                 C                        Am G F
                   Let me tell you a story about a woman and a ma-a-n
                                           D                         G
                   Maybe you will find familiar, maybe you won't understand
                                             C                           Am G F
                   The man's name I don't remember, he was always Joe to me-e-e
                                           G C/G G C/G G                         C
                   But I can't forget the woman          she was always Christie Lee

                                          C                                         Am G F
                   He was working in the night club that's where he played the saxopho-o-one
                                              D                                  G
                   He used to fake the stock arrangements he left the customers alone
		                          C                                 Am  G  F
                   One night before the last song, about a quarter after three-ee-ee
	       	 	                       G C/G G C/G G    			 C
                   He saw her standing at the coat check, and made his move on Christie Lee

	  	          		   C		
		   Christie Lee, Christie Lee
					  Am  G  F    G  C
		   Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee

		   			      C				   Am G F		
		   She was a nice piece of music, she had a rhythm all her o-o-own
					   D				  G
		   He blew a solo like a blind man, she really dug his saxophone
		 				  C				   Am G  F	
		   She wanted more than just an encore, and he could play in every ke-e-ey
	       	 				     G				     	C   C7
		   He left the stage and packed his alto, and took it home to Christie Lee
 
		   		    F					
		   Oh, I heard the man knew  “The Bird” like the Bible
				 C
		   You know the man could blow an educated axe
		 		F	
		   He couldn’t see that Christie Lee was a woman
	       	 		D			   G
		   Who didn’t need another lover all she wanted was the sax

		   				C				 Am  G  F
		   It tool a while for him to notice, it took a while for him to see-ee-ee
					G				  C
		   He was never in control here, it was always Christie Lee

	  	          		   C		
		   Christie Lee, Christie Lee
					 Am  G  F    G   C C7
		   Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee	

	   		   F					
		   Oh the man took a calculated gamble
			    C
		   Yes the man had the power to perform
		 		  F	
		   But Christie Lee was more than he knew how to handle
	       	 		D			   G
		   She didn’t need him as a man, all she wanted was the horn

		   				C			       Am  G  F
                   They say that Joe became a wino, they say he always drinks alo-oo-one
					     	D				   G
		   They say he stumbles like a blind man, they say he sold his saxophone
		 			      	C				  Am  G  F	
		   Even the band must face the music, that’s what the moral is to me-ee-ee
	       	 			      G				     		  C
		   The only time you hit the high notes... is when you play for Christie Lee	

	  	          		   C		
		   Christie Lee, Christie Lee
					 Am  G  F   G   C
		   Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee

	  	          		   C		
		   Christie Lee, Christie Lee
					 Am  G  F  G    C
		   Christie Lee Christie Lee-ee-ee
