Jimmy Buffett - Migration guitar chord

MIGRATION

Jimmy Buffett

From the 2-disc set "MEET ME IN MAGARITAVILLE"

2003 MCA Records

(C) Lookin' back at my background

Tryin' to figure (G7) out how I ever got here

Some things are still a mystery to me

While (C) others are much too (C7) clear

I'm just (F) livin' in the sunshine

Stay (C) contented most of the (Am) time

Yeah, (D7) listenin' to Murphy, Walker, and Willis

Sing me their Texas (G) rhymes (G7)

Now (C) most of the people who retire in Florida

Are (G) wrinkled and they lean on a crutch

And mobile homes are smotherin' my keys

I (C) hate those bastards so much

I wish a (F) summer squall would blow them

All the (C) way up to fantasy (Am) land

Yeah, they're (D7) ugly and square, they don't belong here

They looked a (G) lot better as beer (C) cans

Yeah and (Am) that's why it's still a mystery to me

Why (G) some people live like they do

So (Am) many nice things happenin' out there

They (D7) never even seen the (G) clues

Oh, but we're (F) doin' fine, we can travel and rhyme

I (C) know we been doin' our (Am) part

Got a (F) Caribbean soul I can (C) barely control

And some (G) Texas hidden here in my (Am) heart (C)

Well, now I might have joined the Merchant Marine

If I hadn't learned how to sing

And on top of all that I got married too early

'Cost me much more than a ring

But now those crazy days are over

Just gotta learn from the wrong things you've done

I came off the rebound, started lookin' around

Figured out it's time to have a little fun

Yeah and (Am) that's why it's still a mystery to me

Why (G) some people live like they do

So (Am) many nice things happenin' out there

They (D7) never even seen the (G) clues

Oh, but we're (F) doin' fine, we can travel and rhyme

I (C) know we been doin' our (Am) part

Got a (F) Caribbean soul I can (C) barely control

And some (G) Texas hidden here in my (Am) heart (C)

Well, now if I ever live to be an old man

I'm gonna sail down to Martinique

I'm gonna buy me a sweat-stained Bogart suit

And an African parakeet

And then I'll sit him on my shoulder

And open up my trusty old mind

I gonna teach him how to cuss, teach him how to fuss

And pull the cork out of a bottle of wine

Yeah and (Am) that's why it's still a mystery to me

Why (G) some people live like they do

So (Am) many nice things happenin' out there

They (D7) never even seen the (G) clues

Oh, but we're (F) doin' fine, we can travel and rhyme

I (C) know we been doin' our (Am) part

Got a (F) Caribbean soul I can (C) barely control

And some (G) Texas hidden here in my (Am) heart (C)
