em]two ladies
Es[Am]corting me [C]to the [F]ha[C]lls
And I'll [Am]play If you have the [G]money
Or [C]if you're a [G]friend to [F]me[Em]-ee[D]-ee
[G]But the one man [Fmaj7]band by the [Em]quick lunch stand
He was [Am]playing real [C]good for [F]fr[C]ee
[G] [D] [F] [C] [G] [D] [F] [C]  
Well [G]Nobody [Fmaj7]stopped to [Em]hear him
Though he [Am]played so [C]sweet and [F]hi[C]gh
And they [G]knew he had [Fmaj7]never been on their [Em]TV screen
So they [Am]passed his [C]music [F]by[C]
Well I [Am]meant to go over and [G]ask for a song
Maybe [C]put on a [G]harmo[F]ny[Em] [D]
[G]I heard his [Fmaj7]refrain as the [Em]signal changed
He was still [Am]playing real [C]good for [F]fr[C]ee [Em]
