Sending The Old Man Home
By Jimmy Buffett
They[G]'re sending the [D]old [Db]man h[G]om[(E)]e,[G]
Back[G] where the bu[D]ffal[Db]o roa[D]m,[(A)] [D]
Out[C] in th[A]e Pacif[D]ic, they[G] say h[F#]e was the [E]best,
Now he[A]'s in his civvies, headin' h[D]ome like all the rest.
He'l[G]l never fo[D]rget [Db]Rosa [G]Le[(E)]e,[G]
Or s[G]leepless nights he f[C]ought [G]upon the[C] sea.
* C A D G F# E
He'll only have the memories, or great books by James Jones,
'Cause [A]they're sending the[D] old man hom[G]e.
Far[C]away... Far[G]away... Anothe[A]r life so very far a[D]way.
They'll tear down the officer's clubs,
And write off the overdue subs,
So let's drink to their memories, our heroes, and our pals,
To those crazy Navy fliers, to those swell Hawaiian gals.
The sailors will dance in the street,
Then they'll mothball the whole damn fleet,
We'll only have the picture books,
Of land, and sea, and foam,
'Cause they're sending the old man home.
He'll only have his memories, or great books by James Jones,
'Cause they're sending the old man home.

(This is a beginner's arrangement, so it is probably full of
errors, but the lyrics are correct. It is a great ballad though...)
