FIRST VERSE: 
    C      G           Am      C        
Its nine o’clock on a saturday      
    F         C         D        G          
The regular crowd shuffles in
           C      G         Am         C             
There’s an old man  sitting next to me          
        F          G         C      C
Making love to his tonic and gin 

C  G  Am  C  F  G  C  C  F  F

        C           G         Am     C           
He says son can you play me a memory    
     F          C           D      G
I’m not really sure how it goes
          C           G           Am           C    
But it’s sad and its sweet and I knew it complete 
     F        G             C      C
when I wore a younger man’s clothes 

Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA


CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

C G Am C F G C C F F C C F F

VERSE 2
     C          G            Am           C
Now John at the bar – he’s a friend of mine, 
   F          C          D    G
he gets me my drinks for free
         C            G          Am            C
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            F               G           C           C 
but there’s some place that he’d rather be 


        C      G               Am          C
He says bill I believe this is killing me,
         F          C           D      G
as the smile ran away from his face, 
         C           G           Am      C 
Well I’m sure that I could be a movie star,
      F         G          C     C
if I could get out of this place


Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA

VERSE 3
      C        G          Am       C
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
    F         C          D      G
who never had time for a wife
         C            G          Am           C 
And he’s talking with Davy who’s still in the navy
    F         G          C     C 
and probably will be for life

C G Am C F G C C F F 

        C           G          Am       C
And the waitress is practising politics
       F           C          D      G
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
            C         G           Am            C 
yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness 
        F           G        C     C 
but its better than drinking alone

PIANO SOLO


CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

C G Am C F G C C F F C C F F


VERSE 4
       C           G           Am       C
It’s a pretty good crowd for a saturday 
        F       C          D      G
And the manager gives me a smile
         C               G               Am        C
Cause he knows that it’s me they've been coming to see
   F            G          C     C
To forget about life for a while


        C     G             Am       C
And the piano sounds like a carnival 
        F          C             D      G
and the microphone smells like a beer
         C          G           Am          C        
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
        F            G         C     C
and say man what are you doing here? 


Am    C                  D7   D7   Am        
La da da     de de Da               
   C            D7  D7          G  G7 G* G7*
da da     de de Da     da DA



CHORUS: 
C         G             Am        C   
Sing us a song you’re the piano man     
F         C       D     G
Sing us a song tonight
            C          G          Am     C     
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody   
    F             G           C     C
and you’ve got us feeling all right

The song is called "Piano Man." If you don't even know the title, there's NO WAY you should be posting the chords

The Chords aren't that bad though.
