Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This was a request from someone to tab. The chords as they should be are dead on. I cant 
that much for the lyrics :), they are about 90% correct, but a lot of the words were 
and stuff. But enjoy, this is a fun song.

If you know what hes actually saying in a part i missed, email me at 
and i will update it.

CAPO 5th fret

Intro- its some random stuff, but ive highlighted the key parts you need.
  C                    C
E---------------------/---------/  continue to hammer-on the C chord.

Was just a tender chicken, in the Florida rotisserie
my owns sweats basting me, thunder storms are chasing me
i bit into a lightning bolt, my own tongue began to smoke
i woke up with an empty mouth, watched the watch tick backwards,
south of the south

the csx vibrates the tracks, money order shakes the shacks,
purple skies and orange moons, plants are confident in june
humidity is thick you can cut it with a knife,
if youd like to take breath here honey, im going to cut you out a slice

so i developed gills and i moved into the aquaphor,
fell asleep in wakala springs, woke up down in jupiter
then i moved back to the land high into an orange tree
it was set for life with citrus but my body couldnt take this
a sitting tree

so i strolled down to miami, tried to find myself some friends
found myself down in south beach, and met some manequins
who smelled of coconuts and copper tone, like the smells knew well
as far as conversations go i guess it stopped at the start
of the smell

it was elvis and sinatra,and now wheres your wallet, man i got ya
now if you pull like me they let poor people like me be
they said north beach is a war zone, high rise hotels hollowed out
now we were living large, we were stepping out
and some thirty dollar beach front motel down south of the south

           F                           C
south of south, down in north miami, south of the south
me and my whole of returning, south of the south
we were practically married

so i jumped my pogo stick all the way to ebo city,
where they burned up a couple blocks, and to me seemed like a pity
there was once a cuban district and a center for the arts,
a model like atmosphere homogenous and insincere, they burned its heart right out
down south of the south

so i began a snake bird, an old swamp turkey,
and soem red neck tried to shoot me, tried to make swamp turkey jerky
but i evaded all his bullets and i flew into the gulf,
and i jumped upon a west wind, to a safer haven
out near alcony's and bay land, down south
south of the south

in the town of pensicola, riding bikes like we were kids,
over cobblestones and brick a tab, offensively a bridge,
was a sand lot shot gun shack, to move all rusted out,
and theres a couch on every front porch, flapping screen doors,
ants on the apple cores, pots boiled peanuts, down south
south of the south

south of the south,south of old bellanca, south of tuscunusa,
south of the south, south of ol' alpharetta, south of the south,
south of south carolina, south of south, down south, of the south, of the south
