|Cmaj7   Bm7+5  |Bbmaj7  Am7+5  |
                                           
      
|Dmaj7  Dbm7+5  |Cmaj7  Bm7+5   |Ebmaj6/9      |E7+9+5      |       

G6              Gsus2/F
    This is the day 

       G/A       Ebmaj7-5/F 
Of the expanding man  

G6                   F6
    That shape is my shade 

              G/A     Cmaj7-5/D  
There where I used to stand  

Fmaj9                E7-9       Am7
       It seems like only yesterday  

                    Bb13
I gazed through the glass  

   E7
At ramblers 

     B7(no5) 
Wild gamblers  

       Dm/B       E7    Bm7-5/F  E7+9+5 
That's all in the past  
  
G13               Ebmaj7-5/F
    You call me a fool  
                              
                G/A   F13-5add9  
 You say it's a crazy scheme 

G13             F13
 This one's for real  

           Gmaj7/A    A13
 I already bought the dream  

Fmaj9                E7-9    
       So useless to ask me why  

                                
 Am7                  Gm7      Bbmaj7/C  Gb9+5   Fmaj9
     Throw a kiss and say goodbye  

                   C/E
 I'll make it this time  

D9              Fmaj7/G    F/G  
   I'm ready to cross that fine line  

 Am7                        Em7
     I'll learn to work the saxophone  

Dm7            Cmaj7
     I'll play just what I feel  
                                          
Bbmaj9              Am7       G6        Gb7-5 Fmaj7
Drink Scotch whisky all night long  

      C/E       Fmaj7    Am7
  And die   be  hind the wheel  

                         Em7           
 They got a name for the winners in the world  

Dm7         Cmaj7     
   I want a name when I lose  

      Bbmaj9           Am7     G6    Gb7-5 Fmaj7   
 They call Alabama the Crimson Tide  

 C/E       C/F     Am7
 Call me   Deacon  Blues  

        Em7
(Deacon Blues )

 Esus2/G                Ebmaj7-5/F     
         My back to the wall  

                            
             G/A      F13
 A victim of laughing chance  

Esus2/G            F13
       This is for me  

                G/A      Cmaj7-5/D
 The essence of true ro  mance  

Fmaj9           E7-9               Am7
    Sharing the things we know and love  

                  Bb13
 With those of my kind  

    E7
 Li bations 

     B7(no5)
 Sen sations 

      Dm/B        E7    Bm7-5/F   E7+9
 That stagger the mind 

Gmaj13               Ebmaj7-5/F
        I crawl like a viper  
                                     
                  G/A    F13-5add9  
Through these su burban streets  

Gmaj13                    F13
        Make love to these women  

             Gmaj7/A A13 
 Languid and bitter  sweet  

Fmaj7                     E7-9
      I'll rise when the sun goes down  

                             
Am7             Gm7      Bbmaj7/C   Gb9+5  Fmaj9
    Cover every game in town  

               C/E
 A world of my own 

D9               Fmaj7/G       F/G
 I'll make it my home    sweet home  
  
Am7                        Em7
     I'll learn to work the saxophone

        I take one last drag  

         Gmaj7/A    A13 
 As I ap proach the stand  

Fmaj9               E7-9
     I cried when I wrote this song  

                                   
Am7             Gm7           Bbmaj7/C  Gb9+5   Fmaj9
