Getting Closer  Billy Joel

I went searching for th[A]e truth[G]
But in my [Em]innocence I [A]found
All the con men and their [G]acrobats
Who [Em]stomped me in the [A]ground
If I count up their [G]percentages
I [Em]know they're getting [A]rich
But they haven't taken [G]everything
Those [Em]paybacks are a [A]b**ch
Though I've [C]lost quite a lot
I am [G]still in control
They can [C]keep what they've got
But they [A]can't have my soul
And if [D]I don't [G]have this [A]all worked [D]out
Still I'm getting [G]closer, [A]getting cl[D]oser
[D]I still have [G]far to [A]go no [Bm]doubt
But I'm [D]getting [G]closer, [A]getting [D]closer
What was [A]ripped off by [G]professionals
Is [Em]not all that it [A]seems
While I must live up to [G]contracts
I did [Em]not give up my [A]dreams
If I see it as [G]experience
It [Em]hasn't gone to [A]waste
Lately all the missing [G]pieces
Have been [Em]falling into [A]place
And if [C]I could go back and start [G]over somehow
I would [C]not change that much
Knowing [A]what I know now
Thought there [D]have been [G]sins
I [A]will [D]regret
Still I'm getting [G]closer, [A]getting [D]closer
I don't have [G]all the [A]answers [Bm]yet
But I'm [D]getting [G]closer, [A]getting [D]closer
SOLO:
G F A G (A could be Dm) (X4)
A G Em A (X4)
I'm a [A]mark for every [G]shyster
From [Em]Topanga to [A]Berlin
And I should have learned to [G]kick them out
As [Em]soon as they crawle[A]d in
So to every bank in [G]Switzerland
That [Em]stores my stolen [A]youth
I'm alright because [G]despite the laws
You [Em]cannot hide the [A]truth
And [C]although you will say
I am [G]still too naive
Well I [C]have not lost faith
In the [A]things I believe
And if [D]I don't [G]have a this [A]all worked [D]out
Still I'm getting [G]closer, [A]getting [D]closer
I still have [G]far to [A]go no [Bm]doubt
But I'm[D] still [G]getting [A]closer, [D]getting closer
