[intro]

C            C                  C   -   G/B    Am
I am just a poor boy, though my story's seldom told
       G                G             G7           G7                C        C
I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises
C  -  G/B      Am            G                 F                 F               C
  All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest
      G            G     G          C     C    C    C
Mm-mm mmmm mm-mm mmmmmm,  mmm mm mm mmmmm

        C                  C             C   -   G/B     Am
When I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy
       G             G              G7            G7              C              C
In the company of strangers, in the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared
C - G/B    Am            G               F                  F             C
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters, where the ragged people go
         G             F               C     C
Looking for the places only they would know

        Am   Am        Em           Em           Am   Am
Lie la lie,     lie la la la lie la lie, lie la lie
        G            G                C   C   C   C
Lie la la la lie la lie, la la la la lie

        C             C             C   -   G/B    Am
Asking only workman's wages, I come lookin' for a job
               G     G        G7                 G7               C     C
But I get no offers,   just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
C  -  G/B    Am              G                F            F                 C
    I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there
        G           G   G   C   C
La la, la la la la la

[20-bar horn solo, same chords as verse 2]

        Am   Am        Em           Em           Am   Am
Lie la lie,     lie la la la lie la lie, lie la lie
        G            G                C   C   C   C
Lie la la la lie la lie, la la la la lie

          C            C                  C   -   G/B    Am              G   G
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone, going home
          G             G              C           C
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Em        Em   Am   Am        G    G7   G7     C    C    C    C
  Leading meeeeee,     going home             [short guitar solo]

         C                C           C   -   G/B    Am
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade
        G             G         G7               G7               C                 C
And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down or cut him 'til he cried out
       C  -  G/B       Am         G             F                 F               C
In his anger and his shame, "I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains"
       G    F   C   C
Mm-mm mmmmm

Lie la Am  Am        Em          Em          Am  Am lie,    lie la la la lie la lie, lie la lie         G            G
Lie la la la lie la lie, la la la la [repeat many times, then go to C for two measures and end with an instrumental version of the last verse.]

RHINESTONE COWBOY

โดย Little Bear on November,07 2018 10.28

[Verse]
C
I've been walking these streets so long Singing the same old song
                                             G  (Gsus4 G)
I know every crack in the dirty sidewalks of Broadway
            F
Where hustle is the name of the game
    Dm                   F                           C
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
                G
There's been a load of compromising
            F               C
On the road to my horizon
    F                      Dm                    G   (Dm G)
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me
[Chorus]
       F     G    C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                           Cmaj7             G (C G)
Riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
       F    G     C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                             Cmaj7                G
Getting cards & letters from people I don't even know
G                           F     *
And offers coming over the phone
[Verse]
  C
I really don't mind the rain and smiles can hide all the pain
                                                            G
You're down while taking the train that's taking the long way
   F
And I dream of things I'll do
       Dm                 F                    C
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
G
There'll been a load of compromising
            F               C
On the road to my horizon
    F                      Dm                    G   (Dm G)
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me
[Chorus]
       F     G    C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                           Cmaj7             G (C G)
Riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
       F    G     C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                             Cmaj7                G
Getting cards & letters from people I don't even know
G                           F     *
And offers coming over the phone
[Chorus]
       F     G    C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                           Cmaj7             G (C G)
Riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
       F    G     C       (F C)
Like a rhinestone cowboy
C                             Cmaj7                G
Getting cards & letters from people I don't even know
G                           F     *
And offers coming over the phone

American Dream

[Intro] / D / G / A / D / D / G / A / Bm / G / A /
(4 beats of each chord)
[Verse 1]
  D                       G
I beg your pardon, mama, what did you say?
  A                         D
My mind was drifting off on Martinique Bay.
  D                           G
It's not that I'm not interested, you see;
  A                      D
Augusta, Georgia is just no place to be.
[Chorus]
  D                         G
 *I think Jamaican in the  moonlight.
 A                         D
 Sandy beaches, drinking  rum every night.
 D                        G
 We got no money, mama,  but we can go;
 A                                   D
 We'll split the difference, go to  Coconut Grove.
[Verse 2]
  D                       G
  Keep on talking, mama,  I can't hear.
  A                               D
  Your voice, it tickles down in side of my ear.
  D                  G
  I feel a tropical vacation this year,
  A                             D
  Might be the answer to this  hillbilly fear.
[Chorus]
(*)
    D           G
  **Voila!  An American Dream.
  A                          D
  Well, we can travel girl, without any means.
  D                     G
  When it's as easy as  closing your eyes
  A                       D
  And dream Jamaica is a  big neon sign.
[Break]
D G A D D G A Bm G A (like intro)
[Verse 3]

  D                         G
  Just keep talking, mama,  I like that sound.
  A                           D
  It goes so easy with that  rain falling down.
  D                   G
  I think a tropical vacation this year,
  A                             D
  Might be the answer to this  hillbilly fear.
