And then he just keeps playing F in different ways,
listen to the song. ( 2:42 - 2:51 )


                                         F
You're walking like you never seen the light
F
You're walking like it every night
A#
But I've never seen you dance,
C
and I've never heard you sing
Am                   D   C# C      G  C(Stop)
So how can it mean a single thing

It's all so rudimentary

            F    Am
but tell me baby how does it feel
D                               A#        A
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

F                     Am         A#
And they all get them out for
                C
The boys in the band

F                   Am           A#
They twist and they shout for
                    C            F
For the boys in the band
