1. It's [C] nine [G] o'clock on a [F] Saturday [C]
The [F] regular [C] crowd shuffles [D7] in [G]
There's an [C] old man [G] sitting [F] next to me [C]
Making [F] love to his [G] tonic and [C] gin [G]
 
He says, [C] "Son, can you [G] play me a [F] memory [C]
I'm [F] not really [C] sure how it [D7] goes [G]
But it's [C] sad and it's [G] sweet and I [F] knew it com-[C] plete
When [F] I wore a [G] younger man's [C] clothes."

[F] Sing us a [C] song [D7] tonight [G]
Well, we're [C] all in the [G] mood for a [F] melody [C]
And [F] you've got us all [G] feeling [C] alright [G]
 
Now [C] John at the [G] bar is a [F] friend of mine [C]
He [F] gets me my [C] drinks for [D7] free [G]
And he's [C] quick with a [G] joke and he'll [F] light up your smoke [C]
But there's [F] some place that [G] he'd rather [C] be [G]
 
He says, [C] "Bill, I [G] believe this is [F] killing me." [C]
As the [F] smile ran [C] away from his [D7] face [G]
"Well I'm [C] sure that I [G] could be a [F] movie star [C]
If [F] I could get [G] out of this [C] place"

Who [F] never had [C] time for a [D7] wife [G]
And he's [C] talking with [G] Davy, who's [F] still in the Navy [C]
And [F] probably will [G] be for [C] life [G]
 
And the [C] waitress is [G] practicing [F] politics [C]
As the [F] businessman [C] slowly gets [D7] stoned [G]
Yes, they're [C] sharing a [G] drink they call [F] loneliness [C]
But it's [F] better than [G] drinking [C] alone [G]

And [F] you've got us all [G] feeling [C] alright [G]
 
It's a [C] pretty good [G] crowd for a [F] Saturday [C]
And the [F] manager [C] gives me a [D7] smile [G]
'Cause he [C] knows that it's [G] me they've been [F] coming to see [C]
To [F] forget about [G] life for a [C] while [G]
 
And the [C] piano, it [G] sounds like a [F] carnival [C]
And the [F] microphone [C] smells like a [D7] beer [G]
And they [C] sit at the [G] bar and put [F] bread in my jar [C]
And say, [F] "Man, what are [G] you doing [C] here?" [G]
 
Interlude:
[Am] la la la, di da [D7] da
