MINSTREL IN THE GALLERY 
ACUSTIC PART 

capo2 

A       Am           C   F  G             D              G A 
The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces. 
 F           C                     F G 
He met the gazes --- observed the spaces 
 D                      G A 
between the old men's cackle. 
A           Am        C      F  G 
He brewed a song of love and hatred 
     G             D              G A 
--- oblique suggestions --- and he waited. 
F      C          F  G  C            F C      G 
He polarized the pumpkin-eaters --- static-humming 
  G          C 
  panel-beaters --- 
F      C            F    G      C 
freshly day-glow'd factory cheaters 
G             D              G A 
  (salaried and collar-scrubbing). 
(REST THE SAME) 

He titillated men-of-action --- belly warming, hands 
  still rubbing on the parts they never mention. 
He pacified the nappy-suffering, infant-bleating 
  one-line jokers --- T.V. documentary makers 
  (overfed and undertakers). 
Sunday paper backgammon players --- family-scarred 
  and women-haters. 
        F          C      F   G    C 
Then he called the band down to the stage 
     F             Em      Dm     Am Am/G Am/F#  F    A 
and he looked at all the friends he'd made.
