The Wino and I Know
Jimmy Buffett

Intro: G G C G G C G

G
The ice cream man, he's a hillbilly fan
G
Got seventy-eights by Hank Snow
C
Walks down the street, shufflin' his feet
G
To a rhythm that only he knows
         Bm                  C
And I've seen him in so many places
  Bm                      F   D
I saw him the night I was born
D    G
In a Bourbon Street bar, I received my first scar
        D          C            G
From an old man so tattered and torn

Chorus:
        C
And the wino and I know the pain of street singin'
G
Like a door-to-door salesman knows the pains of bell ringin'
D                  C
Strange situation, wild occupation
C                     G
Livin' my life like a song

G
The coffee is strong at the Cafe Du Monde
G
The donuts are too hot to touch
C
Just like a fool, when those sweet goodies cool
G
I eat till I eat way too much
           Bm                      C
'Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me
        Bm                   F   D
Be they pastry, lobster or love
D        G                   
I'm just tryin' to get by being quiet and shy
     D             C           G
In a world full of pushin' and shovin’

Chorus:
        C
And the wino and I know the pain of back bustin'
G
Like the farmer knows the pain of his pickup truck rustin'
D                  C
Strange situation, wild occupation
C                     G
Livin' my life like a song

D                        C                G
Sweet senorita won't you please come with me
D                         C           G
Back to the island honey, back to the sea
D                           C         D
Back to the only place that I want to be

Chorus:
C
And the wino and I know the joy of the ocean 
G
Like a boy knows the joy of his milkshake in motion 
D                  C
Strange situation, wild occupation
C                     G
Livin' my life like a song
           D                  C
Yes it’s a strange situation, wild occupation
C                     G
Livin' my life like a song
