IT'S MIDNIGHT AND I'M NOT FAMOUS YET
Jimmy Buffett
Album: Live In Las Vegas
Submitted by: Christopher R.
December 19, 2003

Capo 3rd Fret

Intro: (Am)  (E)  (Am)  (E)  (Am)  (E)

(Am) Catch the elevator from the penthouse suite
And take it (E) down to the casino
The (Am) god-almighty sound of money movin' round
Can be heard (E) all the way to Reno

Well it's (C) midnight and (G) I'm not (Am) famous yet
(C) Tryin' to win it (G) all with (Am) one more bet
(C) Nothin' can (G) stop my (Am) thirty-two hop
Or my (D) ten dollar - yo yo yo
It's midnight, I'm just gettin' ready to (Am) roll 

(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight 

Now (Am) Lester Polyester signs another marker
Like the (E) high rollers do
(Am) Seven come eleven
His brand new baby needs some (E) Prada shoes

Well it's (C) midnight and (G) she's not (Am) famous yet
(C) Tryin' to win it (G) all with (Am) one more bet
(C) Nothin' can (G) stop a (Am) thirty-two hop
Or a (D) ten dollar - yo yo yo
It's midnight, Skippie's gettin' ready to (Am) roll

(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight
(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight

Solo:  (C)  (G)  (Am)  (C)  (G)  (Am)  (C)  (G)  (Am)  (D)  (D)  (D)

(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight
(Am)  (G) it's (E) Midnight

They're (Am) pagin' someone we know, Lester hits a keno
He's (E) not leavin' yet
(Am) Vacuum cleaners hummin' lounge act still is strummin'
It's the (E) twenty-first set

It's (C) midnight and (G) they're not (Am) famous yet
(C) Tryin' to win it (G) all with (Am) one more bet
(C) Nothin' can (G) stop their (Am) thirty-two hop
Or my (D) ten dollar - yo - thirty-two hop
It's midnight, the reefer's gettin' ready to (Am) roll

(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight
Oh..(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight
(Am)  (G) it's (E) Midnight
(Am)  (G)  (E) Midnight

fade out...

What a song!

It's "His brand new baby needs a new pair of shoes.." However

Old craps saying you know.

Oh, ok. I didn't take this from the original recording. He says "Prada shoes" on the live disc.
