An Innocent Man  Billy Joel

Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a c[Dm]hance of it opening up
[F]They hear a voice in the h[G]all outside
And hope that it just passes [C]by
[C]Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the a[Dm]nger of having been a fool
[F]They will not listen to a[G]nyone
So nobody tells them a l[C]ie
[Bb]I know you're only pro[C/F]tecting yourself
[Bb]I know you're thinking of s[F]omebody else
[G]Someone who hurt you
But [C]I'm not above making up for the love
You've been de[Dm]nying you could ever feel
[F]I'm not above doing a[G]nything
To restore your faith if I c[C]an
[C]Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they e[Dm]ver get a look at the young
[F]I'm only willing to [G]hear you cry
Because I am an innocent [C]man
I a[F]m an innocent man
Oh yes I [C]am
[C]Some people say they will never believe
Another pro[Dm]mise they hear in the dark
[F]Because they only r[G]emember too well
They heard somebody tell them bef[C]ore
[C]Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of t[Dm]aking a lover to bed
[F]Some people find that it's e[G]asier to hate
Than to wait anymor[C]e
[Bb]I know you don't want to [C]hear what I say
[Bb]I know you're gonna keep t[C]urning away
[G]But I've been there and if
[C]I can survive I can keep you alive
I'm not ab[Dm]ove going through it again
[F]I'm not above being c[G]ool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understan[C]d
[C]Some people run from a possible fight
Some people f[Dm]igure they can never win
[F]And although this is a f[G]ight I can lose
The accused is an innocent ma[C]n
I a[F]m an innocent man
Oh yes I a[C]m
An innocent man
[Bb]You know you only hurt yours[C]elf out of spite
[Bb]I guess you'd rather be a mar[F]tyr tonight
[G]That's your decision
[C]But I'm not below anybody I know
If there's a c[Dm]hance of resurrecting a love
[F]I'm not above going bac[G]k to the start
To find out where the heartache beg[C]an
[C]Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people ju[Dm]st accept the world as it is
[F]But I'm not willing to l[G]ay down and die
Because I am an innocent ma[C]n
I a[F]m an innocent man
Oh yes I a[C]m
An innocent man
