******************* HE WENT TO PARIS ********************

performed by Waylon Jennings.


Verse 1:
         A                                        D
	He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions 
              E7           A
	That bothered him so
             
	He was impressive,young and agressive
         D                      E7 
	Savin' the world on his own
         D                    A   
	Warm summer breezes,French wine and cheeses 
         D                  E7   
	Put his ambition at bay
             A                         
	The summers and winters scattered like splinters
             D            E7             A  
	And four or five years slipped away


Verse 2:
         A                                       D 
	He went to England,played the piano,and married
            E7            A
	An actress named Kim

	They had a good life,she was a good wife 
             D                          E7  
	And bore him a young son named Jim
         D                     A    
	All of the answers and all of the questions
            D                       E7
	He locked in his attic one day
                   A  
	'Cause he liked the quiet clean country livin'
              D          E7             A
	And twenty more years slipped away


Verse 3:
         A                                           D  
	War took his baby,Bombs killed his lady and left him
             E7        A 
	With only one eye

	His body was battered,his whole world was shattered
         D                        E7      
	All he could do was just cry
                   D                A
	While the tears were fallin' he was recallin'
            D                   E7  
	Answers that he never found
               A 
	So he hopped in a freighter,skidded the ocean
             D            E7         A     
	And left England without a sound


Verse 4:
         A                                                  D
	Now he lives in the islands,fishes the pilin' and drinks
              E7              A
	His Green label each day

	Writing his memoirs,losin' his hearin'
                D                           E7
	But he don't care what most people say
               D                   A
	After eighty-six years of perpetual motion
               D                         E7
	If he likes you he'll smile and say
                A                  
	"Jimmy,some of it's magic,probably tragic,
               D          E7           A   
	But i had a good life all the way"

            A                                     D  
	He went to Paris lookin' for answers to questions
              E7           A   
	That bothered him so
