Saxophones

Jimmy Buffett

 EAE
 I cut my teeth on Gumbo rock, Benny Spellman and Dr. John
Sweet Erma Thomas and Frogman Henry
 B
Used to boogie woogie all night long
 A
 Though I love rock n' roll the acoustic guitar 
 E
Was the only way I had of becomin' a star
 A
I'm doin' really nice and travellin' around
 BAB
But they won't play my record in my old home town

Chorus:
 EA
     But if I had saxophones
 E
     Yeah, big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
 A
     If I had saxophones
 BA
     I could get some recognition from that Mobile, Alabama D.J. 

Livin' by the ocean, sometimes I get the notion
To take my Janey downtown
We hang out in a funky little bar
They call it the "Shipwreck Lounge"
Well we get kind of drunk and we play rock n' roll
Grabbin' everybody right down in his soul
When we get to cookin' somethin's still wrong
There's still somethin' missin' from them good ole songs

Chorus:
But if we had saxophones
Big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
If we had saxophones
I could make that joint shimmy like a big California earthquake

Yeah if we had saxophones
Yeah, big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
If we had saxophones
I could get some recognition from that Mobile, Alabama D.J.
