He Went To Paris Recorded by Waylon Jennings Written by Jimmy Buffett
G C G He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions that bothered him so C D7 He was impressive young and aggressive savin' the world on his own C G C D7 Warm summer breezes French wines and cheeses put his ambition at bay G The summers and winters scattered like splinters C D7 G And four or five years slipped away
He went to England played the piano C G And married an actress named Kim
They had a good life she was a good wife C D7 And bore him a young son named Jim C G All of the answers and all of the questions C D7 He locked in his attic one day G Cause he liked the quiet clean country livin' C D7 G And twenty more years slipped away
War took his baby bombs killed his lady C G And left him with only one eye
His body was battered his whole world was shattered C D7 All he could do was just cry C G While the tears were fallin' he was recallin' C D7 Answers that he never found G So he hopped him a freighter skidded the ocean C D7 G And left England without a sound
Now he lives on the islands fishes the pilin' C G And drinks his green label each day
Writin' his memoirs losin' his hearin' C D7 But he don't care what most people say C G After eighty-six years of perpetual motion C D7 If he likes you he'll smile and say G There was some of the magic lot of it tragic C D7 G But I had a good life all the way
C D7 G He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions that bothered him so
