All of My Friends Were There  The Kinks

Capo 1st fret
[E]My big day, it was the biggest day of my l[A]ife
[F#m]It was the summit of [A]my long career
But [E]I felt so down, and I d[A]rank too much beer
And my [F#m]manager said that I s[A]hould not appear
I walked out onto the stage and started to speak
The first night I've missed for a couple of years
I explained to the crowed and they started to jeer
And just when I wanted no one to be there
A[E]ll of my fr[E7]iends were t[A]her[A/G#]e[F#m]
[F#m/E] [D] [D/C#] 
N[Bm7/A]ot just my friends, but their best friends too
[G#]All of my f[G#7]riends were t[C#7]here to s[F#]tand and st[B]are
[B7] [E] [E7] [A] 
S[A/G#]ay wha[F#m]t they may, all of their friends need not stare
[F#m/E] [D] [D/C#] 
T[Bm7/A]hose who laughed were not friends anyway
[G#]All of my f[G#7]riends were th[C#7]ere to st[F#]and and st[B]are
Days went by, I walked around dressed in a disguise
I wore a mustache and I parted my hair
And gave the impression that I did not care
But oh, the embarrassment, oh, the dispair
Came the day, helped with a few last glasses of gin
I nervously mounted the stage once again
Got through my performance and no one complained
Thank God I can go back to normal again
I went to that old cafe
Where I had been in much happier days
And all of my friends were there, and no one cared
Say what they may, all of my friends were there
Not just my friends, but their best friends too
All of my friends were there, now I don't care
