Makin' Music for Money  Jimmy Buffett

Intro: E (See below for tab)
[E]When I woke up this mornin'
I was [A]tired as I could [E]be
I [B]think I was countin' my money
When I [A]should a' been countin' [E]sheep
My agent he just called me
And told me what I should be
If I would make my music for money
Instead of makin' music for me
I said, "I [A]know that this may sound [E]funny
But [A]money don't mean nothin' to [E]me
I won't [A]make my music for [E]money
No, I'm gonna [B]make my music for [E]me"
He said, "The people only buy the love songs
Rock n' Roll and not too long"
He said, "Son you got to be commercial
If you want to turn the people on"
And I said, "Turnin' on the people
Now that's a beautiful place to be
But if I spend my time makin' them up a rhyme
Well, who's gonna turn on me?"
(Repeat Chorus)
Bridge: (Use bar/power chords)
 D-E D-E D-E-D-B-A#-A-E-G
 D-E D-E D-E-D-B-A#-A-E-G

Well now I went up to Country
And I'll tell you all about the scene
I found a place with much charm and much grace
That wasn't touched by the music machine
Whoa, the people were havin' a good time
Makin' music all day long
And nobody cared if they ever got paid
One penny for playin' a song
