                             WHY SHOULD I WORRY? - Billy Joel
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
from Disney's Oliver & Co. soundtrack

Tabbed by: Cody
Email: betterliving420@mac.com

Tuning:EADGBe

This tab isn't of the entire song. Specifically I left out the "They love me at the 
they adore me at the Ritz" because it's somewhat un-melodic and I couldn't really figure it out.

I wrote these tabs with timing in mind. I put the chords over the word it should be played on.
In some cases it's over the part of the word it should be played. example; F starts on 
'lancey' in 'Delancey'.


Here are the chords I use:

    E A D G B e
G   3-5-5-4-3-3-|
F   1-3-3-2-1-1-|
Eb  x-6-8-8-8-6-|
A#  6-8-8-7-6-6-|
D   x-5-7-7-7-5-|
Eb7 x-6-8-6-8-6-|
Em  0-2-2-0-0-0-|
D*  x-0-0-2-3-2-|
C   x-3-2-0-1-0-|


[Verse 1]

G                  F         G        F
   One minute I'm in Central Park
G                 F          G        F
   Then I'm down on Delancey Street
G                F       G        F
   From the Bow'ry to St Marks
G                F      G        F
   There's a syncopated Beat


[Pre-Chorus]

G             F         G        F
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
    G          F       G            F
I'm streetwise,  I can improvise
G                F         G        F
   Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
    G           F         G             F
I'm streetsmart, I've got New York City heart

Eb             A#
  Why should I worry?
Eb             G
  Why should I care?
Eb          A#
  I may not have a dime
D            Eb
  But I got street savoire faire
Eb             A#
  Why should I worry?
Eb             G
  Why should I care?
Eb          A#
  It's just bebopulation
D            Eb             Eb7
  And I got street saviore faire


[Bridge]

    Em            D*
The rhythm of the city
    C
But once you get it down
     Em                D*
Then you can own this town
C
You can wear the crown


[Chorus]

Eb             A#
  Why should I worry?
Eb             G
  Why should I care?
Eb          A#
  I may not have a dime
D            Eb
  But I got street savoire faire
Eb             A#
  Why should I worry?
Eb             G
  Why should I care?
Eb          A#
  It's just bebopulation
D            Eb             Eb7
  And I got street saviore faire

Just so you know, it's "savoir-faire" not saviore or savoire. It's French for "know how to do." :)

This is like a semi-tone higher than it should be...
