"Barry Town" by Walter Becker & Donald Fagen (Steely Dan)

	A                      Bm7                         D            E7                 A ....
1.	I'm not one to look behind, I know that times,  must change,
      		      Bm7                    D            E7                 A....
But over there in Barry Town they do things very strange.
F#m                                    C#m           D               C#m                 E
And though you're not my enemy, I like things like they used to be;
	A                                       Bm7                  D      C#m        Bm7		 
And though you'd like some company, I'm standing by myself,
	      D                C#m     Bm7
Go and play with someone else.


Chorus
             F#m       E           D       C#m              Bm7              A
I can see by what you carry that you came from Barry Town.


A                     Bm7                        D           E7     A
2.	Don't believe I'm taken in by stories I have heard;
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word.

F#m                                     C#m      D          C#m                       E
And don't think that I'm out of line for speaking for what is mine;
        A                          Bm7                      D   C#m        Bm7
I like to see you just fine, but looking at what you wear
                D                 C#m   Bm7
And the way you cut you hair.

Chorus

Interlude
F                    Am7                    Bmaj9                F                        Am7    
In the beginning we recall the word was hurled; Barry Town people got to be from 
Bmaj9
another world.

      A                     Bm7                        D           E7     A
          3.    Leave me or I'll be just like the others that you meet; 
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street.

F#m                                     C#m      D          C#m                         E
            And don't you scream or make a shout; it's nothing you can do about; 
           A                          Bm7                      D   C#m        Bm7
            It was there where you came out, it's a special lack of grace,
           D                 C#m   Bm7
            I can see it on your face.			Chorus & repeat 3 x
