18He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
19 F C D7 G
20I'm not really sure how it goes
21 C G F C
22But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete

50Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
51 F C D7 G
52He gets me my drinks for free
53 C G F C
54And he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
55 F G C G
56But there's some place that he'd rather be
57
58
59 C G F C
60He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
61 F C D7 G

80Now Paul is a real estate novelist
81 F C D7 G
82Who never had time for a wife
83 C G F C
84And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy

86And probably will be for life
87

89 C G F C
90And the waitress is practicing politics
91 F C D7 G
92As the businessman slowly gets stoned
93 C G F C

114It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
115 F C D7 G
116And the manager gives me a smile
117 C G F C
118'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
119 F G C G
120To forget about life for a while
121
122 C G F C
123And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
124 F C D7 G
125And the microphone smells like a beer
126 C G F C
127And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
128 F G C G
129And say, "Man, what are you doing here?"
