Love in the Library (from the Jimmy Buffett album _Fruitcakes_)
By: Jimmy Buffett, Mac McAnally
1994

        Bm                       A
On the corner of Government and Bay Avenue
         Bm                      A
The old doomsday fanatic wore a crown of kudzu
 D           A              E            A
Sirens were wailing in the Gulf Coastal heat
        G               D               E
And it seemed like the whole world was in forced retreat


Paid no attention, revolved through the door
Past the newspaper racks on the worn marble floor
Near Civil War history my heart skipped a beat
She was standing in fiction stretched high on bare feet

 D           A
Love in the library
 E         A
Quiet and cool
 D           A
Love in the library
 E            A
There are no rules
    E          A
Surrounded by stories
    E           A
Surreal and sublime
           D           A
I fell in love in the library
 E           A
Once upon a time

I was the pirate, she was the queen
Sir Francis and Elizabeth, the best there's ever been
Then she strolled past my table and stopped at the stairs
Then sent me a smile as she reached for Flaubert

Love in the library
Quiet and cool
Love in the library
There are no rules
Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time

Solo:  Bm  A  Bm  A

She gathered her books, walked while she read
Words never spoken, but so much was said
You can read all you want into this rendezvous
But it's safer than most things that lovers can do

Well stories have endings, fantasies fade
And the guard by the door starts drawing the shade
So write your own ending and hope it comes true
For the lovers and strangers on Bay Avenue
Love in the library
Quiet and cool
Love in the library
There are no rules
Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time

Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time

Every "E" but the last one in each stanza should be a "D"--four stars.
