The following are what I believe to be the chords for Jimmy Bufett's
"Distantly in Love."

D:        000232
Dsus2: 000230
Dsus4: 000233
A:        002220
Asus2: 002200
G:        320033
E:        221000

Intro: D  Dsus2  D   Dsus4  D  Dsus2  D   A   Asus2  A

D                           G                   A                         D
Payphones all were ringing as the crowd went roaring by,

D                     G                 A          D
Lovely dancers swayin' to an island lullaby

D                            G                  A                          D
Beside the southern ocean, taking thought of what's to be

D                      G                     A                D
Writing you this letter that you'll prob'ly never see

     G  D    A               G     D       A                  G           D
          A               D
But I can't help but be ruled by inconsistancies, now you need this distantly
in love.

D                           G                   A                     D
Tried to phone from Paris, thinking things could be arranged

D                          G                       A
Me and you would roundez-vous, but I found your number changed

D                        G                        A                  D
So I drove to San Ramos where the crazy painter dwells

D                      G                     A                      D
Toasted our old photographs still up there on the shelves

      G D     A               G         D     A           G           D
            A              D
But I can't help but be ruled by my intiguities, now you need this distantly
in love

|D  G    A  D :|

A                  G                  A                         G
I can't be the one to fill your times and all your places

A                  G                    E                       A
I can't be the one to fill your blanks and empty spaces

D                     G                   A                   D
I heard it from a friend of ours I saw in Timber Bay

D                    G                   A              D
You had a new lover who had stolen you away

D                        G                 A              D
That could be the reason that I never got in touch

D                       G                 A                        D
He presents like problems if he loves you half as much

G           D            A               G         D      A           G
         D            A              D
'Cause I who can't help but be ruled by my intiguities now you need this
distantly in love

Dsus4  D  Dsus2

               G  D    A              G             D     A                 G
           D            A
You know I can't help but be part of my own philosophies, now you need this
distantly in


I've been playing this song for years, but I never actually wrote it down to
send it in until now.  The best memory I have of this song is when Jimmy did
it acoustic both nights at Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA on the '94 Fruitcakes
tour.  Anyhoo, Enjoy!
