ok, so this is my first tab and i wrote it with my aunt and uncle and they are total 
so dont bash it, im pretty sure its the right chords version!!!


[Verse 1]

D
The wind is in from Africa
A
last night i couldn't sleep
         G                     D
Oh you know it sure is hard to live here Carey
        A
but its really not my home

D
my finger nails are filthy
A
I've got beach tar on my feet
        G                D
and I miss my clean white linen
         A
and my, fancy french cologne


[Chorus]

A---------------       D
Oh Carey get out your cane
                 A
I'll put on some silver
G                    D
Oh you're a mean old daddy
   A        D
but I like you

  (strum down)
e|-7-7---5---3---2------|
B|-8-8---7---5---3------|
G|-7-7---6---4---2------|
D|-0-0---0---0---0------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

(repeat chords through)


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Come on down to the mermaid cafe
and I will buy you a bottle of wine
and we'll laugh and toast to nothing
and, smash our empty glasses down

lets have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
a round for these friends of mine
lets have another round for the bright red devil
who keeps me in this tourist town


[Chorus]
(same chords)

Come on, Carey, get out your cane
I'll put on some silver
Oh you're a mean old daddy, but I like you
I like you, I like you, I like you


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
or maybe I'll go to Rome
and rent me a grand piano and
put some flowers round my room

but lets not talk about fare-thee-wells now
the night is a starry dome
and they're playing that scratchy rock and roll
beneath the mantel of the moon


[Chorus]

Come on, Carey, get out your cane
And I'll put on some silver
You're a mean old daddy, but I like you


[Verse 4]
(same as verse 1)

The wind is in from Africa
Last night I couldn't sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here
But, it's really not my home

Maybe it's been too long a time
Since I was scramblin' down in the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
And that fancy french cologne


[Chorus]

Oh Carey, get out your cane
I'll put on my finest silver
We'll go to the mermaid cafe
Have fun tonight
I said, oh, you're a mean old daddy, but you're out of sight


end with

e|-7-7---5---3---2------|
B|-8-8---7---5---3------|
G|-7-7---6---4---2------|
D|-0-0---0---0---0------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|  

end on a D
