@ALBUM: Havana Daydreamin'
@SONG: Woman Goin' Crazy On Caroline Street
Woman Goin' Crazy On Caroline Street
By: Jimmy Buffett, Steve Goodman
1975

Chorus:
               G
     There's a woman goin' crazy on Caroline Street
     D
     Stoppin' every man that she does meet
            C
     Sayin' if you'll be gentle if you'll be sweet
                                   Am   G
     I'll show you my place on Caroline Street

    G                 D             C
She claimed in a loud voice to be a dancer
    G                   D            C
But I don't think she's cut a rug in years
G              D               C
Listens to the jukebox for her answers
 G             D                C
Slowly guzzles twenty-five cent beers

Talks about the men she's known and then some
She's seen them in her dreams and on the street
She slides her dapper legs from beneath the table
As if to reveal some kind of treat

(Repeat chorus)

Her lover left her stranded in Jamaica
Just right now she can't recall his name
Perceiving she's the center of attention
And all the lurking eyes they look the same

Weather's got the shrimpers in a frenzy
They're horny and don't need a good excuse
Someone yells and things just start erupting
And in a flash all hell has broken loose

(Repeat chorus)
(guitar solo)

When I woke up and looked around the barroom
She was gone and I was black and blue
So be careful when you go to swing your partner
Someone just might take a swing at you

(Repeat chorus twice and fade)

Chorus:
        G                  A7            C          G
     My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus
                       A7
     It's that kind of mornin'
            C                 D
     Really was that kind of night
     C                                G      B7   Em
     Tryin' to tell myself that my condition is improvin'

                 D
Went down to the snake pit
                  G
To drink a little beer
              D
Listen to the jukebox
                    G
Merle was comin' in clear
Em
All of a sudden I wasn't alone
A7
Pickin' country music with ol' Joe Bones
D
Duval Street was rockin'

My eyes they starting poppin'
        Em
Because there she sat at the corner of the bar
     A7
As I broke another string on my ol' guitar
D
Someone call a cab
D7
Lady won'tcha pay my tab

Chorus:
     And now my head hurts, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus
     It's that kinda mornin'
     Really was that kinda night
     Tryin' to tell myself that my condition is improvin'
     And if I don't die by Thursday I'll be roarin' Friday night

Gotta get a little orange juice
And a Darvon for my head
I can't spend all day
Baby layin' in the bed
I'm goin' down to Fausto's get some chocolate milk
Can't spend my life in yer sheets of silk
I've got to find my way
Crawl out and greet the day

Chorus:
     But now my head hurts, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus
     It's that kinda mornin'
     Really was that kinda night
     Tryin' to tell myself that my condition is improvin'
     And if I don't die by Thursday I'll be roarin' Friday night
                     C       D      G
Let me tell ya, I be roarin' Friday night
               C       D      G
I mean I'll be roarin' Friday night

@SONG: The Captain and The Kid
@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
The Captain and The Kid
By: Jimmy Buffett
1970

D                  G
   I never used to miss the chance
D                    G
   To climb upon his knee
D                    G
   And listen to the many tales
E7                  A
   Of life upon the sea
F#m                        G
   We'd go sailing back on barkentines
F#m                      G
   And talk of things he did
F#m                  G
   Tomorrow's just a day away
           E7     A         D
   For the captain  and the kid

His world had gone from sailing ships
To raking mom's back yard
He never could adjust to land
Although he tried so hard
We both were growing older then
And wiser with our years
That's when I came to understand
The course his heart still steers

He died about a month ago
While winter filled the air
And though I cried I was so proud
To love a man so rare
He's somewhere on the ocean now
The place he ought to be
With one hand on the starboard rail
He's waving back at me

(Repeat first verse)
        E7       A           D
For the captain     and this kid
