The Wino and I Know
Jimmy Buffett

Intro: G G C G G C G

GThe ice cream man, he's a hillbilly fan
GGot seventy-eights by Hank Snow
CWalks down the street, shufflin' his feet
GTo a rhythm that only he knows
Bm CAnd I've seen him in so many places
Bm F DI saw him the night I was born
D GIn a Bourbon Street bar, I received my first scar
D C GFrom an old man so tattered and torn
Chorus:
CAnd the wino and I know the pain of street singin'
GLike a door-to-door salesman knows the pains of bell ringin'
D CStrange situation, wild occupation
C GLivin' my life like a song
GThe coffee is strong at the Cafe Du Monde
GThe donuts are too hot to touch
CJust like a fool, when those sweet goodies cool
GI eat till I eat way too much
Bm C'Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me
Bm F DBe they pastry, lobster or love
D G I'm just tryin' to get by being quiet and shy
D C GIn a world full of pushin' and shovin’
Chorus:
CAnd the wino and I know the pain of back bustin'
GLike the farmer knows the pain of his pickup truck rustin'
D CStrange situation, wild occupation
C GLivin' my life like a song
D C GSweet senorita won't you please come with me
D C GBack to the island honey, back to the sea
D C DBack to the only place that I want to be
Chorus:
CAnd the wino and I know the joy of the ocean
GLike a boy knows the joy of his milkshake in motion
D CStrange situation, wild occupation
C GLivin' my life like a song
D CYes it’s a strange situation, wild occupation
C GLivin' my life like a song
