Alan Jackson/Jimmy Buffet - It's 5 o'clock somewhere

Standard Tuning
Tabbed by: Alan Dykes 

[Intro]

D, G, A, D


[Verse]

D                  A                 Bm             A       D
The sun is hot and that old clock is movin slow and so am I
D              A                Bm             A        D
Workday passes like molassas in wintertime but it's July
G                                D
I'm getting paid by the hour and over by the minute
A                      D
my boss just pushed me over the limit
G                  
I'd like to call him something
D                           A
I think I'll just call it a day


[Chorus]

D                 G
Pour me something tall and strong
          A                D
make it a hurricane before I go insane
D                   G              A
It's only half past 12 but I don't care
                  D         G     A     D
It's five o'clock somewhere


[Verse]

D                   A              Bm            A             D
This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon and half the night
D                A                  Bm                   A             D
Tomorrow mornin' I know there'll be hell to pay but baby that's alright
G                          D
Ain't had a day off now in over a year,
A                           D
my Jamacan vacation's gonna start right here
       G                       D                     A
if the phone's for me, you can tell em I just sailed away


[Chorus]

D                 G
Pour me something tall and strong
          A                D
make it a hurricane before I go insane
D                   G              A
It's only half past 12 but I don't care
                  D         G     A     D
It's five o'clock somewhere


[Bridge]

D, G, A, D

Bm
I can pay off my tab
       G (barre)*
pour myself in a cab
       A                   D
and be back to work before 2
Bm
At a momment like this,
  G (barre)*
I can't help but wonder,
Em                      A
what would Jimmy Buffet do?


[Chorus]

D                 G
Pour me something tall and strong
          A                D
make it a hurricane before I go insane
D                   G              A
It's only half past 12 but I don't care
                  D         G     A     D
It's five o'clock somewhere

(Repeat D, G, A D)
talk to yourself if you want, until the end of song etc. . . 


* I think it sounds better with barre chords, but regular G works too.

in the first line of the song the BM should be a D, but the BM in the second line is right

also the line in the bridge should go like this
EM A D
and be back to work before 2
and the lyrics in the first part are wrong it should be older by the minute not over by the minute, all in all good tab 4stars
