VERSE 1
G
 He's got a nice
D
 Little life
C               D
 And he's gonna live it, but on
G                D                   C     D
 Friday night he plays that mandolin
G            D
 Painted red, and he said
C              D
 It's not the best I know
         G   D           C       D
But it's mine, I'm gonna make it mine
 
G, D, C, D
 
VERSE 2
G                  D
 People there can't help but care
          C                   D
About the friendly music of a guy who's
G          D            C   D
 Getting by on their applause
    G          D
He's got a song that moves along
             C             D
He's got his local crowd tonight
   G          D              C   D
At Angelina's Family Bar and Grill
 
CHORUS
    G             D
He's got his heart on his sleeve
    C                  D
The song he plays just living free
G             D          C            D
 But who knows what goes through his mind
       G            D
When he plays a song that brings along
C           D
Everybody's saying
G                   D               C
Who's that boy that plays the mandolin?
D        G      D
 Mandolin       
C   D           G
 Oh yeah, mandolin
 
D, C, D
 
VERSE 3
    G          D
He's got a car, got a scar
      C            D
Like everyone he's got a few but,
G          D             C   D
 Everybody loves that mandolin
G            D
 Got his problems, bills to pay
     C           D
Somehow that boy finds a way
        G     D     C   D
Through paychecks in tip jars
 
CHORUS
    G             D
He's got his heart on his sleeve
    C                  D
The song he plays just living free
G             D          C            D
 But who knows what goes through his mind
       G            D
When he plays a song that brings along
C           D
Everybody's saying
G                   D               C
Who's that boy that plays the mandolin?
D        G      D
 Mandolin       
C   D           G
 Oh yeah, mandolin
 
(G), D, Am, D
 
BRIDGE
   Em               C
Oh he's the kind of guy
    D            G
Who never really wanted fame
    Em               C             D
His feet are planted firmly on the ground
   Em           C           D           G
He never wanted people to remember his name
   Em           C           D
He never wanted word to get around
              D*
That he found heaven on earth
 
CHORUS
 G             D
He's got his heart on his sleeve
    C                  D
The song he plays just living free
G             D          C            D
 But who knows what goes through his mind
       G            D
When he plays a song that brings along
C           D
Everybody's saying
G                   D               C
Who's that boy that plays the mandolin?
D        G      D
 Mandolin       
C   D           G
 Oh yeah, mandolin
 
G, D, C, D, G*
