Big Man on Mulberry Street  Billy Joel

[G7] Why can't I[Bbmaj7] lay low[C/F]
[G7] Why can't I [Bbmaj7]say what I [C/F]mean
[G7] Why don't I[Bbmaj7] stay h[C/F]ome
[G7] And get myself [Bbmaj7]into some [C/F]boring rou[Em7]tine
[Em7] Why can't I [A]calm [Bm7]down
[Em7] Why is it [A]always a [Bm7]fight
[Em7] I can't get [A]unw[Bm7]ound
[Em7] Why do I [Am]throw myself [D9sus4]into the [G7]night[F13]
(G7 F13) x 3
[G7] I'm on the [Bbmaj7]outside[C/F]
[G7] I don't fit [Bbmaj7]into the [C/F]groove
[G7] Now I ain't a[Bbmaj7] bad guy[C/F]
[G7] So tell me [Bbmaj7]what am I [C/F]trying to [Em7]prove
[Em7] Why can't I [A]cool [Bm7]out
[Em7] Why don't I [A]button my [Bm7]lip
[Em7] Why do I [A]lash [Bm7]out
[Em7] Why is it [Am]I always [D9sus4]shoot from the [Dm]hip
[Dm]I cruise from Houston to [Dmaj7/2+]canal street
A misfit and a [Dm7]rebel[Bm7b5]
[Dm] I see the winds talking to them[Dmaj7/2+]selves
And I can under[Dm7]stand[Bm7b5] [Em7/4-]
[Am7] Why is it every time I go [Emaj7]out
I always seem to get in [C6]trouble[F#m7b5]
[Am7] I guess I made an impression on [Am/D]somebody
North of Hester and south of [G7]grand[F13]
(G7 F13) x 3
[G7] And so in my[Bbmaj7] small [C/F]way
[G7] I'm a big man on [Bbmaj7]Mulberry [C/F]street
[G7] I don't mean[Bbmaj7] all da[C/F]y
[G7] Only at [Bbmaj7]night when I'm [C/F]light on my [Em7]feet
[Em7] What else have [A]I g[Bm7]ot
[Em7] That I'd be [A]trying to [Bm7]hide
[Em7] Maybe a [A]blind [Bm7]spot
[Em7] I haven't [Am]seen from the [D9sus4]sensitive [Dm]side
[Dm] [Dmaj7/2+] [Dm7] [Bm7b5]  
[Dm] [Dmaj7/2+] [Dm7] [Bm7b5] [Em7/4-]  
[Am7] [Emaj7] [C6] [F#m7b5]  
[Am7] [Am/D]  
(G7 F13) x 4
[G7] But you know in my[Bbmaj7] own he[C/F]art
[G7] I'm a big man on [Bbmaj7]Mulberry [C/F]street
[G7] I play the[Bbmaj7] whole [C/F]part
[G7] I leave a [Bbmaj7]big tip with [C/F]every re[Em7]ceipt
[Em7] I'm so ro[A]man[Bm7]tic
[Em7] I'm such a [A]passionate [Bm7]man
[Em7] Sometimes I [A]pa[Bm7]nic
[Em7] What if no[Am]body finds [D9sus4]out who I [G7]am[F13]
[(G7]Repea[F13)]t and Fade out
