Jimmy Buffett - Son Of A Sailor guitar chord

Son of a Sailor

Jimmy Buffett

****************

G

As the son of a son of a sailor

F C G

I went out on the sea for adventure

C G

Expanding the view of the captain and crew

D G

Like a man just released from indenture

G

As a dreamer of dreams and a traveling man

F C G

I have chalked up many a mile

C G

Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks

D G

And I learned much from both of their styles

Chorus:

F C

Son of a son, son of a son

G

Son of a son of a sailor

F C

Son of a gun, load the last ton

C

One step ahead of the jailer

Now away in the near future

Southeast of disorder

You can shake the hand of the Mango man

As he greets you at the boarder

And the lady she hails from Trinidad

Island of the spices

Salt for your meat and cinnamon sweet

And the rum is for all your good vices

F C

Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind

G

That our forefathers harnessed before us

F C

Hear the bells ring as the tide rigging sings

G

It's a son of a gun of a chorus

Where it all ends I can't fathom my friends

If I knew I might toss out my anchor

So I'll cruise along always searching for songs

Not a lawyer a thief or a banker

But the son of a son, son of a son

Son of a son of a sailor

Son of a gun, load the last ton

One step ahead of the jailer

I'm just a son of a son, son of a son

Son of a son of a sailor

F C

The sea's in my veins, my tradition remains

G

I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer
