Another one for all you Parrotheads!! By Jimmy Buffett AFRICAN FRIEND D Disembarking at Duvalier airport A7 G D Seeking transportation to town D As the purple ink dried on his passport A7 G D He could still feel the eyes look around. D Messieur ou y est casino? A7 G D He spoke to the cabbie and smiled D The driver replied: vieux ou noveaux? A7 G D As he motioned the dark man inside. Fm D Business in Aruba concluded E7 A He now had a little money to spend G A7 D That's how I came to meet my African friend. D We were rolling the bones several hours A7 G D Conversing as most gamblers do D We were calling on all of our powers A7 G D Hoping to see the night through. D G D But not approving at all of our winnings A7 G D The pit boss he tugged at his sleeve D Through the whole thing my new friend was grinning A7 G D Then he motioned it's time we should leave. Fm D With our night at the tables behind us E7 A We were ready just to do it again G A7 D That's when I came to know my African friend. D But I woke up on the steps of a whorehouse A7 G D A soldier told me I'd better leave D As I stumbled to find me a taxi A7 G D I saw a note pinned to my sleeve. D G D It was a pleasure and a hell of an evenin A7 G D Truly was our night to win D But the authorities insist on my leaving A7 G D Take care my American friend. Fm D With my weekend at Haiti concluded E7 A I now had a little money to spend G A7 D That's when I came to meet my African friend G A7 D That's how I came to know another good friend.
