The Wino And I Know

By: Jimmy Buffett
1974
The ice cream man he's a hillbilly fan
Got seventy-eights by Hank Snow
Walks down the street, shufflin' his feet
To a rhythm that only he knows

And I've seen him in so many places
I saw him the night I was born
In a Bourbon Street bar, I received my first scar
From an old man so tattered and torn

Chorus:
And the wino and I know the pain of street singin'
Like a door-to-door salesman knows the pains of bell ringin'
Strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song

Coffee is strong at the Cafe Du Monde
Donuts are too hot to touch
Just like a fool, when those sweet goodies cool
I eat 'til I eat way too much

'Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me
Be they pastry or lobster or love
I'm just tryin' to get by bein' quiet and shy
In a world full of pushin' and shove

Chorus:
And the wino and I know the pain of back bustin'
Like the farmer knows the pain of his pickup truck rustin'
Strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song

Sweet senorita won't you please come with me
Back to the island honey, back to the sea
Back to the only place that I want to be

Chorus:
And the wino and I know the joy of the ocean
Like a boy knows the joy of his milkshake in motion
Strange situation, wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song
Yes it's a strange situation, a wild occupation
Livin' my life like a song

That's my second favorite music site.

A Buffett song that's not well known even among Parrotheads: Please Take Your Drunken 15 Year Old Girlfriend Home

For those who have the album, there's no lost verse . . .

By the way - I got Jimmy to sign my Rancho Deluxe album last November when he came to Orlando to sing for the Democratic candidates.

Whether it's a lost verse or not makes no difference. He sang it on a live CD, so now it is officially part of the song.

Gee, that's the one album I still have only on vinyl. . .

I know of 3 or 4 other alternate verses as well from various (unrecorded) concerts.
