IN THE SHELTER

Jimmy Buffett

 1971
      Intro:  A  E    A  E
 E
     In the shelter
 A
    In the mornin' as the sun is brightly gleaming
 F#m
     I heard her crying out,  "What is it all about?
 EAE
    I just don't know, but I can't go back home"
 E
     Lonely princess
 A
    All the days out on your own are growing empty
 F#m
     Nothing is going well
 E
    If you could only tell them how you feel
 AE
    But they're too real to understand
Chorus:
 A
     Too many trite expressions
 E
     Ending in forced rejections long ago
 A
     To many innocent faces
 E
     In too many far out places somethings wrong
 B
     Let me tell you that somethings wrong
 AE
     It's been that way so long, and it's a shame
On the street car
To the city where she knows she may lose it all
Riding for just a dime, takin' her own sweet time
And knowing well that this could be her final fall
Past the boutique
To the alley down the river, people pass her by
She sits on a big gray rock, takes off her boots and socks
Not knowin' what she will do next just starts to cry
Chorus:
 A
     Too many wild rejections
 E
     Endin' in angry questions from her dad
 A
     Too many T.V. dinners
 E
     Ah, everyone loves a winner, but she was lost
 AE
     No one knows the trials she had
(Repeat first verse, then)
 EAEAEAE
 Hell, I just don't know,  but I can't go back home               (fade)
