Jimmy BuffettI Heard I Was In Town

I heard I was in town

By: jimmy buffett, michael utley

1981

For the people of key west

Past, present and future

Came to see friends

Walk old streets again

Grab a bite and a beer by the sea

It caught my attention

The old town has grown

Thats why I came alone

Ive been treated well

I raised all kinds of hell

When a full tank was only a fin

Aint it quite funny how things turn around

I heard I was in town

Madman in a pickup truck

So many years ago

Changes have come like the storms of the season

But time here still moves slow

Passed the old joints

My favorite haunts

Wed stay for twelve or ten

Aint it quite funny word gets around

I heard I was in town

(instrumental)

I was a madman in a pickup truck

So many years ago

Changes have come like the storms of the seasons

Time here still moves slow

Came to see friends

Walk old streets again

Maybe strike up a tune with the moon

Dont it seem funny

Word gets around

I heard I was in town

Coda:

Aint it quite funny

Word gets around

I heard I was in town
