                OYSTER BAY
                BILLY JOEL

INTRO:
Em

VERSE:
         Em                            A
From my room, I see the blue Pacific Ocean
         F                              G   G Bm
Yes, my hotel has me right beside the shore

         Em               G
Well, today it's San Francisco
       A
And tomorrow it's L.A.
       F                                   G   G
And I feel as though I've been this way before


VERSE:
        Em                              A
Well my woman helps my feet to keep on walkin'
        F                                   G   G
But my manager he stands right outside the door

Bm              Em
Yes, there's an up 'n' comin' superstar
          A
And he's gettin' rave revues
           F                            C   C
But there ain't no time for fishin' anymore


CHORUS:
C                                  Em
 I never thought that things would go this far
C                                Em
 I never thought that life would be this way
C                          Em
 I never thought I'd be a superstar

     Dm
And Jesus Christ
   Em
I wish that I
     F
Was back in Oyster Bay
           F   Bb     F     C  F  C  F  B
Takin' it easy... Oh yeah...


VERSE:
B              Em                                    A
  But there's lots of friendly folks that say "good morning"
         F                                        G    G Bm
But somehow you know I just don't believe their smiles

       Em
I'd be New York City bound
              A
Where I could be among my friends
         F                                 G    G
But the road back home it seems a million miles


VERSE:
      Em                             A
I can see the lights of Hollywood below me
         F                                      G    G
But somehow they just don't move me like they should
   Bm        Em
I know it's hard to understand
            A
But I would be a fisherman
     F
If I only had the chance,
             C   C
You know I would


CHORUS:
C                                  Em
 I never thought that things would go this far
C                             Em
 I never thought that I'd be here today
C                          Em
 I never thought I'd be a superstar

         Dm
Oh, and Jesus Christ
   Em
I wish that I
     F
Was back in Oyster Bay
           F   Bb     F     C  F  C  F  Gm  F
Takin' it easy... Oh yeah...


INSTRUMENTAL:
C  G  Bb  F


OUTRO:
C                    G    Bb               F
Be with my wife all day, happy to be that way
 C                   G      Bb                    F
Wanting it back sometimes, wanting some peace of mind

C                    G    Bb               F
Be with my wife all day, happy to be that way
 C                   G      Bb               F
Wanting it back sometimes, wanting to be so kind

C                    G    Bb               F
Be with my wife all day, happy to be that way
 C                   G      Bb                   F
Wanting it back sometimes, having some peace of mind - FADE OUT
