Modern Woman – Billy Joel
Intro:
FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | 2X

Verse 1:
FEb6 |                    FEb6 |
You see her sitting with her coffee and her paper
FEb6 |                  FF13/A |
With her high top sneakers of Italian design
BbAb6  |        BbAb6  |
With a long cool stare she aggravates the tension
BbAb6  |        BbC     |
Makes up her face while she makes up her mind
FEb6 |                    FEb6 |
Now you're in trouble, maybe she's an intellectual
FEb6 |                  FF13/A |
What if she figures out you're not very smart
      BbAb6  |                  BbAb6  |
Or maybe she's the quiet type who's into heavy metal
BbAb6  |        Bb   |
Boy, you got to get it settled, cause she's breaking your heart

Chorus:
C     –                               Dm11 |
Don't try to put on an act
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | Bb/F   -  C/E   |
You can't do that to a modern woman
C     –                               Dm11 |
And you're an old fashioned man
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | F   |
She understands the things you're doin'
Eb |
She's a modern woman

Intro:
FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 |

Verse 2:
FEb6 |           FEb6 |
She looks sleek and she seems so professional
FEb6     |               FF13/A |
She's got a lot of confidence, it's easy to see
BbAb6  |        BbAb6  |
You want to make a move but you feel so inferior
BbAb6  |        BbC     |
Cause under that exterior is someone who's free
FEb6 |                    FEb6 |
She's got style and she's got her own money
FEb6 |                  FF13/A |
So she's not another honey you can quickly disarm
      BbAb6  |      BbAb6  |
She's got the eyes that make you realize
BbAb6      |         Bb     |
She won't be hypnotized by your usual charm


Chorus*:
C     –                               Dm11 |
You've got your plan of attack
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | Bb/F   -  C/E   |
That won't attract the modern woman
C     –                               Dm11 |
When you're an old fashioned man
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | F   |
She understands the things you're doin'
Eb |
She's a modern woman

Interlude:
FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 |
DbM7 | Eb6 | DbM7 | AbM7 | DbM7 | Eb6 | DbM7 | Csus4 | % |
FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 |

Verse 3:
FEb6 |           FEb6 |
Time goes by and you're sharing an apartment
FEb6     |               FF13/A |
She says she loves you but she doesn't know why
BbAb6  |        BbAb6  |
In the morning she leaves you with your coffee and your paper
BbAb6  |        BbC     |
It's a strange situation for an old fashioned guy
FEb6 |                    FEb6 |
But times have changed things are not the same, baby
FEb6 |                  FF13/A |
You overcame such a bad attitude
                  BbAb6    |                 BbAb6  |
Rock and roll just used to be for kicks and nowadays it's politics
BbAb6      |         Bb     |
And after 1986 what else could be new

Chorus**:
C                    –             Dm11 |
You got to learn to relax
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | Bb/F   -  C/E   |
And face the facts of modern woman
C     –                               Dm11 |
When you're an old fashioned man
         Am7Bb |    F/AGm7   | F   |
She understands the things you're doin'
Eb |
She's a modern woman

Outro:
FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 | FEb6 |  (till fade)


This is 100% correct! Have fun!!
