Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Peanut Butter Conspiracy  Jimmy Buffett



[1973]                                     
[C]Looking back at my [G]hard luck days
I [F]really do have to [C]laugh
[C]Working in a dive for [G]twenty six dollars
[F]Spending it all on [G]grass
[F]We were hungry [C]hard luck heros
[F]Trying just to stay [G]alive
[F]We'd go down to the [C]corner drug
[D]This is how we'd sur[G]vive
Chorus:
     [C]Who's going to steal the peanut butter?
     [F]I'll get a can of sar[C]dines
     [C]Running up and down the aisle of the mini mart
     [F]Sticking food in our [G]jeans
     We [F]never took more than [C]we could eat
     There was [F]plenty left on the [G]rack
     [F]We all swore if we [C]ever got rich
     [G]We would pay the mini mart [C]back
     [F]Yes [C]sir!  [F]Yes [C]sir!
     [G]We would pay the mini mart [C]back


It was a two man operation
Had it all down on a note
Ricky would watch that big round mirror
And I'd fill up my coat

Then we'd head for the checkout aisle
With a lemon and a bottle of beer
Into to the car, got to make it on home
Supper time's gettin' near

(Repeat chorus)

I guess every good picker has had some hard times
I sure had my share
It's really kind of funny to laugh at it now
But I don't want to go back there

So every now and then when I'm in the grocery
I take a little but not much
You never know when those hard times will hit you
And I don't want to lose my touch

(Repeat chorus)
