Roger Creager''s live version of Piano Man. His voice is so amazing in this 
song towards the end, I suggest you all try to download it. It's him live in 
Ft. Worth, with the band and he's on guitar and harmonica. Enjoy!

Song is in A. Use capo on 2.
and D walkdown is to a D/F#...simply just putting your thrumb on the low E string and playing a D.
G   C\G   D*   C Cmaj D(X2)

     G   D          Em          C
It's 4 o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
           G      D        Em        
There's an old man sitting next to me
       C           D         G   C\G   D*   
Making love to his tonic and gin

C Cmaj7 D G            D         Em
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory?
C                          D
I'm not really sure how it goes,
         G            D           Em
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
C             D             G
When I wore a younger man's clothes"
    Em             A7
Oh, la da da ditty da, 
Em7         D      D D7 G\D D
La da ditty da da dum

G         D                Em
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C                D
Sing us a song tonight
             G          D          Em
'Cause we're all in the mood for a melody
    C             D           G   C\G   D*   C Cmaj7 D 
And you've got us feeling all right
G   C\G   D*   C Cmaj7 D

2.Now Tom at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me tequila shots for free
And he's quick with a joke or a light up your smoke,
But there's some place that's he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me,"
As the smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place."
Oh, la da da ditty da
La da ditty da da dum


3.Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who Never had time for a wife
And he's talking to Davy who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the Waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call Lonliness,
But it's better than drinking alone
(Piano Solo)Em  Em7  A7  C  Em  Em7  A7  A7  D  D7  G\D  D


4.It's a pretty good crowd for a Friday Night, Downtown Ft. Worth
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for awhile

And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, "Man, whatta you doin' here?"
Oh, la da da ditty da
La da ditty da da dum

(Chorus(play last few chords slowly))

instead of that, try playing "A" with walk down on the low "E" to
a "F#M" then "E" then Back to a "D" then start again at "A"

just a thought!!!!
