A Pirate Looks at Forty  Jimmy Buffett


Lines: 77
I'm only posting second hand stuff...
I did not write any of it!
DON'T FLAME ME!!! 'cause I don't wanta' here it.
With that out of the way I will continue Glen's work:
[G]Mother mother ocean, I have heard you call
[C]Wanted to sail upon your water since I was [Bm7]three [Am7]feet [G]tall
[G]You [Am7]seen [Bm7]it [Am7]all, [Bm7]you seen it [G]all
[G]Watched the men who rode you, switch from sail to steam
And [C]in your belly you hold the treasures, few [Bm7]have [Am7]ever [G]seen
[G]Most [Am7]of [Bm7]them [Am7]dream, [Bm7]most of them [G]dream
[G]Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
The [C]cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder
[C]I'm an over forty [Bm7]victim [Am7]of [G]fate
[G]Arri[Am7]ving [Bm7]to [Am7]late, [Bm7]arriving to [G]late
[G]I done a bit of smugglin', I've run my share of grass
I [C]made enough money to buy Miami, but I p**sed it [Bm7]away [Am7]so [G]fast
[G]Never [Am7]meant[Bm7] to [Am7]last, [Bm7]never meant to [G]last
[G]I have been drunk now for over two weeks, I passed out and
I rallied and I smoked a few reefs
[C]But I gotta stop wishin' I got to go fishin', down to[Bm7] Rock [Am7]Bott[G]om again
[G]Just[Am7] a [Bm7]few [Am7]friends, [Bm7]just a few [G]friends
[G]I go for younger women, lived with several a while
Though I [C]ran 'em away they come back one day, still could [Bm7]manage[Am7] a s[G]mile
[G]Just [Am7]takes[Bm7] a w[Am7]hile, [Bm7]just takes a [G]while
[G]Mother mother ocean, after all these years I've found
[C]Occupational hazzard beats an occupation [Bm7]just [Am7]not [G]around
[G]Feel [Am7]like[Bm7] I [Am7]drowned, [Bm7]gonna head up [G]town
[G]Feel [Am7]like[Bm7] I [Am7]drowned, [Bm7]gonna head up [G]town
