******************* HE WENT TO PARIS ********************

performed by Waylon Jennings.


Verse 1:
         C                                        F
	He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions
              G7           C
	That bothered him so

	He was impressive,young and agressive
         F                      G7
	Savin' the world on his own
         F                    C
	Warm summer breezes,French wine and cheeses
         F                  G7
	Put his ambition at bay
             C
	The summers and winters scattered like splinters
             F            G7             C
	And four or five years slipped away


Verse 2:
         C                                       F
	He went to England,played the piano,and married
            G7            C
	An actress named Kim

	They had a good life,she was a good wife
             F                          G7
	And bore him a young son named Jim
         F                     C
	All of the answers and all of the questions
            F                       G7
	He locked in his attic one day
                   C
	'Cause he liked the quiet clean country livin'
              F          G7             C
	And twenty more years slipped away


Verse 3:
         C                                           F
	War took his baby,Bombs killed his lady and left him
             G7        C
	With only one eye

	His body was battered,his whole world was shattered
         F                        G7
	All he could do was just cry
                   F                C
	While the tears were fallin' he was recallin'
            F                   G7
	Answers that he never found
               C
	So he hopped in a freighter,skidded the ocean
             F            G7         C
	And left England without a sound


Verse 4:
         C                                                  F
	Now he lives in the islands,fishes the pilin' and drinks
              G7              C
	His Green label each day

	Writing his memoirs,losin' his hearin'
                F                           G7
	But he don't care what most people say
               F                   C
	After eighty-six years of perpetual motion
               F                         G7
	If he likes you he'll smile and say
                C
	"Jimmy,some of it's magic,probably tragic,
               F          G7           C
	But i had a good life all the way"

            C                                     F
	He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions
              G7           C
	That bothered him so
