TREAT HER LIKE A LADY  Jimmy Buffett

[1979]     Chorus:
Some of us s[C]ailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us s[F]ailors call her our o[Dm7]wn
G[G]uess that's the reason w[G7]hy
I treat her like a l[C]ady[Am]
Just treat her like a l[F]a -- [Dm7]dy
Now I[C] don't like the sound of the ground movin' 'round
Or winds spinnin' out of c[F]ontrol
Calif[G]ornia earthquakes, only s[G7]eem to make a' me
Shake, rattle, and r[C]oll
I've been too long on the mainland
Hotels, rental cars, and phones
Time to cast 'em aside, catch the very next tide
And go back, where I belong
Chorus:
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us sailors call her our own
Guess that's the reason why
I treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
Now great whales travel the rhumb lines
Dodging those deadly harpoons
Spawning their young, as their ancestors done
In the depths of her hidden lagoons
There're times I find myself with them
And times I feel as they do
We're on a similar course, it's just a different source
But I'm in danger of extinction too
Chorus:
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us sailors call her our own
Guess that's the reason why
I treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
And miss her when I'm gone
(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) got to treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
Lady, lady
Lady, lady
Lady, lady
