A Pirate Looks At Forty Jimmy Buffett
# A Pirate Looks at Forty By: Jimmy Buffett G Mother, mother ocean I have heard you call C D I wanted to sail upon your waters Am7 G since I was three feet tall Am D You've seen it all Am7 G You've seen it all I watched the men who rode you Switch from sails to steam And in your belly you hold the treasure That few have ever seen Most of them dreams Most of them dreams Yes, I am a pirate Two hundred years too late The cannons don't thunder There's nothin' to plunder I'm an over forty victim of fate Arriving too late Arriving too late I've done a bit of smugglin' I've run my share of grass I made enough money to buy Miami But I pissed it away so fast Never meant to last Never meant to last I have been drunk now For over two weeks, I passed out and I rallied And I sprung a few leaks, But I've got stop wishin' Got to go fishin' I'm down to rock bottom again Just a few friends Just a few friends I go for younger women Lived with several awhile And though I ran away They'll come back one day And I still can manage a smile It just takes a while Just takes a while Mother, mother ocean After all these years I've found My occupational hazard being My occupation's just not around I feel like I've drowned Gonna head uptown
