Something So Feminine About a Mandolin  Jimmy Buffett

By: Jimmy Buffett, Jane Slagsvol Buffett
This verse is played throughout the song.

Then reapt this again
[E]It was late in the evenin', just a [A]few of us [E]pickin'
But the [A]lady she [E]played so [A]easy and [B]fine[E] [B]
And the c[E]hords that she strummed were so t[A]astefully c[E]lever
They [F#m]planted this [Abm]song in [F#m]my [Em]mind
'Cause there's somethin' so feminine [A]about a [E]mandolin
The [A]way that they [E]feel, the [A]way that they [B]ring[E] [B]
Just to [E]see slender fingers, [A]movin' so quickly
[F#m]Made this [Abm]boy want [F#m]to [E]sing
And when I get older and I have a daughter
I'll teach her to sing and play her my songs
And I'll tell her some stories I can barely remember
And hope that she will sing along
And maybe one day she'll take a fancy to pickin'
'Cause when that bug bites you, you live with the sting
And if she could just strum a few simple measures
She could make some young man sing
'Cause there's somethin' so feminine about a mandolin
Way that they feel, the way that they ring
And that evenin' in a pasture somewhere near Austin
That mandolin made me sing
Her mandolin made me sing
