In the seventies, a lot of people did things that no one noticed. Nobody sees the minstral boy….even when under the spotlight.

One Man Band chords/lyrics: you’ll have to judge when to switch chords……..
Verse 1
G Am C
Well everybody knows down lipregro, You hav’ta leap to cross the street
D C G
You could lose your life under a taxi cab, you gotta have eyes in your feet

You find a nice soft corner and ya sit right down, pick up your guitar & play
D C G
Then the law man comes, says; move along and so ya move along all day

Chorus

Well I’m a one man band and nobody knows or understands
D C G
Is there anybody out there who wanna lend me a hand with my one man band

Verse 2
For three days now I haven’t eaten at all, my, my you must be getting so thin
Soon my cap won’t be large enough to put a half a crown in
So hey now mister don’t you look so sad, don’t look so ill at ease
Cause I can play ya any song you like to cheer up that like you lead

Chorus

C D Am
And oh, oh, oh, look at the rain falling
C D Am (pause) G
And oh, oh, oh look at the rain….. oh look at it rain

Verse 3
Nobody sees the minstrel boy as he sings his tail of whoa
Nobody sees him coming… and nobody sees him go
So hey now mister don’t you look so sad, don’t look so ill at ease
Cause I can play ya any song you like to cheer up that like you lead

Chorus x 2 and fade
