Jimmy Buffett When I pay my bills Gonna leave these Tennessee hills Take my lady to the sea That's where we both come from That's where we both belong Think I'll go back to the Keys.
(Chorus) 'Cause I don't want the thing that brings confusion Where people recognize you on a plane All I want's the quiet and the comforts That livin' with my lovely lady brings.
Somehow we survived the double talk and jive Things are looking better all the time I owe her all I can 'cause she made me understand The simple way that we should live our lives. (Chorus)
Let me tell you now she can eat her own weight up in crab meat And there's plenty of that down there by the sea Well, we're sailing in those warm December breezes Sendin' picture post cards back to Tennessee. (Repeat chorus) 1973 Let There Be Music, Inc. (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved
