Jimmy Buffett - Coastal Confessions guitar chord

Coastal Confessions

by Jimmy Buffett

(Haven't tabbed this out yet but here are the chords)

E

Well I'm a tidal pool explorer

From the days of my misspent youth

I believe that down on the beach

Where the sea gulls preach

Is where the Chinese buried the truth.

A

So I dig in the sand

With my misguided hands

E

And if I dig deep enough

Hell I just might dig it up

B

Talkin’ about treasure

A

Talkin’ about pleasure

E

Talkin’ about love

E

Now I'm a reader of the night sky

And a singer of inordinate tunes

That's how I float across time

Livin’ way past my prime

Like a long lost baby's balloon.

A

So I hang on to the string

Work that whole gravity thing

E

But when my space ship goes pop

Back to the earth I will drop

B

Into the sea

A

Or the limbs of a tree

E

Or the wings of my love

Chorus

B A E

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

B A E

Maybe invent me a story or two

A C#m B

I've got coastal confessions to make

E E

How ‘bout you, how ‘bout you?

They say that time is like a river

And stories are the key to the past

But now I'm stuck in between

Here at my typing machine

Trying to come up with some words that will last.

It's so easy to see that we live history

And if I just find the beat

I know I’ll land on my feet

I always do

Hadn't got a clue

’Cause it comes from above.

Chorus

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

Maybe invent me a story or two

I've got coastal confessions to make

How ‘bout you, how ‘bout you?

Let's go to church, Sonny...

(musical bridge)

B C#m A E

So bless me father, yes I have sinned

B C#m A E

Given the chance I'll probably do it again

B C#m

I don't need absolution

A B

Just a simple solution will do

So let's talk about the future

Or the consequences of my past

I've got scars, I've got lines

I'm not hard to define

Just an altar boy covering his ass.

I know I can't run and hide

But just hang on for the ride

There will be laughter and tears

As we progress through the years

But still it's fun

Hey I'm not done

Gonna dance ‘till I fall

Chorus

And I don't know what I'm supposed to do

Maybe have me a boat drink or two

It's just the coastal confessions I hear

Tell the truth, tell the truth

I've got some coastal confessions to make

How ‘bout you
