Hey Mister chords - James Taylor

James Taylor Lyrics


            [Capo III]

Hey mister, that's me upon the jukebox [D C Bm]
I'm the one that's singing this sad song [D C G]
I'll cry everytime that you slip in one more dime [D C Bm Esus E7]
And let the boy sing the sad one, one more time [Em7 A7 D Em7 A]

Southern California is as blue as the boy can be [Bm E7 Bm E7]
Blue as the deep blue sea [C G]
Won't you listen to me now [Bm E7]
I need your Golden Gated cities like a hole in the head [Bm E7 Bm E7]
Like a hole in the head, I'm free! [C G D ( C G A )]

I do believe I'm headed home [D F#m Bm]
Hey mister, can't you see that I'm as dry as a bone [C G A D]
I think I'll spend some time alone [Bm F#m G]
Unless you found a way of squeezing water from a stone [C G C A]

Let the doctor and the lawyer do as much as they can [Bm E7 Bm E7]
Let the springtime begin [C G]
Let the boy become a man [Bm E7]
I have wasted too much time just to sing you this sad song [Bm E7 Bm E7]
I've been this lonesome picker a little too long [C G D, Em7 A]

Hey mister, that's me upon the jukebox [D C Bm]
I'm the one that's singing this sad song [D C G] I'll cry everytime that you slip in one more dime [D C Bm Esus E7] And let the boy sing the sad one, one more time [Em7 A7 D, Em7 A] [fade on Bm-E7 progression] Well, I've been spreading myself thin these days, don't you know Good-bye.
