Buffett Jimmy – Life Is Just A Tire Swing tab
Intro: Bm G A D I remember the smell of the creosote plant, E F#m Gdim E7 A Bm Cdim A when we'd have to eat on Easter with my crazy old uncle and aunt. G A D They lived in a big house Antebellum style, G D G D and the wind would blow across the old bayou, A D and I was a tranquil little child. Chorus: D Bm Life was just a tire swing. G D 'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing. G D Black-berry pickin', eatin' fried chicken, G D A and I never knew a thing about pain; Bm Life was just a tire swing. 2. In a few summers my folks packed me off to camp; yeah, me and my cousin' Baxter in our pup tent with a lamp. And in a few days Baxter went home, and he left me by myself. And I knew that I'd stay, it was better that way, and I could get along without any help. (2nd chorus) Life was just a tire swing. 'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing. Chasin' after sparrows with rubber-tipped arrows, knowin' I could never hurt a thing, and life was just a tire swing. (then continue) Bm G F#m Em D And I've never been west of New Orleans nor east of Pensacola. G F#m E7 A My only contact with the outside world was an R.C.A. Victrola. Bm A And Elvis would sing and then I'd dream about expensive cars, E7 and who would've figured twenty years later A E7 F#m7 I'd be rubbin' shoulders with the stars. Bm Life was just a tire swing. 3. Then the other morning on some Illinois road I fell asleep at the wheel, But was quickly wakened up by a 'Ma Bell' telephone pole, and a bunch of Grant Wood faces screaming 'Is he still alive?', But through the window I could see it hangin' from a tree, and I knew that I had survived. (3rd chorus) Life was just a tire swing. 'Jambalaya's still the best song that I sing. Black-berry pickin', eatin' fried chicken, and I finally learned a lot about pain, 'cause life is just a tire swing. Life was just a tire swing.
