TREAT HER LIKE A LADY

Jimmy Buffett

 1979
      Chorus:
 C
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
 FDm7
Some of us sailors call her our own
 GG7
Guess that's the reason why
 CAm
I treat her like a lady 
 FDm7
Just treat her like a la -- dy
 C
Now I don't like the sound of the ground movin' 'round
 F
Or winds spinnin' out of control
 GG7
California earthquakes, only seem to make a' me
 C
Shake, rattle, and roll
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
