             D Dsus D5 Dsus 

D              D/C#           Bm          Bm/A   
Its nine o’clock on a Saturday 
        G             G/F#               E7     A   
The regular crowd shuffles in 
D                      D/C#                       Bm     Bm/A   
There’s an old man sitting next to me 
             G                  A             D 
Makin love to his tonic and gin 

D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A  G  A  D Dsus D5 Dsus  D 

                D                    D/C#         Bm          Bm/A   
He says, son, can you play me a memory?  
        G             G/F#             E7     A   
I’m not really sure how it goes 
            D                   D/C#             Bm            Bm/A   
But its sad and its sweet and I knew it complete 
              G          A                          D 
When I wore a younger mans clothes 

Bm         Bm/A        E    G 
La la la, de de da 
Bm         Bm/A        E     A  A/G   A/F#  A/E 
La la, de de da da da 

 D               D/C#                  Bm      Bm/A   
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man 
 G             G/F#         E7     A   
Sing us a song tonight 
                   D             D/C#            Bm         Bm/A   
Well, were all in the mood for a melody 
                      G          A         D 
And you’ve got us feelin’ alright 

D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A  G  A  D Dsus D5 Dsus D Dsus D5 Dsus 

          D               D/C#        Bm        Bm/A   
Now john at the bar is a friend of mine 
       G                  G/F#         E7     A   
He gets me my drinks for free 
                   D                D/C#         Bm                  Bm/A   
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke 
                              G                A               D   Dsus D5 Dsus  D 
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be  
                D                D/C#           Bm      Bm/ 
And the waitress is practicing politics 
              G                   G/F#                E7     A   
As the businessmen slowly gets  stoned 
                       D             D/C#                Bm     Bm/A   
Yes, they’re sharing a drink they call loneliness 
              G                 A           D 
But its better than drinkin’ alone 

Bm   Bm/A  E   G  Bm   Bm/A  E   G  Bm   Bm/A   E   A   A/G   A/F#   A/E 

D               D/C#                    Bm      Bm/A   
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man 
 G             G/F#         E7     A   
Sing us a song tonight 
                   D             D/C#            Bm         Bm/A   
Well, were all in the mood for a melody 
                      G          A         D 
And you’ve got us feelin alright 

D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A  G  A  D  Dsus D5 Dsus  D Dsus D5 Dsus 

          D                  D/C#           Bm    Bm/A   
Its a pretty good crowd for a Saturday 
               G              G/F#     E7    A   
And the manager gives me a smile 
                   D                   D/C#                      Bm        Bm/A   
cause he knows that its me they’ve been comin’ to see 
            G             A               D   Dsus D5 Dsus  D 
To forget about life for a while 

               D            D/C#                Bm      Bm/A   
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival 
               G                   G/F#     E7       A   
And the microphone smells like a beer 
                 D             D/C#             Bm            Bm/A   
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar 
                   G                     A              D 
And say, man, what are you doin’ here?  

Bm         Bm/A        E    G 
La la la, de de da 
Bm         Bm/A        E     A  A/G   A/F#  A/E 
La la, de de da da da 


D               D/C#                    Bm      Bm/A   
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man 
 G             G/F#         E7     A   
Sing us a song tonight 
                   D             D/C#            Bm         Bm/A   
Well, were all in the mood for a melody 
                      G          A         D 
And you’ve got us feelin alright
