     F       G         Am
It's nine o'clock on a saturday
        F                  D    
The regular crowd shuffles in
           F    G          Am            
There's an old man sitting next to me
       F           G         F
Makin' love to his tonic and gin
          F             G        Am
He says, "son, can you play me a memory?
    F                      D
I'm not really sure how it goes
         F            G            Am
But it's sad and it's sweet and i knew it complete
     F        G             F
When i wore a younger man's clothes"

Am           G
La la la, de de da
Am           G     F
La la, de de da da da

F         G                Am
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
F              D
Sing us a song tonight
            F          G          Am
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    F             G       F
And you've got us feelin' alright

    F           G        Am
Now john at the bar is a friend of mine
   F                     D
He gets me my drinks for free
         F            G          Am
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            F              G           F
But there's someplace that he'd rather be
          F       G               Am
He says, "bill, i believe this is killing me."
       F                       D
As the smile ran away from his face
          F           G          Am
"well i'm sure that i could be a movie star
   F           G           F
If i could get out of this place"
    Am              G
Oh, la la la, de de da
Am           G     F
La la, de de da da da

    F         G           Am
Now paul is a real estate novelist
    F                    D
Who never had time for a wife
         F            G          Am
And he's talkin' with davy who's still in the navy
    F        G           F
And probably will be for life

        F           G          Am
And the waitress is practicing politics
       F                      D
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
             F         G               Am
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
         F           G        F
But it's better than drinkin' alone


       F           G           Am
It's a pretty good crowd for a saturday
        F                  D
And the manager gives me a smile
          F               G               Am
'cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
   F            G          F
To forget about life for a while
        F         G             Am
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
        F                        D
And the microphone smells like a beer
         F          G           Am
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
          F             G         F
And say, "man, what are you doin' here?"

    Am              G
Oh, la la la, de de da
Am           G     F
La la, de de da da da
