Gordon Lightfoot - Biscuit City


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO:] C

[VERSE 1:]

I'd like to be in Biscuit City
        F           F#m7-5
With my banjo in my hand
        C/G            Am7
I don't need no long vacation
        Em7           G
In some foreign land
           Am              F
'Cause the sound of my own breathing 
         C/E          Am
Has been turning to a sigh 
  F                 C
I wish that I could make the time 
   G             F           C
To be in Biscuit City by and by


[VERSE 2:]

Oh, the water is of emerald
        F                 F#m7-5
And the beach is white as snow 
    C/G            Am7
And everyone's got money
       Em7          G
And no place to go 
     Am               F
In a land of milk and honey
       C/E             Am
It can really make you smile 
    F          C
And if I had a ticket 
  G                     F         C
I would stay in Biscuit City for awhile


[VERSE 3:]

All the girls are in bikinis
        F               F#m7-5
All the boys are in the buff 
         C/G       Am7
With the baby in between
               Em7          G
And that makes three of us 
        Am                 F
And the streets are all so quiet
        C/E               Am
And the walls are squeaky clean 
  F                    C
I think you ain't been nowhere 
         G               F             C
'Til the town of Biscuit City you have seen


[INSTRUMENTAL:] C   F  F#m7-5  C/G  Am7  Em7  G  
                Am  F  C/E  Am  F  C  G  F  C


[VERSE 4:]

I'd rather be in Biscuit City
        F           F#m7-5
With my banjo in my hand 
     C/G          Am7
Than take a big vacation
        Em7           G
In some foreign land 
           Am              F
'Cause the sound of my own breathing
         C/E          Am
Has been turning to a sigh 
      F               C
If it were not for misfortune 
        G             F           C
I would be in Biscuit City by and by 
      F               C
If it were not for misfortune 
        G               F           C
I would stay in Biscuit City 'til I die
