       G (barre)*
pour myself in a cab
       A                   D
and be back to work before 2
At a momment like this,
  G (barre)*
I can't help but wonder,
Em                      A
what would Jimmy Buffet do?


Repeat D, G, A D talk to yourself if you want, until the end of song etc. . . 

* I think it sounds better with barre chords, but regular G works too.
