Changing Channels
   ------Jimmy Buffett

Changing Channels
By: Jimmy Buffett, Mac McAnally
1989
Girl of a thousand faces
From a long line of basket cases
Daughter of a fortune teller
Oh the lovely Isabella

Chorus:
She's changing channels
Stayin' on her toes
She's just changing channels
As she goes

This place is full of beachhead sailors
Fishermen and old retailers
Simple lives are so deep seated
And history always gets repeated

Some folks see a birds eye view
Others haven't got a clue
Some will go and some will stay
It doesn't matter anyway

Chorus:
They are changing channels
Crazy girls and boys
They'll be changing channels
Changing toys

Survivors of tidal waves
Children of former slaves
Strange how they all behave
Like it's another world

There's an island in the ocean
Where the people stay in motion
Somewhere on the old gulf stream
Do they live or did I dream

Chorus:
They were changing channels
Waitin' for their sails to fill
They'll be changing channels
Always will

They'll be changing channels
Waitin' for their sails to fill
They'll be changing channels
Always will

To Joseph Campbell and Bruce Chadwick whose words and thoughts were an
inspiration. To Charlie Allen and Lt. Jim "Amos" Anderson whose spirits
linger with me though their days on the planet were far too few.
