																				ok, so this is my first tab and i wrote it with my aunt and uncle and they are total 
so dont bash it, im pretty sure its the right chords version!!!

D

The wind is in from africa
A

last night i couldnt sleep
         G                     D

Oh you know it sure is hard to live here carey
        A

but its really not my home

D

my finger nails are filthy
A

ive got beach tar on my feet
        G                D

and i miss my clean white living
         A

and my, fancy french cologne



    


Chorus
A---------------       D
Oh carey get out your cane
                 A

i'll put on some silver
G                    D

oh you're a mean old daddy
   A        D

but i like you

(repeat chords through)

Come on down to the mermaid cafe
and i will buy you a bottle of wine
and we'll laugh and toast to nothing
and, smash our empty glasses down

lets have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
a round for these friends of mine
lets have another round for the bright red devil
who keeps me in this tourist town

CHORUS
Come on, carey, get out your cane
I'll put on some silver
Oh you're a mean old daddy, but i like you
i like you, i like you i like you

Maybe i'll go to amsterdam
or maybe i'll go to rome
and rent me a grand piano and
put some flowers round my room

but lets not talk about fare-thee-wells now
the night is a stary dome
and they're playing that scratchy rock and roll
beneath the matella moon

CHORUS
Come on, carey, get out your cane
And i'll put on some silver
You're a mean old daddy, but i like you

The wind is in from africa
Last night i couldn't sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here
But, it's really not my home

Maybe it's been too long a time
Since i was scramblin' down in the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
And that fancy french cologne

CHORUS
Oh carey, get out your cane
I'll put on my finest silver
We'll go to the mermaid cafe
Have fun tonight
I said, oh, you're a mean old daddy, but you're out of sight

The wind is in from Africa
Last night I couldn't sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here Carey
But it's really not my home
My fingernails are filthy
I've got beach tar on my feet
And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne

Oh Carey get out your cane (Carey get out your cane)
And I'll put on some silver (I'll put on some silver)
Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you fine

Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe
And I will buy you a bottle of wine
And we'll laugh and toast to nothing and
Smash our empty glasses down
Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine
Let's have another round for the bright red devil, who
Keeps me in this tourist town

Come on Carey get out your cane (Carey get out your cane)
And I'll put on some silver (I'll put on some silver)
Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you
I like you, I like you, I like you

Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
Or maybe I'll go to Rome
And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room
But let's not talk about fare-thee-wells now
The night is a starry dome
And they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll
Beneath the Matalla Moon

Come on Carey get out your cane (Carey get out your cane)
And I'll put on some silver (I'll put on some silver)
You're a mean old Daddy, but I like you

The wind is in from Africa
Last night I couldn't sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here, but it's
Really not my home
Maybe it's been too long a time since I was
Scramblin' down in the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen and that
Fancy French cologne

Oh Carey, get out your cane (Carey get out your cane)
I'll put on my finest silver (I'll put on some silver)
We'll go to the Mermaid Cafe, have fun tonight
I said, oh, you're a mean old Daddy, but you're out of sight
