This is a basically the original transposed down a step with all the lyrics. For 
those of us using the Ultimate Guitar Tab app, I'm hoping this will be helpful.

CAPO 3

    G   D/F#      Em       Em/D
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
       C          G/B          A7  D
The regular crowd shuffles in
       G         D/F#     Em           Em/D
There's an old man sitting next to me
        C              C/D         G
Making love to his tonic and gin

     G      D/F#        Em       Em/D
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
      C       G/B        A7  D
I'm not really sure how it goes
      G        D/F#          Em      Em/D
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
      C      C/D        G
When I wore a younger man's clothes."

Em    Em/D    Em/C#    C 
la la la, da di da da

Em    Em/D    A   A7   D  Cadd9  B/Dsus   Asus4
La la, da di da da dum


G     D/F#       Em     Em/D
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C     G/B      A7  D
Sing us a song tonight
       G    D/F#     Em    Em/D
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
       C      C/D        G
And you've got us all feeling alright

    G     D/F#     Em     Em/D
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
     C        G/B          A7  D
He gets me my drinks for free
         G        D/F#        Em        Em/D
And he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
         C            C/D            G
But there's some place that he'd rather be

    G          D/F#          Em       Em/D
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
  C      G/B                A7  D
As the smile ran away from his face
  G        D/F#          Em        Em/D
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
   C        C/D            G
If I could get out of this place"


Em    Em/D    Em/C#    C 
la la la, da di da da

Em    Em/D    A   A7   D  Cadd9  B/Dsus   Asus4
La la, da di da da dum


   G     D/F#       Em    Em/D
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
     C       G/B       A7  D
Who never had time for a wife
     G       D/F#        Em        Em/D
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
    C      C/D        G
And probably will be for life

    G        D/F#      Em       Em/D
And the waitress is practicing politics
    C        G/B             A7  D
As the businessman slowly gets stoned
    G       D/F#         Em        Em/D
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
     C       C/D         G
But it's better than drinking alone

G     D/F#       Em     Em/D
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C     G/B      A7  D
Sing us a song tonight
       G    D/F#     Em    Em/D
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
       C      C/D        G
And you've got us all feeling alright


    G     D/F#        Em       Em/D
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
     C       G/B            A7  D
And the manager gives me a smile
      G          D/F#           Em        Em/D
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
     C        C/D         G
To forget about life for a while

      G     D/F#      Em       Em/D
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
      C     G/B              A7  D
And the microphone smells like a beer
      G      D/F#        Em         Em/D
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
               C                    C/D           G
And say, "Man, what are you doing here?"

Em    Em/D    Em/C#    C 
la la la, da di da da

Em    Em/D    A   A7   D  Cadd9  B/Dsus   Asus4
La la, da di da da dum


G      D/F#         Em       Em/D
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C        G/B       A7   D
Sing us a song tonight
   G             D/F#          Em        Em/D
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
     C             C/D        G
And you've got us all feeling alright
