Billy Joel

album rock, classic rock, folk rock, mellow gold

Chords: C, F, Dm, Am6, C/G, C/E, G, Bb, F/A, Am, F#dim, Fm
This song is originally from Billy's first solo album, Cold Spring Harbor, released
November 1971. A fantastic live version of this song is on Songs In The Attic, Billy Joel's
first live album, which was recorded in June - July 1980 during the Glass Houses tour 
and was released September 10, 1981. Songs In The Attic features songs from Cold Spring
Harbor in a better form, since Billy's first album was sped up in studio and he "sounded 
like a chipmunk." He wasn't happy with the sound of the album, so Songs In The Attic 
was a way to make it better and sound more raw and personal.
