INTRO
******
Dm  A7  Dm  A7


--------------------------
VERSE 1
********
                Dm
Well, I had the contract with me 
      Gm
I was opening for a star 
    C
I'd seen him on the concert stage 
    Dm
I'd watched him from afar 
  F
I hadn't heard much lately 
   C
Of anything he'd done 
    Dm
But he sang songs of rights and wrongs 
   A7
Of those who'd lost or won 


--------------------------
VERSE 2
********
          Dm
So it was in a run down nightclub 
     Gm
In a broken part of town
      C
I was on the long way up 
       Dm
He was on the long way down
  F
I saw him in a corner 
        C
Playing pinball, killing time 
  Dm
I asked him how he was 
           A7
And with a smile he answered "Fine" 
With a smile he answered "Fine" 
Then he said


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
 F
"Sonny, it's the same old pinball 
  Dm
I played ten years ago 
C
Now it's just like me, friend 
    F                C     F
The action's getting slow 

I've been to the top friend 
Dm
Now I'm way down low 
      C
Still playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F    Dm  A7  Dm  A7
I played ten years ago" 


--------------------------
VERSE 3
********
      Dm
Well, never meet your heroes 
     Gm
I've read that line somewhere
        C
They're just like you and me 
             Dm
With all our hope and our despair 
  F
I said “It's never that bad 
        C
There's always one more day 
        Dm
There's always one more song to sing 
    A7
And one more tune to play" 


--------------------------
VERSE 4
********
              Dm
Well, he just looked me up and down 
            Gm
And then he slowly shook his head 
           C
He said "To stay alive, try 9 to 5 
  Dm
To earn your daily bread" 
  F
I said "You were my idol
    C
You handed me this dream" 
          Dm
He turned away and pointed 
       A7
To the battered old machine 
That battered old machine 
And he said


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
 F
"Sonny, it's the same old pinball 
  Dm
I played ten years ago 
C
Now it's just like me, friend 
    F                C     F
The action's getting slow 

I've been to the top friend 
Dm
Now I'm way down low 
      C
Still playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F    Dm  A7  Dm  A7
I played ten years ago" 


--------------------------
VERSE 5
********
           Dm
He said "I made a lot of money 
      Gm
And I drank a lot of wine 
  C
I paid for all my pleasures 
            Dm
And I had a real good time 
  F
I never stayed in one place 
C
Longer than a day 
  Dm
I gave them pearls and told the girls 
  A7
I really couldn't stay"


--------------------------
VERSE 6
********
            Dm
"But where, where'd it go to sonny? 
   Gm
It came and went so fast
     C
It's far too easy nowadays 
   Dm
To live back in the past
    F
But I'm still good for doing 
C
What I've always done
      Dm
There hasn't been a house yet 
  A7
I haven't fought and won
I haven't fought and won." 
Then he said


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
 F
"Sonny, it's the same old pinball 
  Dm
I played ten years ago 
C
Now it's just like me, friend 
    F                C     F
The action's getting slow 

I've been to the top friend 
Dm
Now I'm way down low 
      C
Still playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F    Dm  A7  Dm  A7
I played ten years ago" 


--------------------------
VERSE 7
********
    Dm
"So now they're out there waiting
         Gm
And they don't know who you are
     C
They don't care for your future 
        Dm
They'll just prop up the bar
    F
And you, you'll sing your heart out 
    C
And maybe some will hear 
    Dm
And maybe you'll come back 
              A7
And play this place again next year"


--------------------------
VERSE 8
********
                       Dm
"So, go on and do your set now, sonny 
  Gm
Before they get too drunk
    C
And please, don't count them, sonny 
      Dm
These glasses that I've sunk
     F
I'll do my show, remember 
     C
I've never lost them yet 
    Dm
But sonny, sometimes lately 
A7
It's been an even bet
It's been an even bet." 
Then he said


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
 F
"Sonny, it's the same old pinball 
  Dm
I played ten years ago 
C
Now it's just like me, friend 
    F                C     F
The action's getting slow 

I've been to the top friend 
Dm
Now I'm way down low 
      C
Still playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F    Dm  A7  Dm  A7
I played ten years ago" 


--------------------------
VERSE 9
********
          Dm
He's long gone and forgotten 
    Gm
His name you never knew 
    C
But what reminded me 
           Dm
Was when I turned and looked at you 
F
Standing there so happy 
          C
With your new guitar and dreams 
Dm
One question for you, sonny 
        A7
Can you play these machines
Can you play these machines


--------------------------
CHORUS
*******
 F
'Cause sonny it's the same old pinball
   Dm
He played ten years ago
    C
And now it's just like me friend 
    F                C     F
The action's getting slow 

I've been to the top friend 
    Dm
And now I'm way down low 
      C
Still playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F 
I played ten years ago" 
         C
Yes, I'm playing the same old pinball clubs 
                    F
I played ten years ago"
