Pencil Thin Mustache

Jimmy Buffett

 DF#7B7
 Now they make new movies in old black and white
 E7A7
 With happy endings, where nobody fights
 DF#7B7
So if you find yourself in that nostalgic rage
 E7A7
Honey, jump right up and show your age

Chorus:
 DF#7B7
     I wish I had a pencil thin mustache
 E7A7D
     The "Boston Blackie" kind
 DF#7B7
     A two toned Ricky Ricardo jacket
 E7A7
     And an autographed picture of Andy Devine

 DD7
     Oh I remember bein' buck-toothed and skinny
 GBb
     Writin' fan letters to Sky's niece Penny
 DF#7B7
     Oh I wish I had a pencil thin mustache
 E7A7D
     Then I could solve some mysteries too

Bridge:
 EmB7EmB7
Oh it's Bandstand, Disneyland, growin' up fast
 EmB7Em
 Drinkin' on a fake I.D.
 F#mC#7F#mC#7
And Rama of the jungle was everyone's Bawana
 E7A7
But only jazz musicians were smokin' marijuana
 DF#7B7
Yeah, I wish I had a pencil thin mustache
 E7A7D
then I could solve some mysteries too

(same as above chords with this verse)
But then it's flat top, dirty bob, coppin' a feel
Grubbin' on the livin' room floor (so sore)
Yeah, they send you off to college, try to gain a little knowledge,
But all you want to do is learn how to score

 DF#7B7
Yeah, but now I'm gettin' old, don't wear underwear
 E7A7
don't go to church and I don't cut my hair
 DF#7B7
But I can go to movies and see it all there
 E7A7D
Just the way that it used to be

Chorus:
That's why I wish I had a pencil thin mustache
The "Boston Blackie" kind, a two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket
And an autographed picture of Andy Devine

Oh, I could be anyone I wanted to be
Maybe suave Errol Flynn or a Sheik of Arabie
If I only had a pencil thin mustache
Then I could do some cruisin' too
 D
     Yeah, Bryl-cream, a little dab'll do yah
 E7A7D
     Oh, I could do some cruisin' too

nicaggie (report comment to admin):
In the bridge section the C7 should be C#7.
soheyman (report comment to admin):
Also there is an Fm right before the F#m at 'Rama of the jungle '.
