IT'S FIVE O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE
Alan Jackson & Jimmy Buffett
CD: Greatest Hits II
2003, Arista Records


Intro

The (D) sun is hot and (A7) that old clock is (D) moving slow
And, (A7) so am I
The (D) work day passes (A7) like molasses, in (Bm) wintertime
But, (A7) it's Ju(D)ly
Gettin (G) paid by the hour
And (D) older by the minute
(A7) Boss just pushed me (D) over the limit
Like to (G) call him something
(D) Think I'll just call it a (A7) day

(D) Pour me something (G) tall and strong
Make it a (A7) Hurricane before (D) I go insane
It's only half past (G) 12, but I don't (A7) care
(No chord) It's 5 o'clock, (D) somewhere

(D) (G) (A7) (D)

Well, (D) this lunch break is (A7) gonna take all (D) afternoon
And (A7) half the night
To(D)morrow morning, (A7) I know there'll be (Bm) hell to pay
Hey but, (A7) that's al(D)right
Ain't (G) had a day off now 
In (D) over a year
My (A7) Jamaican vacation's
Gonna (D) start right here
If the (G) phone's for me
You can (D) tell them I've just sailed a(A7)way

(D) Pour me something (G) tall and strong
Make it a (A7) Hurricane before (D) I go insane
It's only half past (G) 12, but I don't (A7) care
It's 5 o'clock, (D) somewhere

Solo

I could (Bm) pay off my tab
Pour my(Bm/A)self in cab and be (G) back to (A) work before (D) 2
At a (Bm) moment like this
I (Bm/A) can't help but wonder
(Em) What would Jimmy Buffett (A7) do

I'd say - (D) Pour me something (G) tall and strong
Make it a (A7) Hurricane before (D) I go insane
It's only half past (G) 12, but I don't (A7) care

(D) Pour me something (G) tall and strong
Make it a (A7) Hurricane before (D) I go insane
It's only half past (G) 12, but I don't (A7) care
(G) I don't care
(No chord) It's 5 o'clock, (D) somewhere

Ad lib and fade out

Well, thanks....
-WildCard76 | 6/16/2003

-stevef | 6/18/2003
I'll add that chord.......it's just a Bm chord, with an A bass
-WildCard76 | 6/19/2003

-frickity | 7/15/2003
HEY EXCELENT JOB ON THE TAB!!! HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE VIDEO?
I THINK HE PLAYS CAPO II. TRY IT OUT..SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.
-parrothead21 | 7/20/2003
Yes, you could easily play this with the capo on the second fret.
Just change your key to C, instead of D, once you've capo'd.
-WildCard76 | 7/21/2003
Gator, a7 is 002020
-cfalse36 | 8/7/2003
Guitar dude, some people have not been playing guitar all their
life, i have been playing for a year and i have a tough time with b
chords, give him a break.

-cfalse36 | 8/7/2003
All of those who born knowing how to finger an A7 say 'aye...We all
learned it once and it felt good when we got it ;-).

-jstevensss | 8/12/2003
This is too funny!
-WildCard76 | 8/13/2003
Thanks for tabbing this. I've been playing for about five years and
still don't have the ear to figure things out.

Great tab. little skechy. I not sure but isn't the line "getting
paid by the hour and over by the minute"?? That makes since more
right.
-high_octane | 8/31/2003
If you own the album, check the lyrics. They are correct.
-WildCard76 | 9/11/2003
My mistake, I just play by ear. It's all gravy
-high_octane | 9/11/2003
No problem...LOL...
-WildCard76 | 9/11/2003

-countryjjim | 9/19/2003

close enough for all of us stitting around the campfire halfway
through our selected case of suds.

-bertuzzi | 10/10/2003

-thesquirrel16 | 11/19/2003
I've been (trying) to play guitar for about a year now. Always looking to find good stuff to improve my performance. Thanks for the tab. If you'all got any good suggestions please let me know, like the best way to learn how to bar chord :-)
-tailgunner | 1/11/2004
Great tab.........but what it Ad lib and how do you play Am/G
-HandrewTwatlers | 6/15/2004
A7 is only second fret 4th string and 2nd string (from bottom)
-cpickich2 | 7/28/2004
G7 is 320001
-chiefsfan31 | 8/26/2004
What is all the discusion about an A7,
don't get freaked because it has a 7th in it.
It is two strings, as easy as an Em.
Play an A, lift your middle and slide your ring down a fret,
you have an A7.

Sounds good Wild Card
-ballst83 | 9/8/2004

-telebmonster | 12/1/2004
