But I see a face coming through the haze
I remember him from those crazy days, crazy days, crazy days

[spoken]
I've got a good job and I'm newly born
You should see me dressed up in my uniform
I work in an hotel, all gilt and flash
Remember the gap where the doors we smashed?


|Bb  F7/A Bb|                      |
|           |                      |
 Bell Boy,  I got to get running now
 Bell Boy,  Keep my lip buttoned down
 Bell Boy,  Carry this baggage out
 Bell Boy, Always running at someone's bleedin'

|F7sus4  |Bb                 |Eb7sus4 |Ab6   |
|        |                   |        |      |
 Heel          You know how I feel

|Abm6                           |Ebsus2     |        |        |       |

     Always running at someone's heel

|Fmaj7                  Cmaj7       |D        |
|                                   |         |
    Some nights I still sleep on the beach, 

|Fmaj7              Cmaj7      |D     |
|                              |      |
    Remember when stars were in reach

|Fii            Fmaj7ii   |F7ii    |
|                         |        |
    I wander in early to work

    Spend my day lickin' boots for my perks

[repeat verse]
A beach is a place where a man can feel
He's the only soul in the world that's real

But I see a face coming through the haze
I remember him from those crazy days, crazy days, crazy days, crazy days

Ain't you the guy who used to set the paces
Riding up in front of a hundred faces
I don't suppose you would remember me 
But I used to follow you back in '63

People often change but when I look in your eyes
You can learn a lot from a life like mine
The secret to me, it ain't flown up a flag
I carry it behind this bleeding little badge, what says:

Bell Boy, I gotta get running now
Bell Boy, Keep your lip buttoned down
Bell Boy, Carry the bloody baggage out
Bell Boy, Always running at someone's heel,
You know how I feel, always running at someone's heel

 Ebsus2
