Home » Piano Tutorials » Billy Joel Piano Man Sheet Music (Piano Tutorial)

This song by Billy Joel Piano Man is a really fantastic song. An all time favorite.
This song was one of the reasons I wanted to play the piano and so I promised myself I would make a clear piano tutorial with a Free Piano Man Sheet Music that will help people who are eager to play this song to be able to achieve this.

This piano tutorial is a bit harder then the other piano tutorials and that's because it is ment for piano solo. You'll be playing the melody in the right hand with and extre voice and the bass in the left hand. Use the Free Billy Joel Piano Man Sheet Music to cover what you didn't understand through the piano tutorial.

In the next chord the left hand will take the part of accomapnying and the right hand will play the melody.

Here are the lyrics to the song in case you'd like to sing along with playing.

Billy Joel Piano Man / Lyrics

Its nine oclock on a saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
Theres an old man sitting next to me
Makin love to his tonic and gin

He says, son, can you play me a memory?
Im not really sure how it goes
But its sad and its sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger mans clothes

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Chorus:
Sing us a song, youre the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, were all in the mood for a melody
And youve got us feelin alright

Now john at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And hes quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But theres someplace that hed rather be
He says, bill, I believe this is killing me.
As the smile ran away from his face
Well Im sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And hes talkin with davy whos still in the navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, theyre sharing a drink they call loneliness
But its better than drinkin alone

Chorus

Its a pretty good crowd for a saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
cause he knows that its me theyve been comin to see
To forget about life for a while
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, man, what are you doin here?

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

This song by Billy Joel Piano Man has beautiful lyrics. It's actually a nice idea to sing along with the melody. :)
