      The following is what I believe are the chords for Jimmy Buffett's
"Fruitcakes".
Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Song:"Fruitcakes"
Album:Fruitcakes       C: 032010     D:000232      G: 320033


     No Chord (Percussions instuments, slide guitar)
  You know, I was talkin' to my friend Desdomona the other day, she runs the
space station/bake shop down near Boomtown, and she told me that human beings
are flawed individuals.  That the cosmic bakers took us out of the oven a
little too early, and that's the reason we're as crazy as we are, an d I
believe it.
     Take, for example, when you go to the movies these days, you know.  They
try to sell you this jumbo drink, eight extra ounces of watered down cherry
Coke for an extra 25 cents. I don't want it.  I don't want that much
organization in my life.  I don't want other people thinking for me.  I
want...my Junior Mints!  Where did Junior Mints go in the movie?  I don't
want a 12-pound Nestle's crunch for 25 dollars!  I want Junior Mints!  We
need more Fruitcakes in this world!  Less bakers!  We need peple that care!
 I'm mad as hell, and I don't wanna take it anymore!

Chorus:
      C              D      G          C             D        G
      Fruitcakes in the kitchen, fruitcakes on the street

                  C       D               G                      C         D
     G
      Struttin' naked through the crosswalk in the middle of the week

                      C          D       G                      C        D
       G
      Half-baked cookies in the oven, half baked people on the bus

                    C     D      G                  C       D       G
      There's a little bit of fruitcake left in everyone of us

 Verse1:

      C             D         G         C             D        G

      Paradise, lost and found.  Paradise, take a look around

               C       D       G             C              D      G
      I was out in California where I hear they have it all

                    C      D            G                             C
     D      G
      They got riots, fires, and mudslides.  They got sushi in the mall

      C        D           G                C           D         G
      Water bars and brontosaurs, Chinese modern lust

       C              D           G                           C         D
      G
       Shake and bake life with the quake, the secret's in the crust


To Chorus:

Verse 2:
 Spoken: Speakin' of Fruitcakes, how 'bout the government?

               C        D         G                     C            D
               G
       "We lost or martian rocketship", the high-paid sposkesman said

                   C          D    G                     C         D
                G
         Looks like that silly rocket ship has lost its cone-shaped head

                C           D       G                  C       D        G
         We spend 90 jillion dollars, tryin' a get a look at Mars

                  C    D      G                   C    D             G

         I hear Universal laughter ringin' out among the stars

Chorus:
         C              D       G         C               D       G
         Fruitcakes in the Galaxy, Fruitcakes on the Earth

                    C       D           G                   C            D
            G
        Struttin' naked towards Eternity, we've been that way since birth

                         C         D       G                      C        D
       G
        Half-baked cookies in the oven, half-baked people on the bus

                      C     D      G                    C      D       G
        There's a little bit of Fruitcake left in everyone of us


  The rest of the song obvuiosly continues in this pattern.  It's not very
complicated, but it's fun to play.  See you in Margaritaville!

Align your chords with the lyrics better. Also, it's always nice to give all of the lyrics--four stars.
