|Cmaj7   Bm7+5  |Bbmaj7  Am7+5  |                                           
      
|Dmaj7  Dbm7+5  |Cmaj7  Bm7+5   |Ebmaj6/9      |E7+9+5      |       

G6              Gsus2/F
    This is the day
       G/A       F13 
Of the expanding man
G6                   F6
    That shape is my shade
              G/A     D13  
There where I used to stand
Fmaj9                E7-9       Am7
       It seems like only yesterday
                    Bb13
I gazed through the glass
   E7
At ramblers
     B7(no5) 
Wild gamblers
       Bm7-5      E7    Bm7-5/F  E7+9+5 
That's all in the past  
G13               F13
    You call me a fool                              
                G/A   F13-5  
 You say it's a crazy scheme
G13             F13
 This one's for real
           Gmaj7/A    A13
 I already bought the dream
Fmaj9                E7-9    
       So useless to ask me why                                
 Am7                  Gm7      Bbmaj7/C  Gb9+5   Fmaj9
     Throw a kiss and say goodbye
                   C/E
 I'll make it this time
D9              Fmaj7/G    F/G  
   I'm ready to cross that fine line
 Am7                        Em7
     I'll learn to work the saxophone
Dm7            Cmaj7
     I'll play just what I feel                                          
Bbmaj9              Am7       G6        Gb7-5 Fmaj7
Drink Scotch whisky all night long
      C/E       Fmaj9    Am7
  And die   be  hind the wheel
                         Em7           
 They got a name for the winners in the world
Dm7         Cmaj7     
   I want a name when I lose
      Bbmaj9           Am7     G6    Gb7-5 Fmaj7   
 They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
 C/E       Fmaj9   Am7
 Call me   Deacon  Blues
        Em7
(Deacon Blues )
brass:                                            
                  
 |Dmaj7  Dbm7+5    |Cmaj13  Bm7+5    |Ebmaj9/6     |E7+9+5    | 
 
 Gmaj9/6                 F13     
         My back to the wall                            
             G/A      F13
 A victim of laughing chance
 Gmaj9/6           F13
       This is for me
                G/A      D13
 The essence of true ro  mance
Fmaj9           E7-9               Am7
    Sharing the things we know and love
                  Bb13
 With those of my kind
    E7
 Li bations
     B7(no5)
 Sen sations
      Bm7-5       E7    Bm7-5/F   E7+9
 That stagger the mind
Gmaj9/6                F13
        I crawl like a viper                                     
                  G/A    F13-5  
Through these su burban streets
Gmaj9/6                     F13
        Make love to these women
             Gmaj7/A  A13 
 Languid and bitter  sweet
Fmaj7                     E7-9
      I'll rise when the sun goes down                             
Am7             Gm7      Bbmaj7/C   Gb9+5  Fmaj9
    Cover every game in town
               C/E
 A world of my own
D9               Fmaj7/G       F/G
 I'll make it my home    sweet home 
Am7                        Em7
     I'll learn to work the saxophone
Dm7            Cmaj7
     I'll play just what I feel
Bbmaj9              Am7       G6         Gb7-5 Fmaj7
Drink Scotch whisky all night long
      C/E       Fmaj9    Am7
  And die   be  hind the wheel
Dm7                         Em7           
    They got a name for the winners in the world
            Cmaj7     
   I want a name when I lose
      Bbmaj9           Am7     G6    Gb7-5 Fmaj7   
 They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
 C/E       Fmaj9    Am7
 Call me   Deacon  Blues

Of the expanding man
 Gmaj9/6                Ebmaj7-5/F 
        I take one last drag
         Gmaj7/A    A13 
 As I ap proach the stand
Fmaj9               E7-9
     I cried when I wrote this song                                   
Am7             Gm7           Bbmaj7/C  Gb9+5   Fmaj9
    Sue me if I play too long
