Gm7
In the mornin you go gunnin'For the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in But they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin' As they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn't hangin'  And they put you on the street \
       Cm7  Dm7  Ebmaj7 Dm7    
You go back Jack do it again
Gm7
Wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
       Cm7  Dm7  Ebmaj7 Dm7
You go back Jack do it again

Gm7
When you know she's no high climber Then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer  And you're sure you're near the end
Then you love a little wild one nd she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin'  You'll be on your knees tomorrow

       Cm7  Dm7  Ebmaj7 Dm7    
You go back Jack do it again

Gm7
Now you swear and kick and beg us  That you're not a gamblin' man
Then you find you're back in Vegas  With a handle in your hand
Your black cards can make you money  So you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey  You must put them on the table

       Cm7  Dm7  Ebmaj7 Dm7    
You go back Jack do it again
Gm7 Wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
       Cm7  Dm7  Ebmaj7 Dm7 You go back Jack do it again

~Title:                                   REELIN' IN THE YEARS                                     (Steely Dan)
                      D               A/C#            Bm7                 A
                                Your ever lastin' summer, you can see it fadin' fast,      D                       A/C#            Bm7                 A
                                So you grab a piece of somethin' that you think is gonna last.
      C#/E                          C/Eb          B/D           A/C#
                Well, you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand;
     D                     A/C#            Bm7            A

But C#/E   ,  C/Eb    etc for the third and fourth lines  ?????
If you try these chords, they sound pretty weird. C# with an E bass ?
If you try E with a C# bass it's almost right though I prefer these chorts :

   Em7                    B/D#             Dm7                A/C#
you wouldn't even know  a diamond  if  you held  it  in your  hand
Probably it was a slip up when it was typed in, cos' everything except this
line is Ok.

Kid charl
INTRO:  C7#9
VERSE 1:Am                          G6 While the music played you worked by candle light
      F6/9                                Bb13
Those San Fransisco nights, they were the best in town
Am                            G6
 Just by chance you crossed a diamond with a pearl

You turned it on the world, that's when you turned the world around

  Did you feel like Jesus      Did you realise
                 Em7               Fmaj7   Em7  Dm7
That you were a champion in their eyes ?

C7#9
VERSE 2:
--------
On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolour motorhome
Every A-frame had your number on the wall
You must have had it all
You'd go to LA on a dare and you'd go it alone
Could you live forever
Could you see the day
Did you feel your whole world fall apart and fade away

CHORUS :
---------
Dm7      Em7       Dm7      Em7
Get along            Get along Kid Charlemagne
Dm7     Em7                F7    G7     C7
 Get along Kid Charlemagne


VERSE 3:
--------
Now your patrons have all left you in the red
Your low rent friends are dead
This life can be very strange
All those day-glo freaks who used to paint their face
They've joined the human race, some things will never change
Son you were mistaken
You are obsolete, look at all the white men on the street

C7#9
VERSE 4:
--------
Clean this mess up else we'll all end up in jail
Those test tubes and the scales, just get it all out of here
Is there gas in the car ?
Yes there's gas in the car
I think the people down the hall know who you are
Careful what you carry
Cause the man is wise
You are still an outlaw in their eyes
