                              G                     Em7                     G              Em7
                      Now you country fools in your one-horse town, you can laugh at me
                           G                         Em7                    G              Em7
                      It's plain as rain that you've never been down to the southern sea
                         G                  Em7                G          Em7
                      To see me now is like watching a fish on dry land
                        G                   Em7                F/C C
                      I only wish you could see me down in the is- lands
                      C        D        G
                      Mister, that's my home
                             F             C              Am7            C/D     G Em7 G Em7
                      What a fool I was to leave the only happiness I've known.
                              G                     Em7                     G              Em7
                      You see me comin', you wink your eye and call me Captain Jim
                                 G                       Em7                 
                      And when I don't do nothin' but to walk on by you say, 
                             G                  Em7
                              "Baby get a load of him."
                      G                 Em7                 G              Em7
                      All I need is the sea and the sky and I know where I stand
                        G                           Em7                F/C               C
                      instead of you hicks straight out of the sticks deciding I ain't a man
                      C        D                G
                      You'll never understand;
                         F               C               Am7              D  
                      Up here I'm just a whiskey bum but down there I'm a king
                         F                    C               Am7           Dsus4
                      It sounds just like the angels up in heaven when they sing:
                      D7       G    Em7   G           Em7    G                Em7
                      "Welcome home,      welcome home."   -- Such a sight to see
                         F                C     G/B  Am7             
                      instead of some Salvation Army sister singin' 
                       C/D              G     Em7 G Em7
                      "Nearer My God to Thee."
                            G                     Em7       G              Em7
                      Now I know that the Yankee whiskey is takin' away my mind
                            G                    Em7        G               Em7
                      and I know that run is the only drink suitable to man-kind
                            G                       Em7      G                 Em7
                      And I know that this tree I'm under is shaped entirely wrong
                        G              Em7                F/C               C
                      I need to see a gentle palm tree and I won't wait too long
                             C             D          G
                      I can feel that it's comin' on strong
                          F                  C         Am7            D
                      The first cold wind of winter is flappin' in my clothes
                      F              C               Am7            C/D
                      Showin' me the way with the direction that it blows.
                              G     Em              G         Em7
                      Welcome home,      welcome home, let it blow. [repeat and fade]
