Razor Boy  Steely Dan

[F#m]I hear you are singing a s[D]ong of the p[A]ast; I [G]see no tears
[F#m]I know that you know that it m[D]ay be the l[A]ast for m[G]any years
[G]You'd gamble or give a[A]nything to be in wi[D]th the better[A] half  [G]
[G]But how many friend[A]s must I have to begin [D]with to make [A]you laugh [G]
[Dm]    [G]    [Dm]    [G]   [F]                    
[A]Will you still have a song to si[B]ng when
The raz[D]or boy comes and takes your fancy t[F#m]hings away?      [E]  [F#m]
[F#m]Will you still be sin[C#m]ging it on that co[D]ld and wi[C#m]ndy da[E]y?     [D]  [E]
[F#m]You know that the coming is so close[D] at hand, you[A] feel all [G]right           [F#m]
[F#m]I guess only women in cages c[D]an stand th[A]is kind of[G] night
[G]I guess only w[A]omen in cages can pla[D]y down the thi[A]ngs they los[G]e
[G]You think no to[A]morrow will come when you l[D]ay down you ca[A]n't r[G]efuse
[Dm]   [G]  [Dm]   [G]  [F]                          

(Solo: 1st half of verse chords)

[G]I guess only w[A]omen in cages can p[D]lay down the th[A]ings they l[G]ose
[G]You think no to[A]morrow will come when you[D] lay down you[A] can't[G] refuse

[Dm]   [G]  [Dm]   [G]  [F]                          

(Ending: F#m D A)

This should be pretty close to accurate. I welcome any questions, comments
or corrections: email me at I just play the chords in
the first position: the F#m is 244222 and the C#m is x46654. You have to
put a capo on the first fret to p lay with the record, but otherwise the
song is very straightforward.
