FIRST VERSE: 
    C      G           Am      C        
Its nine o’clock on a saturday      
    F         C         D        G          
The regular crowd shuffles in
           C      G         Am         C             
There’s an old man  sitting next to me          
        F          G         C      C
Making love to his tonic and gin 

C  G  Am  C  F  G  C  C  F  F

        C           G         Am     C           
He says son can you play me a memory    
     F          C           D      G
I’m not really sure how it goes
          C           G           Am           C    
But it’s sad and its sweet and I knew it complete 
     F        G             C      C
when I wore a younger man’s clothes 

Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA


CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

C G Am C F G C C F F C C F F

VERSE 2
     C          G            Am           C
Now John at the bar – he’s a friend of mine, 
   F          C          D    G
he gets me my drinks for free
         C            G          Am            C
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            F               G           C           C 
but there’s some place that he’d rather be 


        C      G               Am          C
He says bill I believe this is killing me,
         F          C           D      G
as the smile ran away from his face, 
         C           G           Am      C 
Well I’m sure that I could be a movie star,
      F         G          C     C
if I could get out of this place


Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA

VERSE 3
      C        G          Am       C
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
    F         C          D      G
who never had time for a wife
         C            G          Am           C 
And he’s talking with Davy who’s still in the navy
    F         G          C     C 
and probably will be for life

C G Am C F G C C F F 

        C           G          Am       C
And the waitress is practising politics
       F           C          D      G
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
            C         G           Am            C 
yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness 
        F           G        C     C 
but its better than drinking alone

PIANO SOLO


CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

VERSE 4
       C           G           Am       C
It’s a pretty good crowd for a saturday 
        F       C          D      G
And the manager gives me a smile
         C               G               Am        C
Cause he knows that it’s me they've been coming to see
   F            G          C     C
To forget about life for a while


        C     G             Am       C
And the piano sounds like a carnival 
        F          C             D      G
and the microphone smells like a beer
         C          G           Am          C        
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
        F            G         C     C
and say man what are you doing here? 


Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA



CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

The song is called "Piano Man." If you don't even know the title, there's NO WAY you should be posting the chords
