Jamaica mistaica  Gcc

[Bm]Some folks say th[A]at I've got [G]the perfect life.[A]
[Bm]Three swell kids,[A] lots of toys[G] and a lovely wife.[A]
[Bm]I fly. I[A] sail. I throw[G] caution to the wind.[A]
[Bm]Drift like a str[A]atus cloud a[G]bove the caribbea[A]n.
[Bm]But every now and then, [A] The dragons c[G]ome to call.[A]
[Bm]Just when you least expect i[A]t you'll be dodging can[G]non balls. [A]
[Bm]I've seen to much not to stay in [A]touch with a world full of [G]love and luck. [A]
[Bm]I've got a big suspicion 'bout ammuniti[A]on,  I never forget[Em] to duck. [A]
(Chorus)
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Come back, Come back , Back to Jamaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Don't you know we made a big mistaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye
[G7]And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky [F#]
[Bm]                       [A]            [G] [A]It was a beautiful day , the kind you want to toast
[Bm]We were treetop flyin'[A], movin' west al[G]ong the coast[A]
[Bm]Then we landed in the water, [A]just about my f[G]avorite thrill[A]
[Bm]When some asshole started firin', when [A]we taxied to Negri[G]l [A]
[Bm]Just about to lose my temper,[A] as I endeavored to [G]explain [A]
[Bm]We had only come for chicken, [A]we were not a ganja plan[G]e[A]
[Bm]                                    [A] [G]Wel[A]l you should have seen there faces, when they finally realized
[Bm]                                    [A] [Em] [A]We were not some coked up cowboys, sportin' guns and alibies
(Chorus)
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Come back, Come back , Back to Jamaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Don't you know we made a big mistaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye
[G7]And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky [F#]
(Bridge)
[Bm]They shot from the lighth[A]ouse,  they shot from th[G]e highway    [F#]
          [F]                          [F#] [Bm] [A]T[G]hey shot from the [F#]top of the cliff , they'd all gone haywire,  we're
catchin' fire
And there wasn't[F] even a spliff [F#]
[Bm]Well the word got out , [A]all over t[G]he island [A]
[Bm]Friends, s[A]trangers, they were all apol[G]ogizin'[A]
[Bm]Some thought me crazy f[A]or bein' way [G]to nice[A]
[Bm]But it's just another shit[A]ty day in paradis[Em]e [A]
(Chorus)
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Come back, Come back , Back to Jamaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Don't you know we made a big mistaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye
[G7]And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky [F#]
(Chorus)
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Come back, Come back , Back to Jamaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
Don't you know we made a big mistaica
G A D walk down F#M/Bm/A
We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye
[G7]And we promise not to shoot you ,  promise not to shoot you, [E]
[G7]Promise not to shoot you out of the sky [F#] [F] [Em] [Bm]
