Intro : E  A/E  E  A/E

AM7   
How 'bout a tear 
        G#m7
for the year of 1960
F#m7                      
I watched the fins 
       E        E7
of the Cadillac fall
AM7              G#m7                     
I remember Dad explained 
                 D   A - E
about the Berlin Wall

AM7                       
How 'bout a tear 
        G#m7
for the torment and the trouble
F#m7                    E     E7
That was brewing in the Asian way
AM7                      
I wore a smile 
         G#m7                D   A - E
like the faces that surround L.A.

D                  Ddim
In the city of the lost and found
C#m7               F#m7 F#m - E
It's hard to get a break
D                         Ddim
Hard to stop from getting turned around
C#m7                 F#7
And make the same mistakes

A               E/G#
My reputation's on the line
F#m7              E F#m7 - E/G#
The final day of '59
A                      E/G#
But like the sun, just watch me shine
  D  A-E
Today

AM7                       G#m7
How 'bout a cheer for the piano virtuoso
F#m7           E         E7
I practiced 61 minutes a day
AM7                     G#m7
I could never reach the keys
               D A-E
But it was all OK

AM7                       G#m7
How 'bout a cheer for the humor in my brother
F#m7                        E      E7
That could brighten up the darkest nights
AM7                       G#m7
It's just another sign of love
                  D    A - E
Whenever we would fight
      
D                        Ddim
It's all the same twenty years ago
C#m7          F#m7  F#m-E
As it is right now
D                  Ddim
Like a tour at the closing show
C#m7           F#7
When I take my bow

A               E/G#
My reputation's on the line
F#m7              E  F#m7 - E/G#
At the start of '79
A                      E/G#
But like the sun, just watch me shine
   D  A-E
Today
A                        E/G#
I've played this part so many times
F#m7               E  F#m7 - E/G#
Since the end of '59
A                      E/G#
But like the sun, just watch me shine
  D   A E  G D  D A (fade)
Today
