********************** THE ENTERTAINER ************************
written by Billy Joel
performed by Waylon Jennings.

Capo on the 1st fret.

Verse 1:
      D                          G
	I am the entertainer,i know just where i stand
                     D                         A
	Another serenader,another long-haired man
         D                          G 
	Today i am your champion,i may have won your hearts
                                    A 
	But i know the game,you'll forget my name
               G                 A
	And i won't be here in another year
                                 D 
	If i don't stay on the charts


Verse 2:
      D                            G
	I am the entertainer,i've had to pay my price
                                      D                         A  
	The things i did not know at first,i learned by doin' twice
            D                                G  
	Ah,but still they come to haunt me,still they want their say
                                         A  
	So i've learned to dance with a hand in my pants
              G                  A
	Just rub my neck and i write'em a check
                              D 
	And they go on their way


Verse 3:
      D                       G
	I am the entertainer,been all around the world
                                   D                           A 
	I've played all kinds of places,i've laid all kind of girls
           D                      G                 
	I can't remember faces,i don't remember names
                                   A 
	Ah,but what the hell,it's just as well
               G                     A
	'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
                            D
	It all becomes the same


Verse 4:
      D                         G   
	I am the entertainer,i come to do my show
                                   D                       A
	You've heard my latest record,it's been on the radio
               D                             G
	Ah,it took me years to write it,the best years of my life
                                      A
	It's a beautiful song,but it ran too long
                G                          A
	If you wanna have a hit,you gotta make it fit
                                  D
	So they cut it down to 3:05


Verse 5:
      D                          G  
	I am the entertainer,the idol of my age
                               D                     A   
	I make all kinds of money,when i go on the stage
                   D                          G
	Ah,you've seen me in the papers,i've been in the magazines
                             A          
	But if i go cold my future gets sold
                 G                      A
	They'll put in the back in the discount rack
                             D  
	Like another can of beans


Verse 1
