Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Words & Music:

Gary Portnoy & Judy Hart Angelo


G   D   G   D


G                      D                 G                 D

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.

Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.

Dm6          E7           Am

Wouldn't you like to get away?


All those nights when you've got no lights, the check is in the mail.

And your little angel hung the cat up by its tail.

And your third fiancˇe didn't show...


Sometimes you want to go



G          F               C   D

Where everybody knows your name.

And they're always glad you came

Bm                   C

You want to be where you can see

Our troubles are all the same.

Bm                   C         D          G   D   G   D

You want to be where everybody knows your name


Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead, the morning's looking bright.

And your shrink ran off to Europe and didn't even write.

And your husband wants to be a girl...

Be glad there's one place in the world


CHORUS:  [repeat and out]
