"If the Phone Doesn't Ring, It's Me" by Jimmy Buffett
>From "The Last Mango in Paris" album
Submitted by Richard Burchett
======================================

I wrote the intro-melody part out in tab format.  This part needs to be
played by finger-picking.  The chords above the tab usually give an easy
reference to the proper positioning of the left hand while the individual
notes are played.

Intro-melody:
           (C)                           (Em)           (F)           (repeat
2x)

C Em F C That's why we seldom have seen us, Am G C in the light of a cold hard day. Am C Lot's of new friends, with the same old answers, Am G G7 open your eyes you might see, C Em F C if our lives were that simple we'd live in the past, Am G C if the phone doesn't ring, its me. Chorus: G C If the phone doesn't ring, you know that it's me, G C I'll be out in the eye of the storm, G C if the phone doesn't ring, you know that I'll be, G C where someone can make me feel warm. C Em F C It's too bad we can't turn and live in the past, Am G C-(first chord of intro) if the phone doesn't ring, it's me. Intro-melody: No repeats this time. Verse 2: C Em F C I've had good days and bad days and going - half - mad days, Am C I try to let go, but your still on my mind. C Em F C I've lost all the old ways, I'm searching for new ways, Am G C Putting it all on the line. Am C Lots of new friends, with the same old problems, Am G G7 open your eyes you might see, C Em F C if our lives were that simple we'd live in the past, Am G C if the phone doesn't ring, it's me. Repeat chorus. Intro-melody: Play the tab part, singing these words over it. All repeats this time. C Em F It's me, it's me, C Em F it's me, it's me, C Em F it's me, it's me, C Em F it's me, it's me. Coda: (Slowly) C Em F C If it takes all our future we'll live through the past, Am G C C/F C if the phone doesn't ring, it's me. That's All. Once again, this song sounds much better if you finger-pick it. Also, it's a nice touch to add a high "g" note to the Em chords. -Richard Burchett "We're wanted men, we'll strike again, but first let's have a beer!" -J. Buffett
