   I'm finally starting to type up the chords for the songs on Jimmy
Buffett's _Songs You Know By Heart_.  I'm trying to do this at work,
so it will take a while.  Anyway, here's "Cheeseburger in Paradise" :

	   G              A	        D
Tried to a-mend my car-   nivorous  hab-its
           Made it nearly seventy days
losin'     weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds

drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.  But at

   Not zuc-chini, fettu-cini or bul-gar wheat, but a big

Additional lyrics:

Heard about the old-time sailor men
They eat the same thing again and again
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
Well, it reminds me of the menu at a Holiday Inn.

But times have changed for sailors these days
When I'm in port I get what I need.
Not just Havanas or bananas or daiquiris
But that American creation on which I feed.


I like mine with lettuce and tomato		       \
Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes			\__    GUITAR
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer			/    TACET HERE
Well, good God Almighty, which way do I steer for my   /
