Carpet Man:Johnny Rivers.
Album - Rewind..#14 in 1967.
(Didn't get much play..but, in my opinion, one
 of his best.)

INTRO: F Bb Eb Bb (x4)

#1.
F                     Eb  Bb     F
When you see some mud up..on the ground..
F       Eb          Bb                  F     F  Bb Eb Bb 
you lay down so she don`t have to walk around.
    F                           Eb   Bb  F
You think that will protect her from the rain..
F          Eb     Bb             F    F  Bb Eb Bb 
But you`ll never, ever, stop the pain.

CHORUS:
F   Bb                      Eb        Bb
She walks all over you, she knows she can..
Bb                Db Ab Db  Db                Eb  Db Eb..F 
You`re the carpet man......you`re the carpet man.

#2.
F                               Eb     Bb   F
You take such care to keep that girl`s feet clean..
F               Eb  Bb         F     F  Bb Eb 
like she`s some ki..nd of figurine.
F                                 Eb  Bb  F
The world`s so far below her it`s not her scene..
F     Eb       Bb             F     F  Eb Bb 
she depends on you to stand between.

CHORUS:
F   Bb                      Eb        Bb
She walks all over you, she knows she can..
Bb                Db Ab Db  Db               Eb  Db Eb..Ab 
You`re the carpet man......you`re the carpet man.

BRIDGE:
Ab                               Eb       Ab            Eb
I would think you`d get tired of hurting, every now and then.
Eb   Ab                 Eb                      Ab             Bb
It`s lonely down there, that`s for certain, and carpets do get thin.

F Bb Eb Bb (x2) 

#3.
F                               Eb     Bb F
And that`s when they have to be thrown a..way.
F                  Eb        Bb               F
That`s what she`ll say to herself, some sunny day.
F   Eb     Bb    F                           Eb     Bb  F
And she`ll say, 'Come to my wedding,' and of course you do.
F       Eb                 Bb              F   F Bb Eb Bb 
And the Groom and her will have a dance on you.

CHORUS:
F           Bb                       Eb        Bb
And they'll Waltz all over you, they know they can..
Bb                Db Ab Db  Db                Eb  Db Eb 
You`re the carpet man.......you`re the carpet man.

F Bb Eb Bb (x2) 

OUTRO:
F                 Eb Bb    Bb                F
You`re the carpet man......you`re the carpet man. (x3)(Fade.)
