    IT'S FIVE O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE   Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett

Intro  G A7 D D D
     D              A7                 D             A7                
The sun is hot and that old clock is moving slow And so am I
     D               A7                 Bm           A7                 
The work day passes like molasses in  wintertime But it's July
         G                     A 
Getting paid by the hour And older by the minute
 D                  Bm        
Boss just pushed me over the limit
         G                   Em                         A7      
Like to call him something  Think I'll just call it a  day

CHORUS:
D                  G                   
Pour me something tall and strong
             A7            D 
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
                      G                  A7
It's only half past twelve but I don't  care

 No chord        D            Play intro chords
It's 5 o'clock somewhere


        D                   A7              D            A7      
Well  this lunch break is gonna take all afternoon And  half the night
     D            A7                   Bm                   A7  
To-morrow morning I know there'll be  hell to pay Hey but that's alright
        G                      A  
Ain't  had a day off now  In over a year
       D                        Bm   
My  Jamaican vacation's Gonna  start right here
        G                      Em                  A7        
If the phone's for me You can tell them I've just sailed away

to chorus, lead
        Bm                      Bm                 A                   D
I could pay off my tab Pour my-self in cab and be back to work before two
       Bm                Bm                    Em                      A7 
At a moment like this I can't help but wonder What would Jimmy Buffett do

"Funny you should ask Allan, I'd said"                to ending








ENDING:

D                  G                   
Pour me something tall and strong
             A7            D 
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
                      G                  A7
It's only half past twelve but I don't  care  
D                  G                   
Pour me something tall and strong
             A7            D 
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
                      G                  A7
It's only half past twelve but I don't  care (He don't care)
                n.c.             D 
I don't care  It's 5 o'clock  somewhere

JImmy:  What time zone am I on ?  What country am I in?
Alan:   It doesn't matter it's five o'clock somewhere

Alan:   I've heard that
Jimmy:  You've been there haven't ya?
Alan:   Yes sir
Jimmy:  I've seen your boat there
Alan:   I've been to Margaitaville a few times
Jimmy:  Alright  Well that's good
Alan:   Stumbled my way back
Jimmy:  OK let's make sure you can keep it in between the navigational beaker
Alan:   (laughs) Between the booths
Jimmy:  Alright Well it's time to fly let's go somewhere
Alan:   I'm ready Let's crank it up
Jimmy:  Let's get out o fhere
