Hopefully it's all right.

     G       D         Em
It's nine o'clock on a saturday
        C                  A    
The regular crowd shuffles in
           G    D          Em            
There's an old man sitting next to me
       C           D         G
Makin' love to his tonic and gin
          G             D        Em
He says, "son, can you play me a memory?
    C                      A
I'm not really sure how it goes
         G            D            Em
But it's sad and it's sweet and i knew it complete
     C        D             G
When i wore a younger man's clothes"

Em           D
La la la, de de da
Em           D     G
La la, de de da da da

G         D                Em
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C              A
Sing us a song tonight
            G          D          Em
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    C             D       G
And you've got us feelin' alright

    G           D        Em
Now john at the bar is a friend of mine
   C                     A
He gets me my drinks for free
         G            D          Em
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            C              D           G
But there's someplace that he'd rather be
          G       D               Em
He says, "bill, i believe this is killing me."
       C                       A
As the smile ran away from his face
          G           D          Em
"well i'm sure that i could be a movie star
   C           D           G
If i could get out of this place"
    Em              D
Oh, la la la, de de da
Em           D     G
La la, de de da da da

    G         D           Em
Now paul is a real estate novelist
    C                    A
Who never had time for a wife
         G            D          Em
And he's talkin' with davy who's still in the navy
    C        D           G
And probably will be for life

        G           D          Em
And the waitress is practicing politics
       C                      A
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
             G         D               Em
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
         C           D        G
But it's better than drinkin' alone


       G           D           Em
It's a pretty good crowd for a saturday
        C                  A
And the manager gives me a smile
          G               D               Em
'cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
   C            D          G
To forget about life for a while
        G         D             Em
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
        C                        A
And the microphone smells like a beer
         G          D           Em
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
          C             D         G
And say, "man, what are you doin' here?"

    Em              D
Oh, la la la, de de da
Em           D     G
La la, de de da da da
