Standard Tuning – Chord  D*= 020032   Tabbed by: Mike Wilson

G                  C                          D 
The sun is hot, and that old clock is moving slow. 
And so am I
G                   C                       D
The work day passes slower than molasses in wintertime
But it’s July
C                                D
I’m getting paid by the hour and older by the minute
C                       D
The boss just pushed me over the limit
C                    D
I’d like to call him something
C                 D          G
I think I’ll just call it a day

G                                  C                   D
Pour me something tall and strong. Make it a hurricane before I go insane
G                            C           D                
It’s only half past twelve   But I don’t care
D                 G          
It’s five o’clock somewhere
G                   C                 D
This lunch break is going to take all afternoon
And half the night
G                C                  D
Tomorrow morning I know there’ll be hell to pay 
Hey but that’s all right
C                           D
I haven’t had a day off now in over a year
C                    D          
My Jamaican vacation starts right here
If the phones for me 
D                               G
You can tell them I just sailed away

Chorus Repeat
C                      D                        C                      G
I could pay up my tab. Pour myself in a cab and be back to work before two.
C                      D
At a moment like this, I can’t help but wonder
C                        G
What would Jimmy Buffet do.   (I think he'd say....)

Chorus Repeat (and some general beach banter)

Lack of accuracy. It was very off tune. Hard to sing along with, even if using a capo to make it work with your voice.

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. Clearly the wrong chords, missing tons of crucial minor chords... the tab is incomplete... Really, really wrong. Not sure what else to say here. Take it down.
