                  Skipper Dan (Acoustic Ver)- Weird Al Yankovic
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tune your guitar a half step down for this song

Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

*This is how I play the song 

Intro Riff/Verse

NOTE: The last note isn't played the same as the electric guitar does it in the song, 
however it makes it easier to play by yourself on an acoustic guitar.

I stared in every high school play
Blew every drama teacher away
Graduated first in my class at Juilliard
Took every acting workshop I could
And I dreamed of Hollywood
While I read my Uda Hagen
And studied the Bard

    That's not the way that it's all worked out


CHORUS


      C#m  B            A             E
I'm a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

A       E          B
Skipper Dan is the name

        C#m   B  A           E        A     E             B
And I'm doing 34 shows every day, and every time it's the same

C#m           B               A              E
Look at those hippos, they're wiggling their ears

A                              B
Just like they've done for the last 50 years

        C#m            B                  A        E
Now I'm laughing at my own jokes, but I'm crying inside

           A              B             BACK TO INTRO/VERSE RIFF
'Cause I'm working on the Jungle Cruise ride

VERSE 2
(Con't Riff throughout)

Oh the critics they used to say, I was the new Olivier
Thought I'd be the toast of Sundance, or maybe Cannes


PRECHORUS
              E                A  E5
Ah, but don't bother trying to IMDB me,

    E                    A        E5  
The only place you might possibly see me,

   E                A                    E
Is riding my little boat around Adventureland,

         A
It ain't exactly what I planned but
 


CHORUS

      C#m  B            A             E
I'm a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

A       E          B
Skipper Dan is the name

        C#m   B  A           E        A     E             B
And I'm doing 34 shows every day, and every time it's the same 

C#m        B             A                 E 
I would've killed if I'd been in Speed-the-Plow

A                                B
But what's the difference that's all behind me now

           C#m        B            A             E
'Cause I'm paying the rent and I'm swallowing my pride

        A              B             E
And I'm working on the Jungle Cruise ride



BRIDGE
(KEY CHANGE TO G)

G                      A                      D                Bm
  I should be there on Broadway, knocking 'em dead in 12 Angry Men

G                      A
  But instead I'm here telling these lame jokes

(BACK TO KEY OF E)

B
Again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again!


REPEAT CHORUS CHORDS FROM EARLIER OVER THE JUNGLE JOKES

[Bengal tigers can jump over 20 feet...
 That's an African Bull-Elephant...
 There it is the backside of water! What have I done with my life?]

LAST CHORUS W/ CHANGE

C#m         B                A           E
I should've listened when my Grandfather said

A                      B
Why don't you major in business instead?

       C#m       B               A               E
Now my hopes are vanished and my dreams have all died

         A             B                          <----Chord change in this part of Chorus
And I'll probably work forever as a

C#m  B            A             E
Tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

A       E          B
Skipper Dan is the name

        C#m   B  A           E        A                   B
And I'm doing 34 shows every day, and every time it's the same

C#m           B               A              E
Look at those hippos, they're wiggling their ears

A                        B
Somebody shoot me 'cause I'm bored to tears!

       C#m         B         A            E
Always said I'd be famous, I guess that I lied

           A              B             C#m
'Cause I'm working on the Jungle Cruise ride

          A              B             E
I'm still working on the Jungle Cruise ride!
