Subject: Chords: A better place to be by Harry Chapin
This is my favorite Harry Chapin tune. I thought others might like it too.
It's pretty simple to play.

It was an early morning barrom and the place just opened up
EM A7
And the little man came in so fast and he started at his cup
D DMAJ7 D7 G
And the broad who served the whiskey was a big old friendly girl
EM A7
Who tried to fight her empty nights by smiling at the world
G A F#M B7
And she said hey bub it's been a while since you've been around
EM A G D
Where the hell have you been hiding and why you look so down
G A G A D
Well the little man just sat there like he'd never heard a sound
CM G Bb F
The waitress she gave out with a cough and acting not the least put off
EM A
She spoke once again

D G EM
She said I don't want to bother you consider it's understood
A EM A EM D
I know I'm not no beauty queen but I sure can listen good.
G A EM D
And the little man took his drink in his hand and he raise it to his lips
G D EM A D
He took a couple of sips and he told the waitress his story.
D AM C G D
I am the midnight watchman down at Miller's tool and dime
G F#M BM Cmaj7
I watch the metal rusting, I watch the time go by
A G F#M B7
A week ago at the diner I stopped to get a bite
EM A G EM D
And this here lovely lady she sat two seats from my right
G G EM A,G,G D
And lord, lord, lord she was alright.
She was so damn beautiful that she could warm a winter's frost
But she look long past lonely and I, I was lost
