??????????: 24


Lookin' back at my background


Tryin' to figure out how I ever got here

Some things are still a mystery to me

C C7

While others are much too clear


I'm just livin' in the sunshine

C Am

Stay contented most of the time


Yeah, listenin' to Murphy, Walker, and Willis

G G7

Sing me their Texas rhymes

Now most of the people who retire in Florida

Are wrinkled and they lean on a crutch

And mobile homes are smotherin' my keys

I hate those bastards so much

I wish a summer squall would blow them

All the way up to fantasy land

Am D7

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

F G7 C

They looked a lot better as beer cans



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


Why some people live like they do


So many nice things happenin' out there

D7 G

They never even seen the clues


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

C Am

I know we been doin' our part


Got a Caribbean soul I can barely control

G7 Am C

And some Texas hidden here in my heart

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

(repeat chorus)

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

(repeat chorus, then)


Yeah, got a Caribbean soul I can barely control

G7 F G C C7

And some Texas hidden here in my heart
