Nothing But A Breeze – Jesse Winchester (Jimmy Buffet also sang this song)
Capo 3 to sing along with Jesse

Intro: E-A-B7-E

E
Life is much too short for some folks 
    A                         E
For other folks it just drags on 

Some folks like the taste of smokey whiskey 
A                        B7 
Others figure tea is too strong 

E
I'm the type of guy who likes to ride it down the middle 
A                                       E
I don't like all this bouncing back and forth 
A                          E
Me, I want to live with my feet in Dixie 
       B7                    E
And my head in the cool blue North 

E
In a small suburban garden 
A                               E
Not a single neighbor knows our names 

I know the woman wishes we would move somewhere 
          A                     B7
Where the houses aren't all the same 

       E
Jessy, I wish you would take me 

Where the grass is greener 
  A                                E
I really couldn't say where it may be 
A                      E
Somewhere up high on a mountain top 
   B7                    E
Or down by the deep blue sea 

    A                         E 
And there we'll do just as we please 
Fm                     B7 
It ain't nothing but a breeze 

E
One day I'll be a old gray grandpa 
A                                 E
All the pretty girls will call me Sir 

Now, they're asking me how things are 
 A                              B7
Soon they'll ask me how things were 

      E
Well, I don't mind being an old gray grandpa 
A                         E
If you'll be my gray grandma 
A                               E
But I'll suggest we go have our milk and cookies 
       B7                   E
In the shade of the old paw-paw 

Instrumental - Verse Chords

A                         E
There we'll do just as we please 
Fm                     B7
It ain't nothing but a breeze 

E
Life is just too short for some folks 
A                         E

Some folks like the taste of smokey whiskey 
A                        B7

    E
Now I'm the type of guy who likes to ride it down the middle 
A                                       E  
I don't like all this bouncing back and forth 
A                          E
Me, I want to live with my feet in Dixie 
       B7                    E
And my head in the cool blue North 

     A                         E
Yea, me I want to live with my feet in Dixie 
       B7                    E 
And my head in the cool blue North
