G                C7              G
I come in here,  the bar on the corner
        D7               C7             G
And you ask why I'm here and if I'm the owner
G   C7
Oh, you see that I've got a bundle of green
G
You say that you are lonely and free
    C7
You build me up and turn me 'round
    D7
And maybe there's a chance that you'd be mad about me
       G
Oh, we groove on around on the ballroom floor
C7
We go back to the bar and have another drink more
    G               D7                    G
And maybe we'll see that we were meant to be
           C7
'Cause I'm looking, looking for someone
G
Looking,  looking for someone
G                          D7             G
Looking for someone at the corner street bar
            C7
Oh yes, I'm looking, looking for somebody new
G
Maybe there's a chance that I'll be mad about you
G                           D7            G
Oh, looking for love at the corner street bar
SOLO
G                      C7          G
Well I once had a wife and she was dizzy
            D7              C7                   G
She was the love of my life and her name it was Lizzy
      C7
Oh, I never used to go downtown
                 G
'Cause she would pet me underneath her tree
      C7
She'd bring me in and build me round
    D7
But now I'm just afraid that she forgot about me
        G
Oh, she breezed on down to the country club
    C7
She had herself a vodka martini and Love,
    G                D7                      G
She ain't been home, she's somewhere I could be
       C7
So I'm looking, looking for someone
G
Looking,  looking for someone
                           D7            G
Looking for someone at the corner street bar
          C7
Yeah, I'm looking, looking for somebody new
G
Maybe there's a chance that I'll be mad about you
                               D7            G
Oh, looking for someone at the corner street bar
