Pirate Flag - Kenny Chesney

Intro:
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1:
       A                         G
Well I come from a little bitty, homegrown small town,
C                     D
Smoky Mountains, nice place to hang around.
A          G
Moonshine, that's where they make it,
D
Put it in a jug, makes you wanna get naked.
A                           G
But I jumped on a greyhound bus one night
C                              D
And took it all the way to the end of the line.
        A                G
Stepped down in the sun, when my feet hit the sand
D
What a long strange trip

Chorus:
           A          G              D
I spent my whole life running around (running around)
              A          G              D
Still let the wind kinda blow me around
                 A         G
Well I dropped a note in a bottle
     D
To a long-legged model
      A                  G
And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
  D
A pirate flag and an island girl

Intro

Verse 2:
        A                            G
Well my friends back home think I've gone and lost my mind
C                         D
Take a sip of rum and you really would know why
A                         G
Jolly Roger flying on the picnic table
D
Blender in the kitchen, willin' and able
      A                       G
Don't know what makes you say "What the hell"
             C                  D
But when the salt air catches a hold of that sail
A                             G
Something 'bout her makes you just wanna dance
D
And she loves to dance

Chorus:
           A          G              D
I spent my whole life running around (running around)
              A          G              D
Still let the wind kinda blow me around
                 A         G
Well I dropped a note in a bottle
     D
To a long-legged model
      A                        G
And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
  D
A pirate flag and an island girl

(Pirate flag and an island girl)

Bridge:
  C
I remember back home 'neath the big ol' moon
         D
Talking 'bout the new world and life was good
C                               D
But here we are in a local bar drinkin' shootin' stars

Chorus:
                 A          G              D
I might spend my whole life running around (running around)
              A          G              D
Still let the wind kinda blow me around
                 A         G
Well I dropped a note in a bottle
     D
To a long-legged model
      A                        G
And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
D
A pirate flag and an island girl
A     G     D
          A pirate flag and an island girl
A     G     D
          A pirate flag and an island girl
Intro Riff
          A pirate flag and an island girl
Intro Riff
          A pirate flag and an island girl


This is a fill found between the first chorus and the 2nd verse.  It is also played 
again in the very last part of the song where Kenny repeats "A pirate flag and an island girl"
