In the Shelter  Jimmy Buffett

 

@SONG: In The Shelter
In the Shelter
[1971]  
Intro: A E A E
[E] In the shelter
In the mornin' as the sun is brightly glea[A]ming
[F#m] I heard her crying out, "What is it all about?
I [E]just don't know, but [A]I can't go back [E]home"
[E] Lonely princess
All the days out on your own are growing emp[A]ty
[F#m] Nothing is going well
If you could only tell them [E]how you feel
But t[A]hey're too real to [E]understand
Chorus:
[A] Too many trite expressions
Ending in forced rejections [E]long ago
[A] To many innocent faces
In too many far out places [E]somethings wrong
Let me tell you that [B]somethings wrong
It's been that [A]way so long, and it's a [E]shame
On the street car
To the city where she knows she may lose it all
Riding for just a dime, takin' her own sweet time
And knowing well that this could be her final fall
Past the boutique
To the alley down the river, people pass her by
She sits on a big gray rock, takes off her boots and socks
Not knowin' what she will do next just starts to cry
Chorus:
[A] Too many wild rejections
Endin' in angry questions [E]from her dad
[A] Too many T.V. dinners
Ah, everyone loves a winner, but [E]she was lost
[A]No one knows the t[E]rials she had
(Repeat first verse, then)
[E]Hell, I just don't know, but [A]I can't go back [E]home [A] [E] [A] [E] (fade)
