Songwriters: Slater, James T.; Vassar, Phil

Well, I walked down Broadway, smile on my face
Nashville has music all over the place
Honky tonks line the streets
Man, it's a symphony of big dreams and dive bars
Cold beer and tip jars, rising stars
Now, I love guitars, but

Where have all the pianos gone
I miss those days, Billy Joel on the radio
Stevie Wonder rocking me, Elton John in the '70s
Sing your song, where have all the pianos gone

Dad played me Ray Charles when I was a kid
Nothing could move me the "Georgia" did
It spoke to me, yeah, with soul and a melody
The rhyme and the rhythm, and I'd sing along with 'em
On my back porch, I carry the torch

Where have all the pianos gone
I miss those days, Milsap on the radio
Jerry Lee rocking me, Manilow in the '70s
I write the songs, where have all the pianos gone

I've played "Rocket Man" and "Piano Man" till three a.m
And I'm singing my own songs, this is who I am
I'm lighting up the black and whites
That's me tonight, but

Where have all the pianos gone
I miss those days, Billy Joel on the radio
Stevie Wonder rocking me, Elton John in the '70s
Sing your song, where have all the pianos gone

Billy Joel on the radio
Elton John in the '70s
Where have all the pianos gone
Where have all the pianos gone
Where have all the pianos gone
