Flesh and Bone  Jimmy Buffett

By Jimmy Buffett
[Cmaj7] [Am] [Fmaj7] [F/G] [G]  
If [C]men came from Venus
And [Am]women came from Mars,
Then I'd be[C] lunching with my boyfriends
While you [Am]girls talked about cigars.
But [F]that's not how it happened;
Evo[D7]lution took a different turn.
[Dm7]We may be creatures with some unique features
But we've [G]still got a lot to learn.
We've made it nearly twenty centuries
A bunch of monkeys with PHD's.
Spun a web of communications
But it's all still a tangle to me.
I can't tell the spiders
From the dangling flies and moths.
I feel like some outsider,
Who seems to have his wires all crossed.
I can't [C]fax you my love.
I can't [Am]e-mail my heart.
I can't[C] see your face in cyberspace,
I don't [Am]know where to start.
I'm [F]light years behind from the [C]age they call stone[Am].
I'm a[C] carbon based caveman honey, just[G] flesh and bone[C].
[Am] I ain't no clone, I'm just flesh and bone
[C] Trying to connect with you.
[Am] I ain't no clone, I'm just flesh and bone
[C] Tryin' to get the message through.
[C] [Am] [C] [Am] [F] [C] [Am] [C] [G] 
Now we live in the age computers.
They run everything in the world.
And I'm a little behind on this technical climb
And you are an Internet girl.
I've got words but no processor.
I've got feelings but I don't know DOS.
So I just have to go back to basics
And try to get my point across.
Desperate for a glimpse of the future.,
We use crystals and cards and dice.
And that Y2K is coming our way.
They're talkin' 'bout some worldly strife.
It's time to think of simpler options.
It's time to formulate a big plan B,
So if your hard drive does crash,
I got some Krugerands stashed.
Come on and sail away with me.
I can't fax you my love.
I can't e-mail you my heart.
I can't see your face in cyberspace,
I don't know where to start.
I'm light years behind from the age they call stone.
I'm a carbon based caveman honey
Just flesh and bone.
[Am] I ain't no clone, I'm just flesh and bone.
[C] Just trying to connect with you.
[Am] I ain't no clone, I'm just flesh and bone.
[C] Let's run away to Timbuktu
[Am] [C] [Am] [C] [G] [C] [Am] [F] [G] [C]
