The Wino and I Know  Jimmy Buffett

Intro: G G C G G C G
[G]The ice cream man, he's a hillbilly fan
[G]Got seventy-eights by Hank Snow
[C]Walks down the street, shufflin' his feet
[G]To a rhythm that only he knows
And I've [Bm]seen him in so many [C]places
I [Bm]saw him the night I was [F]born[D]
[D]In a [G]Bourbon Street bar, I received my first scar
From an [D]old man so [C]tattered and [G]torn
Chorus:
And the [C]wino and I know the pain of street singin'
[G]Like a door-to-door salesman knows the pains of bell ringin'
[D]Strange situation, [C]wild occupation
[C]Livin' my life like a [G]song
[G]The coffee is strong at the Cafe Du Monde
[G]The donuts are too hot to touch
[C]Just like a fool, when those sweet goodies cool
[G]I eat till I eat way too much
'Cause I'm [Bm]livin' on things that ex[C]cite me
Be they [Bm]pastry, lobster or lo[F]ve[D]
[D]I'm just [G]tryin' to get by being quiet and shy
In a [D]world full of [C]pushin' and [G]shovin?
Chorus:
And the [C]wino and I know the pain of back bustin'
[G]Like the farmer knows the pain of his pickup truck rustin'
[D]Strange situation, [C]wild occupation
[C]Livin' my life like a [G]song
[D]Sweet senorita won't you [C]please come with [G]me
[D]Back to the island honey, [C]back to the [G]sea
[D]Back to the only place that [C]I want to [D]be
Chorus:
[C]And the wino and I know the joy of the ocean
[G]Like a boy knows the joy of his milkshake in motion
[D]Strange situation, [C]wild occupation
[C]Livin' my life like a [G]song
Yes it?s a [D]strange situation, [C]wild occupation
[C]Livin' my life like a [G]song
