He went to paris   Jimmy Buffett




Note:  The best way that I have found to play this song is to play in the key of G, and capo at the 2nd fret.  Gives a better sound, and more "rolling" feel to it.

G					C			    G
He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions that bothered him so.
G					C			  D     Dsus4
He was impressive, young and agressive, savin' the world on his own.  
        C			 G			C                    D  Dsus4
But the warm summer breezes, the French wine and cheese put his ambition at bay
   G
The summers and winters scattered like splinters 
       C              D7         G
And four or five years slipped away.


G                                               C                        G
Then he went to England, played the piano, and married an Actress named Kim.
G					       C			   D    Dsus4
They had a fine life, she was a good wife and bore him a young son named Jim.
     C			    G			      C                     D  Dsus4
And all of the answers and all of the questions he locked in his attic one day
 G
'Cause he liked the quiet clean county livin'
      C           D7            G
And twenty more years slipped away.


G                                                       C                         G
Well the war took his baby, the bombs killed his lady, and left him with only one eye.
G					              C	                        D Dsus4
His body was battered, his whole world was shattered, all he could do was just cry.
     C			        G	         C                   D  Dsus4
While the tears were a-fallin' he was recallin' answers he never found.
G                                                     C           D         G
So he hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean And left England without a sound.


G                                                    C                            G
Now he lives in the islands, fishes the pilin's and drinks his Green Label each day.
G                                                C                      D  Dsus4
Writing his memoirs, losin' his hearin', but he don't care what people say.
C                            G                       C                                D
Through eighty-six years of perpetual motion, if he likes you he'll smile,then he'll say
G                                                      C            D            G      
"Jimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, But I had a good life all the way."
G                                           C               D           G
And he went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions that bothered him so.
