@ALBUM: Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
@SONG: Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
By: Jimmy Buffett

Intro:  G   D   A   G D
D                 G
I took off for a weekend last month
        A                        D
Just to try and recall the whole year
                     G
All of the faces and all of the places
 A                           D
Wonderin' where they all disappeared
Bm                  F#m
I didn't ponder the question too long
      G                         A
I was hungry and went out for a bite
    G                  D
Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum
       A                    D
and we wound up drinkin' all night

Chorus:
                G                     D
     It's these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
      A                        D
     Nothing remains quite the same
         G                      D
     With all of our running and all of our cunning
        A                         G         D
     if we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

Reading departure signs in some big airport
Reminds me of the places I've been
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
Makes me want to go back again
If it suddenly ended tomorrow
I could somehow adjust to the fall
Good times and riches and son of a bitches
I've seen more than I can recall

Chorus:
     These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
     Nothing remains quite the same
     Through all of the islands and all of the highlands
     If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

(Repeat Intro chords)

I think about Paris when I'm high on red wine
I wish I could jump on a plane
So many nights I just dream of the ocean
God I wish I was sailin' again
Oh, yesterday's over my shoulder
So I can't look back for too long
There's just too much to see waiting in front of me
And I know that I just can't go wrong

Chorus:
     With these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
     Nothing remains quite the same
     With all of my running and all of my cunning
     If I couldn't laugh I just would go insane
     If we couldn't laugh we just would go insane
        A                       F     C    G    D   A   D
     If we weren't all crazy we would go insane

@SONG: Wonder Why We Ever Go Home
Wonder Why We Ever Go Home
By: Jimmy Buffett
1977

Intro:  G  C/G  G
G              C/D           G   C/D
Years grow shorter, not longer
    G           C            G    C/D
The more you've been on your own
G            C/D              G    C/D
Feelin's for movin' grow stronger
       F              C       G
So you wonder why you ever go home
F              C       G     C/G   G
Wonder why you ever go home

People are movin' so quickly
Humor's in need of repair
Same occupations and same obligations
They've really go nothing to share
Like drivin' around with no spare

River gets deeper not shallow
The further you move down the stream
Wonderin' if I can keep her
As I race to catch up with my dreams
How they shine and glitter and gleam

Years grow shorter, not longer
The more you've been on your own
Feelin's for movin' grow stronger
So you wonder why you ever go home
Wonder why you ever go home
You wonder why you ever go home

@SONG: Banana Republics
@CHORDS: (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu) and Kevin J. Shuholm
Banana Republics
By: Steve Goodman\Jim Rothermel\Steve Burgh

 G                            Am
Down to the Banana Republics, down to the tropical sun
      D7                      G
Go the expatriated Americans, hopin' to find some fun
 G                               Am
Some of them go for the sailing, caught by the lure of the sea
D7                             G
Tryin' to find what is ailing, livin' in the land of the free
 G                                    Am
Some of them are running from lovers, leaving no forward address
D7
Some of them are running tons of ganja
        G
some are running from the I.R.S

Chorus:
     Dm
     Late at night you will find them
           Am
     In the cheap hotels and bars
      C                G     C         G        D         G
     Hustling the senioritas while they dance beneath the stars
         Dm                             Eb                  D
     Spending those renegade pesos on a bottle of rum and a lime
       C                              G
     Singin' give me some words I can dance to
     C     G     D7      G
     Or a mel - ody that rhymes


First you learn the native customs
Soon a word of spanish or two
You know that you cannot trust them
'cause they know they can't trust you
Expatriated Americans, feelin' so all alone
Telling themselves the same lies
That they told themselves back home

(solo) -play - G  Am D  G  - Dm   Am C  G C G

Down to the Banana Republics
Things aren't as warm as they seem
None of the natives are buying any
Second-hand American dreams

(repeat chorus)

Down to the Banana Republics
Down to the tropical sun
Go the expatriated Americans
Hopin' to find some fun

(repeat chords and fade)

@SONG: Tampico Trauma
@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
Tampico Trauma
By: Jimmy Buffett
1977

   **  At the places notated "5th, 4th, 3rd" stand for an "A" chord
   **  fingering on that particular fret.  Specifically, 5th - |xx555x|
   **  4th - |xx444x|  3rd - |xx333x|  A - |xx222x|

Intro: (run of)  5th  4th  3rd  A  (repeat)

  5th         4th    3rd    A
I must look a mess I must admit
   5th          4th        3rd     A
But I have been travelling quite a bit

   D
     South of the Border
   A
     Where the law and order
        D                          E
     Is kept by Federales who just grin
         5th                4th     3rd     A
     And tell you they just want to be your friend

(repeat run)
I left for Tampico last July
I jumped off that boat I almost died

   D
     There to greet us
   A
     Were pretty senoritas
       D                               E
     I swore that I would not go home then

(repeat run)
All those lovely ladies were my friends
All those sweet chiquitas they don't pretend

(solo)

(repeat run)
That is all I really want to say
I was thrown out of the country yesterday

                D
     (See I was)  drinkin' double
   A
     Causin' lots of trouble
              D                                          E
     When the man looked in the window of the bar and he grinned
                   5th                  4th      3rd      A
     And said, "If you come back we just may not be your friend"

(repeat run)
"I don't want to see you 'round here again"
"If you come back next time we may not..."  (Hidy ho' boys!)

@SONG: Margaritaville
@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
Margaritaville
By: Jimmy Buffett
1977

D
Nibblin' on sponge cake

Watchin' the sun bake
                                   A
All of those tourists covered with oil

Strummin' my six-string

On my front porch swing
                                         D     D7
Smell those shrimp, they're beginnin' to boil

Chorus:
   G         A                  D          D7
     Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
   G                 A               D    D7
     Searching for my lost shaker of salt
   G             A                    D  A      G
     Some people claim that there's a wo-man to blame
           A     G                D
     But I know    it's nobody's fault

I don't know the reason
I stayed here all season
Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty
A Mexican cutie
How it got here I haven't a clue

Chorus:
     Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
     Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
     Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
     Now I think
     Hell, it could be my fault

Solo: (based on verse chords and chorus)

I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

Chorus:
     Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
     Searching for my lost shaker of salt
     Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
     But I know
     It's my own damned fault

Coda:
        G             A                    D  A      G
Yes and,  some people claim that there's a wo-man to blame
      A     G                    D
And I know    it's my own damned fault

@SONG: In The Shelter
@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
In the Shelter
By: Jimmy Buffett
1971

Intro:  A  E    A  E
E
    In the shelter
                                              A
    In the mornin' as the sun is brightly gleaming
F#m
    I heard her crying out,  "What is it all about?
      E                    A               E
    I just don't know, but I can't go back home"

E
    Lonely princess
                                                A
    All the days out on your own are growing empty
F#m
    Nothing is going well
                                E
    If you could only tell them how you feel
         A                  E
    But they're too real to understand

Chorus:
   A
     Too many trite expressions
                                 E
     Ending in forced rejections long ago
   A
     To many innocent faces
                                E
     In too many far out places somethings wrong
                          B
     Let me tell you that somethings wrong
                    A                       E
     It's been that way so long, and it's a shame

On the street car
To the city where she knows she may lose it all
Riding for just a dime, takin' her own sweet time
And knowing well that this could be her final fall

Past the boutique
To the alley down the river, people pass her by
She sits on a big gray rock, takes off her boots and socks
Not knowin' what she will do next just starts to cry

Chorus:
   A
     Too many wild rejections
                               E
     Endin' in angry questions from her dad
   A
     Too many T.V. dinners
                                      E
     Ah, everyone loves a winner, but she was lost
     A                 E
     No one knows the trials she had

(Repeat first verse, then)
E                             A               E      A  E    A  E
Hell, I just don't know,  but I can't go back home               (fade)

Miss You So Badly
By: Jimmy Buffett/Greg Taylor
1977

C          F
I guess it all blew up in Missoula
           C      G7    C
There just was no other way
      F                                C       G7     C
After months of goin' crazy, there was nothin' left to say
            Am
But when the dust had finally settled
       D7
And the air had quickly cleared
F                        G7               C     C7
Whoa, things were better off than I had feared

Chorus:
              F                    C
     (And I,)   Miss you so badly,   girl I love you madly
   G                                 C            C7
     Feelin' so sad now since I been gone, gone, gone
   F                         C
     It gets quite confusin',  it seems that I'm loosin'
   G                                     C
     Track of the long days since I been home

We're stayin' in a Holiday Inn full of surgeons
I guess they meet there once a year
They exchange physician's stories
And get drunk on Tuborg beer
And then they're off to catch a stripper
With their eyes glued to her "G"
But I don't think that I would ever let 'em cut on me

Chorus:
     (And I,) Miss you so badly, girl I love you madly
     I think I've been had though for stayin' so long, long, long
     And I'm, just watchin' the Gong Show, waitin' for Zorro
     Losin' the long days since I been home

(Solo)

I got a head full of feelin' higher
And an ear full of Patsy Cline
There is just no one who can touch her
Hell, I'll hang on every line
Oh, crazy how things happen, it's incredible but true
The longer I'm gone the closer I feel to you

Chorus:
     (And I,)  Miss you so badly,  girl I love you madly
     I'm feelin' so glad just to be headin' home, home, home
     I've been, battlin' motel maids, and chewin' on Rolaids
     Countin' the hours till I get home
     Whoa I been, countin' the hours till I get home

@SONG: Biloxi

Biloxi
By: J. Winchester

 A
Down around Biloxi
                                 D
Pretty girls are swimmin' in the sea
                                  A
They all look like sisters in the ocean
 D                                A
Boy will fill his pale with salty water
        G                     D               A
And the storms will blow from off towards New Orleans

 A
The Sun shines on Biloxi
                                       D
The air is filled with vapors from the sea
                                   A
The boy will dig a pool beside the ocean
        D                         A
He sees creatures from his dreams underwater
        G                 D               A
And the Sun will set from off towards New Orleans

(solo)  G   D   A
        G   D   A

Stars can see Biloxi
Stars can find their faces in the sea
We are walking down beside the ocean
We are splashing naked in the water
And the sky is red from off towards New Orleans

@SONG: Landfall
@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
Landfall
By: Jimmy Buffett
1977

Intro:  G  A  C  G    G  A  C  G
        G  A  C  G    G  A  C  G
    G               A       C            G
Now what would they do if I just sailed away
G            A                   C          G
Who the hell really compelled me to leave today
G             A               C          G
Runnin' low on stories of what made it a ball
G               A       C           G
What would they do if I made no landfall

I lived half my life in an eight by five room
Just crusin' to the sound of the big diesel boom
It's not close quarters that would make me snap
It's just dealing with the daily unadulterated crap

Chorus: (see below for notes on "Run")
     "Run"     E       A          G
     Sail away,  for a month at a time
     "Run"     E             A          G
     Sail away,  I've got to restart my mind
                A                  Gb  G
     And you'll find me back at it a - gain

Now I love the smell of fresh snapper fried light
What you say pouilly-fusse to round out the night
The mid-morning watch is the best time to look
Oh, what would they do if I wrote the big book

'Cause I've seen incredible things in my years
Some days were laughter and others were tears
If I had it all to do over again
I'd just get myself drunk and I'd jump right back in

Chorus:
     Sail away, that's the way I survive
     Sail away, that's just no shuck and jive
     But it makes my whole life come alive

Solo: (based on verse and chorus chords)

The wind whistles through the cold riggin' at night
Crazy crowds boogie to the sound and the lights
Bums down in Capo's, he's just havin' a ball
Oh, what would he do on another landfall
What would they do if I made no landfall
Oh, what would they do if I flew to Nepal
What would I do if I met Lucile Ball
I'm tryin' to make a little sense of it all
Just tryin' to make a little sense of it all

(Repeat Intro chords twice and fade)

------------------------------------------------------------------
"Run" notes:  this notates to play a "run" of the notes (G, Gb, E)
 as a lead-in to the E chord of the chorus.  Here's a Tab example:
  e -------------------|
  b -------------------|
  g --------------1----|
  d --------------2----|
  a --------------2----|
  E --3--2--0----------|
      G  Gb E     E (chord)

** also, on the "Gb" note (last line of chorus), I play just the
   note on the E (bass) string to lead-in to the G chord.  As
   always, listen to the song to get it just right. MAH

A load of work went into this bit. Wow!
Why not break the songs up so that others could find them?
Cheers!
