Stuck In The Middle With You

Words & Music:

Gerry Rafferty (Stealer's Wheel)



Well, I don't know why I came here tonight.

I got the feeling that something ain't right.


I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair.


And I'm wondering how I'll get down those stairs.



A                     C             G

Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right,


Here I am stuck in the middle with you.


Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you

And I'm wondering what it is I should do.

It's so hard to keep this smile from my face.

Losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place.





          G                                                                 D

Well, you started off with nothing and you're proud that you're a self-made man.


And your friends, they all come crawling,

                               D7          A7

Slap you on the back and say, "Please?!"  "Please?!"


Tryin' to make some sense of it all,

But I can see it makes no sense at all.

Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?

I don't think that I can take it any more.










Stuck in the middle with you.

Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you.
