Guitar chords with lyrics

Intro


verse 1
      A chord diagramE MajorE
I was sitting in a diner with a girl named Flo
    A chord diagramA augmentedA
She wouldn't say yes, but she couldn't say no
          A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramB7B7                  A chord diagramE MajorE
She said, "Darling, can I get a middle man "
        A chord diagramE MajorE
She was engaged to a fellow on the lay-a-way plan
        A chord diagramA augmentedA
But she carried all her money in a coffee can
          A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramB7B7                  A chord diagramE MajorE
She said, "Darling, can I get a middle man "

Bridge
    A chord diagramA augmentedA
The cook looked over with a short order face
A chord diagramE MajorE
Dropped a fork and he saw Flo's legs
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Straightened his apron and burned my eggs
      A chord diagramB7B7
I got competition everywhere I go these days

A chord diagramE MajorE
Leaning on the juke box lookin' real good

Like Natalie Wood on a Pontiac hood

I said, "Darling, I think I need a little hand.
             A chord diagramE MajorE
Ya see, I've seen my downs, I've seen my ups
       A chord diagramA augmentedA
I seen miniature dogs in coffee cups
     A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramB7B7                  A chord diagramE MajorE
But darling I ain't never seen a middle man."


Bridge

Flo talked slow like real wet paint
             A chord diagramE MajorE
She said, "A middle man's there when the other ones ain't
           A chord diagramA augmentedA
He's got a left handed manner that leans to the right
A chord diagramB7B7
Sleeps all day and keeps it up all night"


verse 3
         A chord diagramE MajorE
I got an aunt in Ohio and a boat that won't row
     A chord diagramA augmentedA
Some veterans insurance and nowhere to go
A chord diagramE MajorE         A chord diagramB7B7                   A chord diagramE MajorE
"Darling, can I be your middle man "


Bridge
A chord diagramA augmentedA
If I could get the money in that coffee can
        A chord diagramE MajorE

Send all the kids off to Pakistan
A chord diagramB7B7
Make Flo happy if I can

Darling, I think I got the perfect plan
            A chord diagramE MajorE
We're gonna save half a dollars and sell 'em to France
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Buy us a record and learn how to dance
