Intro:   AmAm7/GFE 

Am                           Am7/G 
Each Tuesday morning they’dd all stand in line
    F                  E 
The auction would open promptly at nine
Am                        Am7/G 
The gavel came down on the auctioneer's block
        F             D                      
And the bidding began   on a grandfather's clock



Am                        Am7/G 
Next up for bids in the rear of the room
    F                  E 
A piano worn down and a bit out of tune
Am                        Am7/G 
"Who'll start the bidding" the auctioneer cried
   F                E               A
No voices rang out, so just put it aside


Am                             E/G#  
Shouts filled the room and the auction went on
        G                        D/F#
But the cries of the crowd were stopped by a song
Fm                     A/E 
Everyone turned to the rear of the room
        B7/D#                         Esus4E 
To that worn down piano, a bit out of tune


       Dm         F/A        E             Am 
Oh the days long ago when the crowds came around
Cm             G#   D            Gm                     
To hear that piano ring out with sound
        F               D/F#          Gm         Db7 
But the crowds have all gone and the symphony’s through
        Gm          Am          D7            Gm 
And the piano cries out "Let me play once for you"







Am                           Am7/G 
A man with a torn coat and a hole is one shoe
    F                     E 
Sat playing the song that nobody knew
    Am                      Am7/G 
The music rang out and that song filled the room
        F                  D                      
From that worn down piano,    a bit out of tune

Am                        Am7/G 
Then from the crowd a man shouted a bid
F                              E 
"One thousand dollars for that piano I'll give"
Am                                       Am7/G 
"Two thousand" "Three thousand", and the bidding went on
   F                        E                   A
As the man in the torn coat,  kept playing that song


The bidding grew tense, each bid more and more
Till the five thousand figure rang out from the floor
The man in the torn coat just sat there and stared
Playing that song, as if no-one were there


Oh the days long ago when the crowds came around
To hear that piano ring out a sound
But the crowds have all gone and the symphony is through
And the piano cries out "Let me play once for you"





The man in the torn coat played as if to say
I too want you, piano but I've nothing to pay.
I'd give all I own if you could be mine,
but all I can bid is this bottle of wine.

The sound of the gavel rang out through the air,
the auctioneer cried: Top that bid if you dare.
Yes give him the piano, maestro play on.
but where has the man, in the torn coat gone?

It's a quarter past five and the bidding is done,
everything's sold and now leave one by one.
The auction is over and left in that room
is that worn down piano, still a bit out of tune.

Oh the days long ago when the crowds came around
to hear that piano ring out with sound,
but the crowds have all gone and the symphony's through
and the piano cries out: let me once play for you.
