Jimmy Buffett – Migration chords

By: Jimmy Buffett

CLookin' back at my background
G7Tryin' to figure out how I ever got here
Some things are still a mystery to me
C C7While others are much too clear
FI'm just livin' in the sunshine
C AmStay contented most of the time
D7Yeah, listenin' to Murphy, Walker, and Willis
G G7Sing me their Texas rhymes
Now most of the people who retire in Florida Are wrinkled and they lean on a crutch And mobile homes are smotherin' my keys I hate those bastards so much I wish a summer squall would blow them All the way up to fantasy land
Am D7 Yeah, they're ugly and square, they don't belong here
F G7 C They looked a lot better as beer cans
Am Yeah and that's why it's still a mystery to me
G Why some people live like they do
Am So many nice things happenin' out there
D7 G They never even seen the clues
F Oh, but we're doin' fine, we can travel and rhyme
C Am I know we been doin' our part
F C Got a Caribbean soul I can barely control
G7 Am C And some Texas hidden here in my heart
Well, now I might have joined the Merchant Marine If I hadn't learned how to sing And on top of all that I got married too early 'Cost me much more than a ring But now those crazy days are over Just gotta learn from the wrong things you've done I came off the rebound, started lookin' around Figured out it's time to have a little fun (repeat chorus) Well, now if I ever live to be an old man I'm gonna sail down to Martinique I'm gonna buy me a sweat-stained Bogart suit And an African parakeet And then I'll sit him on my shoulder And open up my trusty old mind I gonna teach him how to cuss, teach him how to fuss And pull the cork out of a bottle of wine (repeat chorus, then)
F CYeah, got a Caribbean soul I can barely control
G7 F G C C7And some Texas hidden here in my heart
