#36 in 12968.

INTRO:  D C (2x) 
  
#1.   
C   D                 D7 
Sometimes I imagine myself as a drifter, 
F#        Bm               E             A 
seeker of fortunes, connoisseur of great wines. 
G               Em         D 
Dashing through meadows of yellow and green, 
G         Em          D 
trying to catch the impossible dream, 
C                          A   A7 
leaving the straight life  be..hind. 
  
#2.  
D                         D7 
Sometimes my thoughts may find me in Mexico, 
F#         Bm           E         A 
drinking tequila, going out of my mind. 
G        Em        D 
Having a ball on a couple of bob, 
G            Em        D 
treating the ladies to corn on the cob, 
C                          A   A7 
leaving the straight life  be..hind. 
  
CHORUS:  
G                     F#m 
Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear, 
    Em          A           D 
she comes to me softly with crackers and beer, 
C                        G                        
winking and blinking and blowin' in my ear, 
D        C           A   A7 
running away with my mi..nd. 
G             A               Em         D 
It's great to be in love, I'm not really thinking of, 
C                         F   A            
leaving the straight life be..hind,       
         D         A          D 
I'm just playing a game in my mind. 
  
D     C        D     C              D     C        D     C 
Do n' do do do do do do do do do....do n' do do do do do do do do do. 
  
#3.   
D                     D7 
Once in a while in my mind I go bummin’, 
F#         Bm             E        A 
going to nowhere, with no worry of time. 
G        Em           D 
Running along chasing after a train, 
G         Em          D 
humming a song in the sun and the rain, 
C                          A    A7 
leaving the straight life  be...hind. 

#4.
D                      D7 
I can just see me on a tropical island, 
F#         Bm                E       A 
riding the surf and drinking coconut wine. 
G         Em              D 
Having me fun with golden girls in the sand, 
G           Em             D 
chasing the sun through an innocent land, 
C                          A   A7 
leaving the straight life  be..hind. 

CHORUS:  
G                     F#m 
Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear, 
    Em          A           D 
she comes to me softly with crackers and beer, 
C                        G                        
winking and blinking and blowin' in my ear, 
D        C           A   A7 
running away with my mi..nd. 
G             A               Em         D 
It's great to be in love, I'm not really thinking of, 
C                         F   A            
leaving the straight life be..hind,       
         D         A          D 
I'm just playing a game in my mind.

D     C        D     C              D     C        D     C
