LONE PALM

Jimmy Buffett

 DAEADAEAEA
                         My garden is filled with papayas and mangos
 EA
My life is a mixture of reggaes and tangos
 DAE
 Taste for the good life, I can live it no other way
 DA
While out on the beach there are two empty chairs
 DA
That say more than the people who ever sit there
 DAE
From under my lone palm I can look out on the day
Chorus:
 DAEA
       Where no bird flies by my window
 DAEA
       No ship is tied to my tree
 DA
       Love is a wave building to a crescendo
E (Intro chords)
Ride if you will, ride it with me
I know this girl made memories and phrases
Who lived her whole life in both chapters and phrases
Danced 'till the dawn, wished all her worries away
Well she wasn't crazy, no she wasn't mad
She just wanted the father that she never had
From under my lone palm I think about her today
Chorus
Bridge:
 F#mA
 We sailed from the port of indecision
 F#mA
 Young and wild with oh so much to learn
 GDEF#m
 Days turn into years as we tried to fool our fears
 DEA
But to the port of indecision I returned
My gardens are filled with papayas and mangos
My life is a mixture of jingles and jangles
Come Christmas winds and blow all my worries away
Chorus

@SONG: Delaney Talks to Statues
@CHORDS: Sean Costello (costells@guvax.georgetown.edu)
DELANEY TALKS TO STATUES
By: Jimmy Buffett, Mac McAnally, Amy Lee
Intro: A E B E A B E
 AEBEABEAEBEABE
                       Delaney talks to statues as she dances 'round the pool
 AEBEABE
 She chases cats through Roman ruins and stomps on big toadstools
 AEBEABAE
 She speaks a language all her own that I can not discover
 AEBEABAE
 But she knows I love her so when I tuck her 'neath the covers
Chorus:
 AEBEAEBE
     Father, daughter, down by the water
 AEBEAEBE
     Shells sink, dreams float-- life's good on our boat
Delaney draws me pictures, she finger paints the sand
We chase the dogs and hop like frogs, then I do my bad handstand
She's growing up too fast for me and asking lots of questions
Some I know the answers to and some I'm looking for suggestions
Chorus:
Father, daughter, born by the water
Surf's up, sun's down-- life in a beach town
Bridge:
 C#mG#mAB
 And some of the things I've seen maybe she won't have to see
 C#mG#mAB
 But there's a lot I want to pass along that was handed down to me
*Repeat first verse and Chorus

 CDGDCGDG
Whoa-oh, what I want know-oh, where does the time go?
