Guitar Man

by: Bread

((INTRO:)) [G-C-D- (2x)]


[ G]                 
Who draws the crowd and
[   C]
  plays so loud
[                 D]
Baby, it's the guitar man
[ G                     C]
Who's gonna steal the show
You know, baby, it's the
[    D]
  guitar man
[        Em]
He can make you laugh
[        C]
He can make you cry
[         Em]
He will bring you down
[          A7]
Then he'll get you high
[CM7]
Something keeps him going
[Bm7]
Miles and miles a day
[   Am7]
To find another place to
[  D pause D-]
  play

[ G                       C]
Night after night, who treats
  you right
[                D]
Baby, it's the guitar man
[ G                C]
Who's on the radio, you go and
[               D]
Listen to the guitar man
[        Em]
Then he comes to town
[        C]
And you see his face
[         Em]
And you think you might like
[   A7]
To take his place
[ CM7]
Something keeps him drifting
[Bm7]
Miles and miles away
[Am7]
Searching for the songs to
[  D pause]
  play


((REFRAIN:))
[          Am           Eaug]
Then you listen to the music
[        Am7           D7]
And you like to sing along
[     G               G/F#]
You want to get the meaning
[       Em             E7]
Out of each and every song
[         Am]
Then you find yourself a
[   Eaug]
  message
[         Am7]
And some words to call your
[  D]
  own
[              E E7sus]
And take them home.


((AD LIB:)) [CM7--]
         [G-C-D- (2x)]

[       Em]
He can make you love
[        C]
He can get you high
[         Em]
He will bring you down
[           A7]
Then he'll make you cry
[ CM7]
Something keeps him moving
[    Bm7]
But no one seems to know
[Am7                      D]
What it is that makes him go


((REFRAIN:))
[          Am]
Then the lights begin to
[   Eaug/A]
  flicker
[         Am7             D7]
And the sound is getting dim
[     G               G/F#]
The voice begins to falter
[         Em]
And the crowds are getting
[  E7]
  thin
[        Am             Eaug/A]
But he never seems to notice
[         Am7           D]
He's just got to find another
[           E- CM7]
  place to play...

((CODA:))
[     E- CM7-]
  Anyway...
[          E- CM7-]
  Got to play...
