This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.
"A MINOR VARIATION" by Billy Joel www.billyjoel.com From his 1993 River of Dreams album Words and music by Billy Joel Transcribed by T-rev www.t-rev.net E7 Am* E Am* E Am* Some days I have to give right in to the blues Despite how I try E Am* E Am* To keep fighting, it's a sure shot I'm going to lose C#m And I'll tell you why You think I'm crazy D It's such a sad composition C#m But can you blame me D7 For what's been causing my bad disposition? B7 C7 B7 Ain't nothing new with my blue situation C7 B7 Bb7 A7 And nothing's fine, it's just a minor variation When troubles want to find me I ain't hard to find They know where I am Like a hungry pack of wolves when it's feeding time They tear up a man And it's a strange thing 'Cause now it don't really matter More of the same thing Don't even hurt it's all a part of the pattern But still in all it's just a small consolation I just define it as a minor variation A7 Bb7 Ain't no way to fight 'em darling A7 Bb7 Ain't no way around 'em baby A7 Bb7 Ain't no way to take 'em B7 Nowhere to hide and believe me I've tried to shake 'em I'm getting to the point where I don't feel the pain And I've had enough I'm ready for the next time it hits me again 'Cause I've gotten tough It doesn't faze me And now I've made my decision I may be crazy It's not as though I don't know that condition Until I'm through with this blue situation Pass me the wine, it's just a minor variation Ain't nobody's business, baby Ain't nobody's worry darlin' Ain't nobody's problem No way to win when you've already been forgotten And it's a strange thing 'Cause now it don't really matter More of the same thing Don't even hurt me, it's a part of the pattern Until I'm through with this blue situation Pass me the wine, it's just a minor variation Transcribed 2022-05-08 by T-rev More tab available at www.t-rev.net 0xx434 E7 or 076700 Am* = x0555x hx0755x Am x0655x Am,maj7 x0555x Am7 046654 C#m x57775 D x57575 D7 x24242 B7 x35353 C7 x13131 Bb7 x02020 A7
