A7  G/B    D    D6      D        A7     A9 A7
Cab dri - ver, drive by Mary's place; 

A9     A7     A9        A7       D   D6   D   D6
I just want a chance to see her face. 

D     DM7       D7             G   G/F#   G/E  G/B
Don't stop the meter, let it race --

A7         A9   A7      A9      D    Cdim  Em7   A7
Cab driver,   drive by Mary's place.


Cab driver, once more 'round the block; 
Never mind the tickin' of the clock.
I only wish we could have had a talk --
Cab driver, once more 'round the block. 

Cab driver, once more down the street; 
There's a little place we used to eatů
That's where I laid my future at her feet. 
Cab driver, once more down the street.

Cab driver, wait here by the door;
Perhaps I'll hold in my arms once more.
Then things will be just like they were before --
Cab driver, wait here by the door.

A7   D      D6     Cdim     Em7    A7
Cab driver, better take me home;

  Em7       G/B    A7      A7+5   D6
I guess that I was meant to  be  alone. 

   D        DM7     D7       D7/F#     G   G/F#   G/E  G/B
I hope God sends a loved one   of  my own;

A7         A9   A7   A7+5      D    DM7  B7
Cab driver,    better take me home.


Coda:

G/B  A7      G/B   A7+5     D     DM7  B7
Cab driver, better take me home 

G/B  A7      G/B   A7+5     D     G    D - A7 - D6
Cab driver, better take me home
