Banana Republics

Performed By Jimmy Buffett 
 
(These tabs are dumbed down a bit but they sound okay)  
 
Intro and the verses  
 
G  
 
 
Am  
 
D  
 
G            C                  G  
 
 
   
G                                        
Down to the Banana Republics 
Am 
Down to the tropical sun   
      D7                         
Go the expatriated Americans 
G 
Hopin' to find some fun   
 G                                  
Some of them go for the sailing 
Am 
Caught by the lure of the sea   
D7                                
Tryin' to find what is ailing 
G 
Livin' in the land of the free   
 G                                       
Some of them are running from lovers 
Am 
Leaving no forward address   
D7   
Some of them are running tons of ganja    
        G   
some are running from the I.R.S  
 
 
   
Chorus (see tab below) 
 
     Dm   
     Late at night you will find them 
           Am   
     In the cheap hotels and bars 
      C                G          
     Hustling the senioritas  
     C         G        D         G        
     While they dance beneath the stars   
         Dm                               
     Spending those renegade pesos  
     Eb                  D  
     On a bottle of rum and a lime   
       C                              G   
     Singin' give me some words I can dance to 
     C     G     D7      G  
     Or a mel - ody that rhymes   
   
 
First you learn the native customs    
Soon a word of spanish or two   
You know that you cannot trust them 
'cause they know they can't trust you   
Expatriated Americans, feelin' so all alone    
Telling themselves the same lies    
That they told themselves back home   
   
(solo) G  Am D  G   
       Dm   Am C  G C G   
   
Down to the Banana Republics  
Things aren't as warm as they seem   
None of the natives are buying any  
Second-hand American dreams 
 
(repeat chorus)   
   
Down to the Banana Republics  
Down to the tropical sun 
Go the expatriated Americans  
Hopin' to find some fun   
 
(repeat chords and fade)

   G            D  
 
Dm  
 
 
 on   a   bottle    of  rum and a lime.....
