Nautical Wheelers  Jimmy Buffett


Intro: A D D6 (see bottom for chord diagrams)
[A] [D] [A] [D]  
N[A]autical Wheelers who c[D]all themselves sa[A]ilors
play f[D]iddle tunes under the s[A]tars.[A7]
P[D]etti-coats rustle, w[A]orking shoes s[F#m]cuffle,
h[B7]ustle on down to the b[E]ars.
W[D]here the juke-box is blastin' and the l[A]iquor is f[A7]lowin'
an o[D]ccasional bo[A]ttle of w[E]ine.[E7]
That's 'cause e[D]veryone here is just [A]more than contented
to be li[E]ving and d[E7]ying in th[D]ree quarter [A]time.
[A] And it's [E7]dance with me, dance with me [D]Nautical Wh[A]eelers,
ta[D]ke me to s[A]tars that you k[E]now.[E7]
Come on and [F#m]dance with me, dance with me [D]Nautical Wh[A]eelers,
[E]I want so b[E7]adly to [A]go.
2. Well, the left foot it'll follow
where the right foot has travelled,
down to the sidewalks unglued.
And into the street of my city so neat,
where nobody cares what you do.
And Sonna's just grinnin' and Phil is ecstatic
and Mason has jumped in the sea.
And I'm hangin' on to a line from my sailboat
Oh, [E7]Nautical Wheelers save [A]me.
(repeat Chorus)
3. Well the sunrise will bring on
the sleep that's escaped us
and everyone's off to their beds.
There'll be huggin' and squeezin'
a little pleazin' and teasin'
and rubbin' of each other's heads.
So won't you dream on comrades, seems nothin' escapes you,
nothin', no reason, nor rhyme.
That's 'cause everyone here is just more than contented
to be living and dying in three quarter time.
(repeat chorus and fade)
