Say Goodbye To Hollywood

Words & Music:

Billy Joel



Bobby's drivin' through the city tonight through the lights


In a hot new rent-a-car.


He joins the lovers in his heavy machine, it's a scene

           F   C    F

Down on Sunset Boulevard



Dm7                       G7              Am

Say goodbye to Hollywood; say goodbye, my baby.

F                         G7              C

Say goodbye to Hollywood; say goodbye, my baby.



Johnny's takin' care of things for a while and his style

Is so right for troubadours.

They got him sitting with his back to the door;

Now, he won't be my fast gun anymore.





CM7                       B    Em          C             G       D

Movin' on is a chance you take anytime you try to stay together, whoa.

CM7               B         Em            C

Say a word out of line, you find that the friends you had

    G       Dm       G

Are gone forever, forever.


So many faces in and out of my life, some will last,

Some will just be now and then.

Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes,

I'm afraid it's time for goodbye again.
