Twelve Volt Man  Jimmy Buffett

By Jimmy Buffett
I [F9]never got a grip on penmanship
Could never make the small L's [Bb]flow
[F9]Seldom found the trick to arith-a-metic
Three plus two be [Bbmaj7]mo' pas
But [Bbmaj7]ask for some[C] palm trees
Or [Bbmaj7]tales from the[C] South Seas
And I [Bbmaj7]just might [C]turn your [F]head
I never had the clout to knock one out
But hitting was the name of my game
Standing on third as the coaches conferred
Close to my first claim to fame
Just give me the steal sign
And I'll make home plate mine
And I just might turn some heads
[Bb7]Sometimes I may get a little [F]drastic
[Bb7]Sometimes I just let my feelin's [F]show
[Bb7]Sometimes I may be a bit [F]sarcastic
[G]Most times that's the way the story [C]goes
Now I now this Joe down in Mexico
He went there to work on his tan
For years he's been plugged into blenders and songs
They call him the Twelve Volt Man
He don't need no charge card
Just give him a Die Hard
And he'll makes sparks fly 'round your head
Oh just ask for some palm trees
Or tales from the South Seas
And I'll make sparks fly 'round your head
'Round your head
In your head (7 times)
In your head...
Timothy B. Schmit did the background vocals on this song.
If you can get him to do the background vocals for you it
REALLY helps make the song sound great!
