Christie Lee  Billy Joel

[C] Let me tell you a story[Am] ab[G]ou[F]t a woman and a ma-a-n
Maybe you will find fami[D]liar, maybe you won't unde[G]rstand
The man's name I don't rem[C]ember, he was always Joe to [Am]me-[G]e-[F]e
But I can't forget the w[G]om[C/G]an [G] [C/G] [G] she was always Christie [C]Lee
He was working in the n[C]ight club that's where he played the saxop[Am]ho-[G]o-[F]one
He used to fake the stock a[D]rrangements he left the customers a[G]lone
One night before the la[C]st song, about a quarter after thr[Am]ee-e[G]e-e[F]e
He saw her standing at the c[G]oa[C/G]t ch[G]ec[C/G]k, a[G]nd made his move on Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee, Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee Christie L[Am]ee-e[G]e-e[F]e[G] [C]
She was a nice piece of mus[C]ic, she had a rhythm all her [Am]o-o[G]-o[F]wn
He blew a solo like a bl[D]ind man, she really dug his sax[G]ophone
She wanted more than just an en[C]core, and he could play in every [Am]ke-[G]e-e[F]y
He left the stage and packed his a[G]lto, and took it home to Christie L[C]ee[C7]
Oh, I heard the m[F]an knew ?The Bird? like the Bible
You know the m[C]an could blow an educated axe
He couldn?t s[F]ee that Christie Lee was a woman
Who didn?t ne[D]ed another lover all she wa[G]nted was the sax
It tool a while for him to no[C]tice, it took a while for him to [Am]see-[G]ee-[F]ee
He was never in contr[G]ol here, it was always Christie Le[C]e
Christie Lee, Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee Christie [Am]Lee-[G]ee-[F]ee [G] [C] [C7]
Oh the m[F]an took a calculated gamble
Yes the m[C]an had the power to perform
But Christie Le[F]e was more than he knew how to handle
She didn?t ne[D]ed him as a man, all she wa[G]nted was the horn
They say that Joe became a wi[C]no, they say he always drinks a[Am]lo-o[G]o-o[F]ne
They say he stumbles like a b[D]lind man, they say he sold his saxo[G]phone
Even the band must face the m[C]usic, that?s what the moral is to [Am]me-e[G]e-e[F]e
The only time you hit the h[G]igh notes... is when you play for Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee, Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee Christie [Am]Lee-[G]ee-[F]ee[G] [C]
Christie Lee, Christie L[C]ee
Christie Lee Christie [Am]Lee-[G]ee-[F]ee[G] [C]
