HE WENT TO PARIS
Doug Supernaw
From the CD "DEEP THOUGHTS FROM A SHALLOW MIND"
   


Intro
             
(A) He went to Paris lookin' for answers
To (D) questions that bothered him (A) so
He was impressive, young and aggressive
(D) Savin' the world on his (E7) own
But the (D) warm summer breezes
The (A) French wines and cheeses
(D) Put his ambition at (E7) bay
The (A) summers and winters
Scattered like splinters               
And (D) four or five (E) years slipped a(A)way
 
Then (A) he went to England, played the piano
And (D) married an actress named (A) Kim
They had a fine life, she was a good wife
And (D) bore him a young son named (E7) Jim
And (D) all of the answers 
To (A) all of the questions
(D) Locked in his attic one (E7) day
'Cause (A) he liked the quiet clean country livin'
And (D) twenty more (E) years slipped a(A)way
 
Well the (A) war took his baby, the bombs killed his lady
And (D) left him with only one (A) eye
His body was battered, his whole world was shattered
And (D) all he could do was just (E7) cry
While the (D) tears were a-fallin' (A) he was recallin'
(D) Answers he never (E7) found
So he (A) hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean
And (D) left England (E7) without a (A) sound
 
Solo

Now he (A) lives in the islands, fishes the pilin's 
And (D) drinks his Green Label each (A) day
Writing his memoirs, losin' his hearin'
But he (D) don't care what most people (E7) say
Through (D) eighty-six years of (A) perpetual motion
If he (D) likes you he'll smile and he'll (E7) say 
"Jimmy, (A) some of it's magic, some of it's tragic
But I (D) had a good (E) life all the (A) way"

(A) He went to Paris lookin' for answers
To (D) questions that bothered him (A) so
