@SONG: Cheeseburger in Paradise
Cheeseburger in Paradise
By: Jimmy Buffett
1978
>From "Son of a Son of a Sailor"

Intro: ** Play "|" as strums or beats

       Bm ||||  A |
       Bm ||||  G |
       Bm ||||  A | D |

	  G          A	        D
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
G              A         D
Made it nearly seventy days
         G             A               D
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds
E				  A
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays

       G	 A           D	      G
But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
G            A           Bm
Some kind of sensuous treat
       G           D         G	   D
Not zucchini, fettucini or bulgar wheat
      G         D         A            D
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Chorus:----------------------------------------------------------------
      G    A         D
     Cheeseburger in paradise
     G         A              D
     Heaven on Earth with an onion slice
     G          A          D
     Not too particular, not too precise
                G     D         A    D
     I'm just a Cheeseburger in paradise
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bm ||||  A | D |

	  G          A	        D
Heard about the old time sailor men
G              A         D
They eat the same thing again and again
         G             A               D
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
E				  A
Well it reminds me of the menu at a Holiday Inn






       G	 A           D	      G
But times change, sailors these days
G            A           Bm
When I'm in port I get what I need
       G           D         G	   D
Not just Havanas or bananas or daiquiris
      G         D         A            D
But that American creation on which I feed
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Chorus:
   G    A         D
Cheeseburger in Paradise
   G         A              D
Medium rare with mustard be nice
   G          A          D
Heaven on Earth with an onion slice
            G     D         A    D
I'm just a Cheeseburger in Paradise

(Just knock on the guitar or silence the strings for this part) 1 strum = /
In the song it sounds like a clap

    ///        /       //         /
**  I like mine with lettuce and tomato
     //         /       //         /

    //          /       //         /
**  Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer

**  Well good God almighty which way do I steer for my

Chorus:
  G    A         D
Cheeseburger in Paradise
    G         A              D
Makin' the best of every virtue and vice
    G          A          D
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice to get a
  G     D         A    D
Cheeseburger in Paradise
     G     D         A    D
I need a Cheeseburger in Paradise
     G     D         A    D
I'm just a Cheeseburger in Paradise

       Bm ||||  A | D ||

(If you plan on performing this in public, I might suggest ending it on this point after the last D)

**  Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
    //          /       //         /
**  Well good God almighty which way do I steer
