Carey Ukulele Chords

[C]The wind is in from Africa, [G]last night I couldn’t sleep
Oh, you know it [F]sure is hard to [C]leave here Carey
But it’s really [G]not my home
[C]My fingernails are filthy, I got [G]beach tar on my feet
And I [F]miss my clean white [C]linen and my fancy French co[G]logne

Oh Carey get out your cane, [C]and I’ll put on some [G]silver
[F]Oh you’re a mean old Daddy, but I [G]like [C]you fine

Come on down to the Mermaid Café and I will [G]buy you a bottle of wine
And we’ll [F]laugh and toast to [C]nothing and smash our [G]empty glasses down
Let’s have a [C]round for these freaks and these soldiers
A [G]round for these friends of mine
Let’s have another [F]round for the bright red [C]devil
Who keeps me [G]in this tourist town

Come on Carey get out [C]your cane, I’ll put on some [G]silver
[F]Oh you’re a mean old Daddy, [C]but I [G]like [C]you

[C]Maybe I’ll go to Amsterdam,
[G]Maybe I’ll go to Rome and [F]rent me a grand pi[C]ano
And put some [G]flowers ’round my room
But [C]let’s not talk about fare thee wells now
The [G]night is a starry dome
And they’re [F]playing that scratchy [C]rock and roll
Beneath the [G]Matala Moon

Come on Carey get out your [C]cane, I’ll put on some [G]silver
[F]Oh you’re a mean old Daddy, [C]but I [G]like [C]you

The wind is in from Africa, [G]last night I couldn’t sleep
Oh you know it [F]sure is hard to [C]leave here
But it’s really not [G]my home

[C]Maybe it’s been too long a time
Since I was [G]scrambling down in the street
Everybody [F]look for that clean white [C]linen
And that fancy [G]French cologne

Oh Carey get out your [C]cane, I’ll put on my finest [G]silver
We’ll [F]go to the Mermaid [C]Café, have [G]fun to[C]night
I said, [F]Oh, you’re a mean old [C]Daddy
But you’re [G]out of [C]sight
