Jimmy Buffett - Peanut Butter Conspiracy guitar chord

Peanut Butter Conspiracy

By: Jimmy Buffett

1973

C G

Looking back at my hard luck days

F C

I really do have to laugh

C G

Working in a dive for twenty six dollars

F G

Spending it all on grass

F C

We were hungry hard luck heros

F G

Trying just to stay alive

F C

We'd go down to the corner drug

D G

This is how we'd survive

Chorus:

C

Who's going to steal the peanut butter?

F C

I'll get a can of sardines

C

Running up and down the aisle of the mini mart

F G

Sticking food in our jeans

F C

We never took more than we could eat

F G

There was plenty left on the rack

F C

We all swore if we ever got rich

G C

We would pay the mini mart back

F C F C

Yes sir! Yes sir!

G C

We would pay the mini mart back

It was a two man operation

Had it all down on a note

Ricky would watch that big round mirror

And I'd fill up my coat

Then we'd head for the checkout aisle

With a lemon and a bottle of beer

Into to the car, got to make it on home

Supper time's gettin' near

(Repeat chorus)

I guess every good picker has had some hard times

I sure had my share

It's really kind of funny to laugh at it now

But I don't want to go back there

So every now and then when I'm in the grocery

I take a little but not much

You never know when those hard times will hit you

And I don't want to lose my touch

(Repeat chorus)
