              He says bill i beilive this is killing me as the smile ran away from his face
        C           Em/B        Am      C/G           F        G11          C

G11    C     Em/B       Am       C/G     F       C/E            D7 
Now Paul is a real estate novelist who never had time for a wife
G            C       Em/B       Am         C/G      F           G11       C

And the waitress is practising politics As the businessmen slowly get stoned
        C           Em/B        Am      C/G           F        G11          C

G            C       Em/B       Am         C/G      F           G11       C
Cause he knows that its me they've been coming to see To forget about life for a while
C F/C Cmaj7 G11         C           Em/B      Am     C/G     F          C/E    D7
And the piano sounds like a carnival and the microphone smells like a beer
        C           Em/B        Am      C/G           F        G11          C
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar and say man what are you doing here?


[Chorus]

  Well were all in the mood for a melody         and youve got us feeling all   right

Try cutting out the odd chord and just playing the typical major you know? (ie, G11 just play Gmaj... sounds alright to me...)

G11 is either 3.5.3.5.3.5 or x.10.10.10.10.10
