The Wino and I Know

Jimmy Buffett

Intro: G C G G C G

 G
 The ice cream man he's a hillbilly fan

He's got seventy-eights by Hank Snow
 C
 Walks down the street, shufflin' his feet
 G
To the rhythm that only he knows
 BmC
And I've seen him in so many places
 BmFD
saw him on the night I was born 
 DG
 In a Bourbon Street bar, I received my first scar
 DCG
From an old man so tattered and torn 

Chorus:
 C
     And the wino and I know the pain of street singin'
 G
     Like the door-to-door salesman knows the pains of bell ringin'
 DC
     Strange situation, wild occupation
 G
     Livin' my life like a song

The coffee is strong at the Cafe Du Monde
And the donuts are too hot to touch
But just like a fool, when those sweet goodies cool
I eat till I eat way too much

'Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me
Be they pastry or lobster or love
I'm just tryin' to get by being quiet and shy
In a world full of pushin' and shove

Chorus:
And the wino and I know the pain of back bustin'
Like the farmer knows the pain of his pickup truck rustin'
Strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song

 DCG
 Sweet sen~orita won't you please come with me
 DCG
 Back to the island honey, back to the sea
 DCD
 Back to the only place that I want to be

Chorus:
And the wino and I know the joy of the ocean
Like a boy knows the joy of his milkshake in motion
Strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song
Yes it's a strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song
