It's [C] nine o' - [G/B] clock on a [F/A] Saturday [C/G]
[F] The regular [C/E] crowd shuffles [D7] in [G]
There's an [C] old man [G/B] sitting [F/A] next to me [C/G]
Making [F] love to his [G7sus4] tonic and [C] gin
 
 C - G/B - F/A - C/G - F - G7sus4 - C - F/C 

He says, " [C] Son, can you [G/B] play me a [F/A] memory? [C/G]
I'm [F] not really [C/E] sure how it [D7] goes, [G]
But it's [C] sad and it's [G/B] sweet and I [F/A] knew it com - [C/G] plete

Now [C] John at the [G/B] bar is a [F/A] friend of mine [C/G]
He [F] gets me my [C/E] drinks for [D7] free [G]
And he's [C] quick with a [G/B] joke or a [F/A] light up your [C/G] smoke,
But there's [F] some place that's [G7sus4] he'd rather [C] be [F/C]
He says, " [C] Bill, I be - [G/B] lieve this is [F/A] killing me," [C/G]
As the [F] smile ran a - [C/E] way from his [D7] face [G]
"Well, I'm [C] sure that I [G/B] could be a [F/A] movie star [C/G]
If [F] I could get [G7sus4] out of this [C] place."
Oh, [Am] Laa la [Am/G] laa litty [D7/F#] daah, [Am/F] [-] [G] [-]

Now [C] Paul is a [G/B] real estate [F/A] novelist [C/G]
Who [F] never had [C/E] time for a [D7] wife [G]
And he's [C] talking to [G/B] Davy who's [F/A] still in the [C/G] Navy
And [F] probably [G7sus4] will be for [C] life
 
 C - G/B - F/A - C/G - F - G7sus4 - C - F/C 

And the [C] Waitress is [G/B] practicing [F/A] politics [C/G]
As the [F] businessmen [C/E] slowly get [D7] stoned [G]
Yes, they're [C] sharing a [G/B] drink they call [F/A] loneliness, [C/G]
But it's [F] better than [G7sus4] drinking a - [C] lone
Break:

And the [F] manager [C/E] gives me a [D7] smile [G]
'Cause he [C] knows that it's [G/B] me they've been [F/A] coming to [C/G] see
To for - [F] get about [G7sus4] life for a [C] while
[C] [-] [F/C]  
And the [C] piano [G/B] sounds like a [F/A] carnival [C/G]
And the [F] microphone [C/E] smells like a [D7] beer [G]
And they [C] sit at the [G/B] bar and put [F/A] bread in my [C/G] jar
And say, " [F] Man, what are [G7sus4] you doin' [C] here?"
Oh, [Am] Laa la [Am/G] laa litty [D7/F#] daah, [Am/F] [-] [G] [-]
