Son of a Son of a Sailor

Jimmy Buffett


 GFCG
                      (two times)
 G
 As the son of a son of a sailor
 FCG
 I went out on the sea for adventure
 CG
 expanding the view of the captain and crew
 DG
 Like a man just released from indenture

 G
 As a dreamer of dreams and a traveling man
 FCG
 I have chalked up many a mile
 CG
 Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks
 DG
 And I learned much from both of their styles

 FC
      Son of a son, son of a son
 G
      Son of a son of a sailor
 FC
      Son of a gun, load the last ton
 G
      One step ahead of the jailer

Now away in the near future
Southeast of disorder
You can shake the hand of the Mango man
As he greets you at the boarder

And the lady she hails from Trinidad
Island of the spices
Salt for your meat and cinnamon sweet
And the rum is for all your good vices

 FC
      Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind
 G
      That our forefathers harnessed before us
 FC
      Hear the bells ring as the tide rigging sings
 G
      It's a son of a gun of a chorus

Where it all ends I can't fathom my friends
If I knew I might toss out my anchor
So I'll cruise along always searching for songs
Not a lawyer a thief or a banker

But the son of a son, son of a son
Son of a son of a sailor
Son of a gun, load the last ton
One step ahead of the jailer
I'm just a son of a son, son of a son
Son of a son of a sailor

 FC
      The sea's in my veins, my tradition remains
 G
      I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer
