@CHORDS: Mike A. Hall (mhall@moe.coe.uga.edu)
In the Shelter
By: Jimmy Buffett
1971

Intro:  A  E    A  E
E
    In the shelter
                                              A
    In the mornin' as the sun is brightly gleaming
F#m
    I heard her crying out,  "What is it all about?
      E                    A               E
    I just don't know, but I can't go back home"

E
    Lonely princess
                                                A
    All the days out on your own are growing empty
F#m
    Nothing is going well
                                E
    If you could only tell them how you feel
         A                  E
    But they're too real to understand
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jimmy_buffett/in_the_shelter_crd.html ]
Chorus:
   A
     Too many trite expressions
                                 E
     Ending in forced rejections long ago
   A
     To many innocent faces
                                E
     In too many far out places somethings wrong
                          B
     Let me tell you that somethings wrong
                    A                       E
     It's been that way so long, and it's a shame

On the street car
To the city where she knows she may lose it all
Riding for just a dime, takin' her own sweet time
And knowing well that this could be her final fall

Past the boutique
To the alley down the river, people pass her by
She sits on a big gray rock, takes off her boots and socks
Not knowin' what she will do next just starts to cry

Chorus:
   A
     Too many wild rejections
                               E
     Endin' in angry questions from her dad
   A
     Too many T.V. dinners
                                      E
     Ah, everyone loves a winner, but she was lost
     A                 E
     No one knows the trials she had

(Repeat first verse, then)
E                             A               E      A  E    A  E
Hell, I just don't know,  but I can't go back home               (fade)
