Death Of An Unpopular Poet

Jimmy Buffet


 GG/F#CGCC/BD
   I once knew a poet, who lived before his time
 GG/F#CGCC/BD
   He and his dog Spoonerwho listened while he rhymed
 EmBmCC/BFF/ED
   Words to make ya happy, words to make you cry  
 GG/F#CGCDGCG
   Then one day the poet suddenly did die  

But he left behind a closet, filled with verse and rhyme
Through some strange transaction one was printed in the Times
And everybody searchin for the king of underground
Well they found him down in Florida, with a tombstone for a crown

 CC/BD
   And everybody knows the lines 
 CC/BD
   From his book that costs $4.99
 CC/BD
   And I wonder if he knows he's doin
 CG
   Quite this fine

Cause his books are all best sellers, his poems were turned to songs
Had his brother on a talk show, though they never got along
And now he's called immortal, yes he's even taught in school
They say he used his talent, a most proficient tool

But he left all of his royalties, to Spooner his old hound
Growin old on steak and bacon, in a dog house 10 feet 'round
And everybody wonders, did he really lose his mind
No, he was just a poet who lived before his time.

He was just a poet who lived before his time.
