He Went to Paris  Waylon Jennings

******************* HE WENT TO PARIS ********************
performed by Waylon Jennings.
Verse 1:
H[A]e went to Paris lookin' for answers to qu[D]estions
That b[E7]othered him s[A]o
He was impressive,young and agressive
S[D]avin' the world on his [E7]own
W[D]arm summer breezes,Fr[A]ench wine and cheeses
P[D]ut his ambition at [E7]bay
The s[A]ummers and winters scattered like splinters
And f[D]our or five y[E7]ears slipped aw[A]ay
Verse 2:
H[A]e went to England,played the piano,and m[D]arried
An a[E7]ctress named K[A]im
They had a good life,she was a good wife
And b[D]ore him a young son named J[E7]im
A[D]ll of the answers and [A]all of the questions
He l[D]ocked in his attic one d[E7]ay
'Cause he l[A]iked the quiet clean country livin'
And tw[D]enty more y[E7]ears slipped aw[A]ay
Verse 3:
W[A]ar took his baby,Bombs killed his lady and l[D]eft him
With [E7]only one e[A]ye
His body was battered,his whole world was shattered
A[D]ll he could do was just c[E7]ry
While the t[D]ears were fallin'[A] he was recallin'
Answ[D]ers that he never fo[E7]und
So he h[A]opped in a freighter,skidded the ocean
And l[D]eft England w[E7]ithout a so[A]und
Verse 4:
N[A]ow he lives in the islands,fishes the pilin' and dr[D]inks
His Gr[E7]een label each d[A]ay
Writing his memoirs,losin' his hearin'
But he d[D]on't care what most people s[E7]ay
After e[D]ighty-six years of p[A]erpetual motion
If he l[D]ikes you he'll smile and s[E7]ay
"Jimmy,s[A]ome of it's magic,probably tragic,
But i h[D]ad a good l[E7]ife all the w[A]ay"
He w[A]ent to Paris lookin' for answers to qu[D]estions
That b[E7]othered him s[A]o
