		  G          Fmaj7      Em                
		I slept last night in a good hotel 
		       Am         C        F C
		I went shopping today for jewels
		    G            Fmaj7        Em 
		The wind rushed around in the dirty town 
		        Am           C             F C
		And the children let out from the schools
		      Am                  G
		I was standing on a noisy corner
		C               G       F Em D
		Waiting for the walking green
		G                    Fmaj7        Em
		Across the street he stood and he played real good
		       Am    C       F C Em D
		On his clairinet for free
	
	
		    G    Fmaj7    Em
		Now me I play for fortune
		          Am     C       F C
		And those velvet curtain calls
		           G         Fmaj7     Em 
		I've got a black limosuine and two gentlemen
		  Am         C      F C
		Escorting me to the halls
		         Am                   G
		And I'll play If you have the money
		   C           G         F Em D
		Or if you're a friend to me
		G               Fmaj7       Em
		But the one man band by the quick lunch stand
		       Am           C        F C Em D
		He was playing real good for free
	
		
		G      Fmaj7      Em
		Nobody stopped to hear him
	                  Am        C         F C
		Though he played so sweet and high
		         G           Fmaj7      Em 
		And they knew he had never been on their T.V.
		        Am         C     F C
		So they passed his music by
		  Am                   G
		I meant to go over and ask for a song
		      C        G     F Em D
		Mayby put on a harmony
		  G             Fmaj7      Em
		I heard his refrain as the signal changed
		       Am           C        F C Em D
		He was playing real good for free
