Its Five Oclock Somewhere  Alan Jackson

[G]The sun is hot, and[C] that old clock is moving s[D]low.
And so am I
[G]The work day passes [C]slower than molasses in [D]wintertime
But itís July
[C]Iím getting paid by the hour and [D]older by the minute
[C]The boss just pushed me [D]over the limit
[C]Iíd like to call him [D]something
[C]I think Iíll just [D]call it a d[G]ay

[G]Pour me something tall and strong. [C]Make it a hurricane [D]before I go insane
[G]Itís only half past twelve   [C]But I donít [D]care
[D]Itís five oíclock [G]somewhere
[G]This lunch break is [C]going to take all [D]afternoon
And half the night
[G]Tomorrow morning [C]I know thereíll be [D]hell to pay
Hey but thatís all right
[C]I havenít had a day off now [D]in over a year
[C]My Jamaican vacation [D]starts right here
[C]If the phones for me
[D]You can tell them I just sailed [G]away

Chorus Repeat
[C]I could pay up my tab. [D]Pour myself in a cab and [C]be back to work before [G]two.
[C]At a moment like this, [D]I canít help but wonder
[C]What would Jimmy Buffet d[G]o.   (I think he'd say....)

Chorus Repeat (and some general beach banter)
