GRAPEFRUIT JUICY FRUIT
By Jimmy Buffet
Tabbed by Eric Pohl (eric@is.net)

Here's my take on the Jimmy Buffet song "Grapefruit Juicy Fruit."  It
seems
like a good exercise for beginning fingerstylers (like me).  Suggestions
and 
corrections are always appreciated.

The intro and the verses are mostly fingerstyle with some rhythmic
strumming
tossed in:

CHORUS

 Dm            G       Cmaj7        
     And oh it gets so    damn lonely
     
 Dm              G           Cmaj7
     when you're on a plane alone
     
 Dm                   G               Cmaj7                      
     And if I had the money honey I'd strap you in beside me
     
 D7                           G (tacet)                   
     And never ever leave you leave you at home all alone and cryin'
    
    
Here's the lick on "all alone and cryin'":

Verses (sing with the tabbed stuff)

Grapefruit   
A bathin' suit
Chew a little juicy fruit
Wash away the night
Drive-in    
You guzzle gin
Commit a little mortal sin
It's good for the soul

(chorus)

Ten speed
No need
My pickup gets me where I please
Chuggin' down the street
But I'll be leavin'
In a little while
So close your eyes and I'll
I'll be back real soon

(chorus)

Thanks to Mike Hall, from whom I copped the lyrics.
