Buffett Jimmy - Delaney Talks To Statues tab

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Song Title: Delaney Talks to statues
Album Title: Fruitcakes

Verse 1
A       E        B   E
Delaney talks to statues 
       A       B         E
As she dances 'round the pool 
A          E            B      E
She chases cats through roman ruins 
    A        B           E
And stomps on big toadstools 
A            E        B       E
She speaks a language all her own 
     A    E      B  E
That I cannot discover 
A       E       B        E
But she knows I love her so 
       A         E         B   E
When I tuck her 'neath the covers 

CHORUS
A   E    B    E
Father, daughter 
A    E      B  E
Down by the water 
A      E     B      E
Shells sink, dreams float 
A      E       B   E
Life's good on our boat 

Verse 2 (same as 1)
Delaney draws me pictures 
She finger paints the sand 
We chase the dogs and hop like frogs 
Then I do my bad handstand 
She's growing up too fast for me 
And asking lots of questions 
Some I know the answers to 
And some I'm looking for suggestions 

CHORUS 2 (same as 1)
Father, daughter 
Born by the water 
Surf's up, sun's down 
Life in a beach town 

BRIDGE
C#m             G#m  
And some of the things I've seen 
      Bm                 A
Maybe she won't have to see 
C#m                         G#m
But there's a lot I want to pass along 
         D              A
That was handed down to me 

Verse 3 (same)
Delaney talks to statues 
As she dances 'round the pool 
She chases cats through Roman ruins 
And stomps on big toadstools 
She speaks a language all her own 
Just a little like her mother 
And she knows I love her so 
When I tuck her 'neath the covers 

Chorus 3 (same)
Father, daughter 
Down by the water 
Shells sink, dreams float 
Life's good on our boat
