Piano Man (ver 11) by Billy Joel

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Piano Man - Billy Joel
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Billy Joel
Piano Man (1973)
(Billy Joel)

From: "Piano Man"

I tried to trace as much of the piano accompaniment as possible. It may 
look a little complicated at first, but it isn't that difficult to play 
once you try. Listen to my quick demo recording of the tab here:

Enjoy!

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
    F       C/E            D      G
The regular crowd shuffles in
           C     G/B       F/A         C/G
There's an old man sitting next to me
       F           F/G       C
Makin' love to his tonic and gin

          C            G/B       F/A      C/G
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
    F          C/E         D      G
I'm not really sure how it goes
         C            G/B         F/A        C/G
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
     F        F/G           C
When I wore a younger man's clothes"


BRIDGE
Am    Am/G      D7/F#   F 
La la la, di da da
Am Am/G      D7/F# G   G/F   G/E   G/D

Sing us a song tonight
            C         G/B         F/A      C/G
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody

And you've got us feelin' alright

VERSE
     C          G/B      F/A            C/G
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
   F          C/E        D      G
He gets me my drinks for free
         C            G/B        F/A           C/G
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
            F              F/G           C   F/C
But there's someplace that he'd rather be


VERSE
          C         G/B           F/A         C/G
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
       F          C/E          D      G
As the smile ran away from his face
          C           G/B        F/A        C/G
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
   F           F/G         C
If I could get out of this place"


BRIDGE
Am    Am/G      D7/F#   F 
La la la, di da da
Am Am/G      D7/F# G   G/F   G/E   G/D

VERSE
    C         G/B         F/A       C/G
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
    F         C/E        D      G
Who never had time for a wife
         C            G/B         F/A          C/G
And he's talkin' with Davy, who's still in the Navy
    F        F/G         C
And probably will be for life

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

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
        F       C/E        D      G
And the manager gives me a smile
          C               G/B             F/A       C/G
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
      F         F/G        C        F/C
To forget about life for a while


VERSE
        C         G/B           F/A       C/G
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
        F          C/E           D      G
And the microphone smells like a beer
         C          G/B         F/A         C/G
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
          F             F/G       C
And say, "Man, what are you doin' here?"


BRIDGE
Am    Am/G      D7/F#   F

Sing us a song tonight
            C         G/B         F/A      C/G
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    F             F/G       C
And you've got us feelin' alright
