Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Its Five Oclock Somewhere  Alan Jackson

[D]The sun is hot and [A]that old clock is [Bm]movin slow and [A]so am I [D]
[D]Workday passes [A]like molassas in [Bm]wintertime but [A]it's July[D]
[G]I'm getting paid by the hour and [D]older by the minute
[A]my boss just pushed me [D]over the limit
[G]I'd like to call him something
[D]But i think I'll just call it a [A]day

[D]Pour me something [G]tall and strong
make it a [A]hurricane before [D]I go insane
[D]It's only half past [G]12 but I don't [A]care
It's five o'clock [D]somewhere [G]      [A]      [D]

[D]This lunch break is [A]gonna take all [Bm]afternoon and [A]half the night[D]
[D]Tomorrow mornin' [A]I know there'll be [Bm]hell to pay but baby [A]that's alright[D]
[G]I Ain't had a day off now in [D]over a year,
[A]my Jam.lacan vacation's gonna [D]start right here
if the [G]boss calls me, you can [D]tell him i
just sailed [A]away


D, G, A, D

[Bm]I can pay off my tab
G (barre)*
pour myself in a cab
and be [A]back to work before [D]2
[Bm]At a momment like this,
G (barre)*
I can't help but wonder,
[Em]what would Jimmy Buffet [A]do?


Repeat D, G, A D talk to yourself if you want, until the end of song etc. . .

* I think it sounds better with barre chords, but regular G works too.
