[Verse 1]
D           C
Hey mister, You mister
G      D      Em
I just want a dime
         C             D            Em
'Cause I need a cup of coffee and a moment of your time
C               D                G     D       Em
I can tell your raising hell the way I used to do
But I wish someone woulda' talked to me
      C              D
Like I wanna talk to you

[Verse 2]
     G                   D
I've been to Georgia and California
    Em               Bm
and Anywhere I could run
  C                G
I stole a woman in Tennessee
       Am               D
and we made love in the sun
          G                 D
But I ran out of places and friendly faces
Em                  Bm
Because I had to be free
C            G                 Am    C       G
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

[Verse 3]
D              C
Thanks mister, thanks mister
    G            D    Em
But please don't walk away
         C                 D                Em
'Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
C            D                G      D       Em
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Won't you share a part of an old mans heart
       C             D
On the day before he dies

[Verse 4]
     G               D
I've been to China & Asia Minor
   Em                  Bm
On any ship that would sail
  C                         G
I made some noise with some good old boys
   Am                 D
We wrecked a southern jail
              G                       D
I've seen the best men crawl and some teardrops fall
            Em              Bm
There ain't nothing I ain't seen
C            G                 Am    C       G
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

[Guitar Instrumental]
C       D      G  D  Em
C       D

[Verse 5]
          G                 D
I've even been to marriage. Where children cry for 
Em                    Bm
someone they couldn't find
C                  G
Never knowing that I was searching
    Am            D
For things I left behind
             G                      D
I thought my heart could wait but I learned too late
     Em                   Bm
Only love can make people free
C            G                 Am    C       G 
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me (x2)
